Pour yourself a Martini (and toast) with a side of disfunction because Arrested Development Season 5 begins production NEXT WEEK!

After four years away from the beloved series, it seems Jason Bateman was back on set.

He shared a photo of Lucille and George Bluth’s Balboa Towers penthouse apartment, and the iconic penthouse looks as regal as ever. The only thing missing is the vodka and Buster’s hand chair.

Bateman, who plays middle son Michael on the series, aptly captioned the photo, “Here comes trouble. The Bluths move back in on the 8th.” We seriously can’t wait for more!

When we last saw the Bluths, they had lost their company to Lucille Austero (Liza Minelli), Lucille Bluth’s good frenemy and Buster’s on-again, off-again lover. At the end of the fourth season, Lucille Austero went missing and Buster was charged with her murder.

Earlier this month, Bateman revealed that the fifth season would be a “whodunit” about the mystery surrounding Lucille Austero’s death.

Bateman also recently told Deadline that the fifth season wouldn’t necessarily be the end of Arrested Development, saying that the fifth season is the second act of a three-act story designed by Hurwitz. He added that there aren’t any plans for the third act just yet but if the fifth season is well-received, it could definitely be on the table.

Come on, Netflix, are you chicken or something?

The fifth season of Arrested Development will air on Netflix sometime in 2018. We’re so excited we’re perfecting our hot ham water recipe as we speak!
