Arrested Development

(Everett Collection)

Liza Minnelli will reportedly resume her role of Lucille Austero, the older girlfriend of Buster Bluth (Tony Hale), for Netflix’s new season of Arrested Development, according to TV Guide. During the initial run of the show, Lucille – who suffered from vertigo and shared the same first name as Buster’s manipulative mother (Jessica Walter) – and Buster engaged in an unorthodox romance, simmering with unsettling Oedipal implications.

Netflix has revived Arrested Development for a long-delayed fourth season, scheduled for return next spring, that will consist of at least 10 episodes.
