Not only are we getting new episodes of "Arrested Development," but the whole cast is coming back, and the production got underway today, confirms Deadline, just as actor Jason Bateman promised a few weeks ago, too!In what's considered the cult hit's fourth season, the series will be shown on Netflix (and not on the Fox network, where it began, and was cancelled in 2006).

More from Deadline:

The original’s producers Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox TV are behind the sequel, with Hurwitz, Troy Miller and Imagine’s Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo set to executive produce the new episodes. Howard also is reprising his role as the series’ narrator. Each of the new episodes follows one member of the Bluth clan, although some episodes may feature multiple characters. Arrested Development will be in production through the fall.

These new episodes are thought to be "a bridge" between the original series and the pending "Arrested Development" movie. There could be more episodes, though, if these initial 10 are successful.

Netflix has yet to set a premiere date for the episodes. Hang tight!
