We already know John Slattery is going to be there for much of Arrested Development's long-awaited fourth season—but there are even more guest stars lined up for the show now. It was announced today that Isla Fisher and Terry Crews will both make their debuts. They join returning side players including Henry Winkler (Barry Zuckerkorn), Judy Greer (Kitty Sanchez), Scott Baio (Bob Loblaw), Jeff Garlin (Mort Meyers), Mae Whitman (Egg/Ann/Her?), and Liza Minnelli (Lucille 2). Minnelli, in particular, seems to have a particularly important role this season, judging by this [SPOILER ALERT] set photo.

Meanwhile, there have been more tidbits about the new season from star Jason Bateman, producer Ron Howard, and the man in charge Mitch Hurwitz, in the past few weeks. Hurwitz told Vulture about how the new season is "almost an anthology version of the show with each episode focusing on a particular character and where they've been since the family fell apart six years ago." Here are some more highlights:

Hurwitz on the movie:

The episodes are an outgrowth of the design of what we hope will be the movie. They precede it. They function as an act one of a movie that we all want to do, but haven't "sold" yet. The episodes take the audience through the experiences of the characters since the family "fell apart" and how they're brought together to deal with their new problems. I would give you a hint as to what those problems are, but, really, why rob the fans of being disappointed when they see it on Netflix.

Bateman on more guest stars:

No, I mean, truthfully we’re only a little bit of the way through. Almost halfway through it. And a lot of us haven’t seen what is to come. So, yeah, there could be, but I know if and when the movie happens there’s been a lot of talk … there are people that have kind of reserved spots in that that would be very exciting.

Howard on the new episodes:

Yeah, I really am. I think it's great and that the writing is great. It's very bold. I'm very proud of Mitch [Mitchell Hurwitz]. You know it's not going off into some place that's going to alienate people who love those characters, but it's just going to further enrich their interest in these characters, and the way these characters make us all laugh. I think he's really done something great. The cast is so excited about it. And it's cool and fun to get back in that groove, it's also pushing the boundaries from a story standpoint, character standpoint, and a comedic standpoint in a way that really inspires them. So it doesn't feel like some opportunistic reunion, it feels like the next iteration of it all.
