Just in case you were wondering if the new season of Arrested Development, exclusively on Netflix, could get any better, the answer is a resounding yes, yes it can, because the amazing Kristen Wiig has been added to the cast, where she’ll be playing a young Lucille Bluth. See? AMAZING. Via Vulture

Word’s out that Kristen Wiig and Seth Rogen filmed a little somethin’ for the upcoming season of Arrested Development, premiering on Netflix in May. But who will the Bridesmaids star be playing? Stop reading now if you don’t want to be spoiled, but it’s a good one … Vulture has learned exclusively that Wiig will be playing young Lucille Bluth (Jessica Walter)! Makes sense: Wiig and Jason Bateman are presumably pals after having co-starred in the comedies Extract and Paul (in which they spent their down time inventing the rule-less game “Stop, Stop the Robber’s Coming”).

Awww crap, now I’m going to have to renew my Netflix subscription, won’t I? It’s not like I can just NOT watch this, right? Hopefully, Canadian Netflix will actually pick this one up. Seriously, you Americans really don’t know how good you guys have it with your Netflix.
