Winkler will reprise his role as Barry Zuckerkorn, the dingy and incompetent family attorney who does more harm than good for the Bluths, who was eventually replaced by Bob Loblaw (Scott Baio) on the cult series.

Winkler will appear in multiple episodes of the series, which Netflix brought back from the dead six years after Fox canceled the Jason Bateman starrer from Ron Howard and Mitch Hurwitz.

"I am supposed to be memorizing an Arrested Development scene with Maybe for today … don't tell anyone I was here OK?????" Winkler tweeted Friday.

"Mitch isn't trying to re-create something," Howard said recently. "It's been away for a while, and part of the fun that Mitch has been mining and exploiting is, what's new to discover about these people? What's delightfully unchanged? He and the writing staff and the actors have a fantastic sense of that."
