Huzzah! The entire cast will return to film a new season of ‘Arrested Development.’ The new episodes will make their debut on Netflix according to one of the show’s writers, Dean Lorey.
A 10 episode followup is already underway. The confirmation that the cult hit will return came in October. The idea of bringing the series back has been tossed around for years. Finally, in October the ‘AD’ creator, Mitch Hurwitz, confirmed the return. Jason Bateman followed with a confession that the Bluths would be back.
The entire cast is back so there will be no awkward explanations of missing characters or recasts. Beyond the tv, the sitcom will also make its way to film. Dean confirmed the re-development on his blog…
“We’re really doing this thing. Mitch Hurwitz, Jim Vallely and I are off writing the new season of ARRESTED to premiere on Netflix in 2013. The original cast is back. There are offices and parking spaces. We’re shooting this year. I wish I could give more specifics but, for the moment, even the schedule is being kept under wraps. But it’s happening and it’s great to be back with my pals from the show. More later as it becomes okay to release further details…”
Ah, yes please! If only my sister had convinced me real mother was Lucille Bluth and not some African woman who tossed me in the dumpster when I was a toddler because I “cried, pooped and didn’t color inside the lines,” I might have saved years in therapy.
