Fans have been pining for a new season of Arrested Development and were overjoyed when Netflix confirmed that more episodes were in the works. For quite some time, the filming details were unknown, but Jason Bateman (Michael Bluth) has just revealed that production begins on Aug. 8.

Bateman shared a photo of Lucille Bluth's (Jessica Walter) living room set, which is one of the main settings for the show. Along with the shot, he gave fans a solid start date for the new season.
"Here comes trouble. The Bluths move back in on the 8th," he wrote.
Most of the other cast members are keeping mum on their involvement in the new season (which is said to involve flashbacks and a murder mystery), but Jeffrey Tambor (George Sr.) and Tony Hale (Buster) retweeted the news, presumably confirming their return.
Will Arnett (Gob) had a curious comment on the tweet, telling Bateman, "Have fun man. Say hi to everyone for me."

Fans naturally panicked, thinking that Bluth's illusionist brother would not be returning for the show. However, some fans think Arnett was either trolling or just not involved in the show's first day of shooting.
Wait. Why say hello? You need to be there. Don't toy with a man's emotions Arnett!— Steve Kaye (@SteveKayeLV) July 30, 2017

Regardless, most fans are thrilled to have more of the Bluth family's antics on their way back to Netflix.
