List of the best supporting characters on Arrested Development. Click here for the best Arrested Development characters. Guest stars, including Henry Winkler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Ben Stiller, have helped make Arrested Development one of the most loved cult TV shows of all time. Cancelled after three seasons in 2006, the series returns on streaming giant Netflix with 15 brand-new episodes starring our favorite members of the Bluth clan. Arrested Development's long-awaited fourth season promises full episodes dedicated to each member of the Bluths.

Joining the Bluth family along the way are some of the most memorable recurring characters and guest stars on television, from Liza Minnelli's vertigo-suffering Lucille Austero (aka Lucille Two), to scheming, cross-eyed secretary Kitty Sanchez, to Carl Weathers -- playing himself. Other Arrested Development celebrity cameos include Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler, and TV star Scott Baio.
