Arrested Development: Season Four Update

arrested development reunionThere’s still more than a year to go before the Bluth family returns for more Arrested Development, but co-executive producer Dean Lorey assures us that progress is being made.

On his blog, under the heading “ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT new season,” he wrote:

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…

The fourth season of Arrested Development was announced last October by series creator Hurwitz at the New Yorker Festival. The show originally aired for three low-rated seasons on FOX, from 2003-2006.

Series star Bateman confirmed the news shortly after it was announced, writing, “It’s true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early ’13. VERY excited!”

Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, later said, “Arrested Development is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and its return through Netflix is a perfect example of how we are working closely with studios and networks to provide consumers with entertainment they love.”

What do you think? Are you excited for the new episodes? Do you think there will be more than 10 episodes? Do you think the movie will still happen?

Am I excited to see the greatest show in the history of television return? Gee, I’ll have to think about it.

As Cera’s career has come out of the stratosphere , it is nice to see that he has come back into the fold. It would be fun to see some new episodes and a movie. I guess I will have to think about getting Netflix.
