Just when you thought Netflix's "Arrested Development" revival couldn't get any more awesome, Vulture broke the news that "Bridesmaids" star Kristen Wiig would guest star in Season 4 as ... a young Lucille Bluth!

Yes, the "Saturday Night Live" MVP will be playing a younger version of Jessica Walter's sociopathic matriarch, which hopefully means that the show is also on the lookout for someone to play a younger version of her nemesis, Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli) when the show premieres on Netflix in May. Further details on Wiig's role are being kept under wraps.

In addition to Wiig and Seth Rogen, familiar faces such as John Slattery, Ben Schwartz, Chris Diamantopoulos, Conan O'Brien, Isla Fisher and Terry Crews will be making their "AD" debut in Season 4.

While it's a given that the entire dysfunctional Bluth clan will be back, other returning stars include Minneilli, Judy Greer as Kitty Sanchez, Mae Whitman as Ann Veal, Henry Winkler as Barry Zuckerkorn, James Lipton as Warden Stefan Gentles, Carl Weathers as himself, Andy Richter as himself (and perhaps the rest of the Richter quintuplets?) and Scott Baio as Bob Loblaw. Earlier this month, executive producer/narrator Ron Howard tweeted what could be the first cast photo from the show's new season.

Are you excited to see Kristen Wiig on "Arrested Development"? Who do you think could play a young Lucille 2?
