The cult Fox comedy starring Jason Bateman is being revived for a new season by Netflix, and will air in 2013.
Bateman tweeted a photo of himself with the show's producer and narrator Ron Howard and series creator Mitch Hurwitz.
He wrote: "Taken at AD mission control, today! All systems are go. Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks. Woo!"
Howard later tweeted his own photo of Hurwitz in the writer's room, saying: "Arrested Development for Netflix. IT'S ALIVE. This is what the writer's room looks like."
The new episodes will also air exclusively on Netflix in the UK next year.
The show's star Tony Hale recently revealed that the new episodes will take place in the present day, rather than immediately after the previous season.
