The photos, appearing on the fan blog Bluth Family Reunion, promise some interesting developments in the show's fourth season. For one, it appears George-Michael is attending the University of California at Irvine. For another, it seems he's as terrible with women as ever.
Interestingly, George-Michael appears to have adopted his Uncle Gob's iconic Segway as a mode of transportation, helmet and all. And the Segway is -- or was at one point -- "State Evidence"?
The next two shots don't reveal too many plot details, but they do give us a good shot of George-Michael and his father Michael Bluth (played by Jason Bateman) talking as they explore the campus. Both actors looks completely at home in their old roles.
The first week of filming for "Arrested Development's" fourth season wrapped Friday.
BuzzSugar has also compiled a few shots of the new season, depicting Lindsay Bluth Funke (played by Portia de Rossi) and Tobias Funke (played by David Cross) at an airport in Burbank, Calif. In an appropriately bizarre move, Tobias appears to have a white sheet wrapped over most of his body, but one can faintly detect his signature cutoff shorts underneath. Check out the photos here.
"Arrested Development," canceled by Fox in 2006 after three years, built itself a dedicated cult following since it left the air. For years, fans petitioned the network to bring the series back as a movie. Then, last November, Netflix announced it would be airing a new season of the show online. Fans everywhere rejoiced.
The fan favorite premiered on Fox in 2003. It followed the lives of a dysfunctional wealthy Orange County family, the Bluths. Before it was canceled, "Arrested Development" kick-started the careers of Michael Cera and Will Arnett, while revitalizing the then-struggling career of Jason Bateman.
Season 4 of "Arrested Development" is set to premiere early next year on Netflix. The online streaming service plans to make all 10 new episodes available at once, rather than spreading them out over several weeks.
Originally, series creator Mitchell Hurwtiz intended the fourth season to serve as a lead-in for a feature film, with each episode focusing on a single character, allowing fans to catch up with the Bluths one-on-one. This plan appears to have been scrapped, and Hurwitz now plans to use the full cast in each episode. No news of the planned movie has emerged since it was initially announced last October.
