The "Arrested Development" reunion keeps on growing. As filming continues for the Netflix revival of the cancelled Fox comedy, more of the show's beloved guest stars are returning to set. According to TV Guide, Liza Minnelli is the latest addition, set to reprise her role as Lucille Austero, neighbor and frenemy to similarly-named Lucille Bluth (Jessica Walter), the matriarch of the dysfunctional clan at the center of the show.

Minnelli's character was also the May-December lover of Buster Bluth (Tony Hale), much to his mother's chagrin, and we can't help but wonder if her return spells a rekindled romance for the odd couple. Minnelli joins other "Arrested" alums such as Henry Winkler (who played Bluth family lawyer Barry Zuckerkorn), Scott Baio (the tragically named Bob Loblaw) and Walter's "Archer" co-star Judy Greer (psychotic assistant Kitty Sanchez).

Additionally, Ron Howard will be stepping out of the voiceover booth (where he served as the show's narrator for its original three seasons) and in front of the camera again for at least one episode.

Despite those familiar faces, there's still plenty of room for fresh blood, and "Mad Men's" John Slattery will be joining the show as a new character -- the details of which are currently being kept under wraps.

The show's fourth season is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in the spring, and despite initially being announced as a 10-episode run, may be stretched to 13 episodes because, as star David Cross told Rolling Stone, there's "too much story."
