New Arrested Development Underway
Jason Bateman reveals first set pic

As a picture from on-set, it's not what you might call revealing, but what it represents is huge. "First day. Away we go..." tweeted Jason Bateman, and posted a behind-the-scenes image from the new Arrested Development. The Bluths are officially back!

Arrested Development, for those poor deprived souls yet to experience it, is the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. That one son was Jason Bateman, and the extended Bluth family was made up of Will Arnett, Michael Cera, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia De Rossi, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale and Jessica Walter. 

Cancelled after a paltry three seasons, it was one of those holy-grail TV shows both for its fans and creative team, who all hung on to the hope that it would one day be resurrected. And here it is! The original plan this time last year was that the episodes would lead into a movie (the movie was announced first). Whether that's still on the cards remains unclear, but we've come this far...

Ten episodes are being filmed, possibly each focusing on a single character. All of them are currently set to arrive simultaneously on Netflix in early 2013.

NOT the first picture, couple of weeks back Jason Bateman posted two shots of Micheal Cera in the almost finished Bluth home. Question. Is the show going to be able to be viewed on NetflixUK? More
