The first "official" photo for the upcoming, highly anticipated fourth season of Arrested Development has arrived, and comes courtesy of late night talk show host Conan O'Brien, who tweeted the image today. Check it out ahead and see if you can make sense of it!

We learned last week that Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter were set to appear in Arrested Development at some point when the series returns for its long overdue fourth season on Netflix next year. It's unclear what role they'll be playing in Season 4, though from the look of this photo, which O'Brien Tweeted, they might be playing themselves.

It looks like Andy's seated at a make-up vanity with Jason Bateman and O'Brien in some backstage area. Either we're looking at a set photo or Michael (Jason Bateman) is somewhere on a set (Conan's set?) with Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter. Along with the photo, O'Brien Tweeted, "Here's the 1st official photo from the new Arrested Development on @Netflix. Spoiler alert: I'm an amazing actor."

We've seen set photos from Season 4 Tweeted previously, but EW confirmed that this is the first Netflix-released photo, which gives it the "official" status.

As we speculated, it's not entirely clear if this is a set photo or an actual episode screenshot, but if the latter is the case, that would make it even more official in that we'd be looking at a moment from the actual show. Either way, it's exciting to get a new glimpse of the series!

Arrested Development Season 4 is set to arrive on Netflix sometime in 2013.
