Kristen Wiig Joins Arrested Development
As a young Lucille Bluth, perhaps?

As our exclusive Arrested Development Season 4 quotes from Jason Bateman went down so well yesterday, it's only fair to announce some more AD4 news: both Kirsten Wiig and Seth Rogen are on board for Netflix's comedy revival.

Vulture have stated that Wiig will be playing a younger version of everyone's favourite winking matriarch, Lucille Bluth, but with all 14 episodes in Mitchell Hurwitz' beautifully complicated series all centring on different characters and sharing the same time period, pretty much anything can happen here.

There are no clues to Seth Rogen's role as yet, but what is known is that he's joining the likes of Andy Richter (as both himself and Donnie, Chareth, Rocky, and Emmitt Richter), Terry Crews, Conan O'Brien, John Slattery and Isla Fisher on the castlist.

Season 4 of Arrested Development will arrive on Netflix at some point in May.
