The Bridesmaids star will play a young Lucille Bluth in the revived Netflix sitcom, Vulture reports.

Seth Rogen will also be making an appearance when the comedy launches its new episodes in May, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Each episode will revolve around a different character, starting with Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman).

Arrested Development ran for three seasons before being cancelled by Fox in 2006.
