Jason Bateman, Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter in Arrested Development Season 4Returning on Netflix in the spring, Arrested Development Season 4 is naturally one of the most highly-anticipated programmes of the New Year. We’ve been teased with some brilliant news in recent months, from the original announcement through to casting news and set photos, and now the first official photo has landed.

Coming courtesy of TeamCoco, it sees the ever-brilliant Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) alongside Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter, who returns having starred in Season 3’s S.O.B.s, way back in 2006.

“Here’s the 1st official photo from the new Arrested Development on @Netflix. Spoiler alert: I’m an amazing actor: bit.ly/SVyDSz”

The new season will see the entirety of the original cast, led by Bateman, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, and Jeffrey Tambor, with Ron Howard returning to narrate.

And joining O’Brien and Richter will be the expectedly awesome new and familiar faces, including Judy Greer, Henry Winkler, Mae Whitman, Scott Biao, Jeff Garlin, Carl Weathers, and Liza Minnelli, with the great John Slattery cast in an as-yet-unknown role.

Arrested Development will be back with Season 4 in the spring, which is set to directly lead up to the long-awaited Arrested Development movie. We can’t wait. For now, here’s the great first official image from the new season, which you can click to enlarge.
