Break out the frozen bananas, everyone! The new season of Arrested Development looks like it's going to be a corker! Bridesmaids' Kristen Wiig and lovable schlub, Seth Rogen will join the cast when the new season airs in the US on Netflix, in May. According to New York magazine, Wiig will be playing the young Lucille Bluth (Jessica Walter)! Makes sense: Wiig and Jason Bateman co-starred in the comedies Extract and Paul (in which they spent their down time inventing the rule-less game “Stop, Stop the Robber’s Coming”).
Wiig and Rogen will join an impressive list of guest stars in the new series which includes Mad Men's John Slattery and Judy Greer.
According to Us magazine, the upcoming season will have each episode dedicated to one character, starting with Jason Bateman's Michael Bluth, Hurwitz announced at The New Yorker Festival back in 2011.
"It's an unusual style of show," he told reporters at the time. "It's all just going to build this peril in their life until they all come together, really, in the first scene of the movie."
