Arrested Development is lining up an impressive guest list for its re-launch and return. One notable luminary that is reportedly set to appear? Conan O’Brien (and side-kick Andy Richter, of course).
During a visit to the TBS late-night show Conan, Arrested cast member Will Arnett revealed that both Conan and Richter are joining the show’s fourth season, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
“I don’t want to give away too much … but there are a few people on this stage tonight who are a part of it,” Arnett said, smirking at both O’Brien and Richter.
“A few means more than two,” Richter replied, with Arnett clarifying: “And Less than four. … It’s us,” he replied, pretty much confirming the host’s guest spot.
Arrested Development was a critical darling during its three-season run seven years ago, and was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season with a 10-episode run. The show is expected to debut in the spring on the streaming service, and all of the show’s original cast are back for the re-launch. Joining them are guest stars Henry Winkler and Carl Weathers, who had roles during the original run, as well as Mad Men‘s John Slattery, Isla Fisher, and Terry Crews, reports MSN.
Add Conan and Richter to the list, and you’ve got yourself a guest star cast too promising to miss. A mere $8 a month seems like a steal for Netflix right about now.
“We’re having such a good time being back together. … It’s been seven years and we all just picked up where we left off,” Arnett said during the interview.
Here’s Will Arnett’s interview with Conan O’Brien, during which he pretty much confirms that the host will appear on Arrested Development when it returns in spring:
