Minnelli will reprise her role as Lucille Austero, a character who made several appearances as the older girlfriend of socially awkward Bluth son Buster (Tony Hale). The wobbly character, who suffered from debilitating vertigo, shared the same name as Bluth matriarch, Lucille (Jessica Walter). The two Lucilles were often at odds.
Since Arrested ended, Minnelli has made limited TV appearances with roles on Drop Dead Diva and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Last season she was booked to appear on an episode of Hot in Cleveland, but was sidelined by an ankle injury.
Netflix is scheduled to release its new batch of Arrested episodes (anywhere from 10 -13) in 2013, and a feature film version is also in development. The entire original cast is participating.
