The actress starred in the first three seasons of Arrested Development as George Michael's (Michael Cera) girlfriend Ann Veal, a character often mocked for heir plain looks.

Whitman has now revealed that she recently spoke with the show's creator Mitch Hurtwitz about reprising the role for the 2013 miniseries.

"I've always been like, 'Oh I don't want to give anything away', but I definitely, definitely wouldn't ever let this chance go by without being a part of it," she said, according to Hollywood.com.

Whitman is currently also playing Amber on Parenthood, but she stressed that she will rearrange her schedule to shoot Arrested Development as well.

"I told Mitch that I would stand outside the sound stage until he would let me just walk through the background or something," she joked.

The star added: "I would say yes, you can definitely expect to find a little bit of Ann hiding in the background somewhere, at least."

Whitman is one of many Arrested Development guest stars who will return for the upcoming reunion season.

Liza Minnelli was confirmed this week to reprise her character Lucille Austero, while Judy Greer is expected back as corrupt secretary Kitty Sanchez.

Henry Winkler and Scott Baio will play the Bluth family's attorneys once again.

Arrested Development will stream on Netflix in the US and the UK in 2013.
