After weeks of teasing twitpics, the filming of Arrested Development's highly anticipated fourth season is set to get underway today.

Deadline is reporting that all principal cast members of the resurrected TV show are expected to return.

That includes: Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat and Tony Hale. Likewise, Mitch Hurwitz, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and the rest of the production team are all due to reprise their respective roles (with Howard doubling as the show's narrator).

As hinted at two weeks ago, the new season will reportedly be comprised of ten episodes, each revolving around a single Bluth family member, with multiple characters providing support in certain episodes.

Production is expected to last into the fall, with all ten episodes being released simultaneously on Netflix sometime in early 2013.
