I love the show but, yes, this is the correct answer. You just can't go home again. Leave it be.

I have the same advice for people who want a third Ghostbusters film.

QFT. Especially after all this time.

Apparently Showtime, Netflix, and Hulu are all seeking the rights to air this proposed new mini-season.

Please, anyone but Hulu, unless they can find another distributor/broadcaster for outside the US.

New episodes of Arrested Development are coming to Netflix in 2013!

At this time, however, the distribution is limited to U.S. residents.

Yeah, we'll see how well that works out. Silly media companies, they accuse piracy of destroying their industry yet they do everything in their power to give pirate sites more ad revenue.

Ah well, it's good to hear that there's a deal in place, that means Mitch Hurwitz doesn't have the luxury of procrastinating any longer.

I'll be concerned if Abraham Higgenbotham, who is currently an executive producer on ABC's Modern Family, isn't involved.

I could swear I read this thread months ago.

But good news that new episodes may actually be happening. This US only distribution is stupid though, they're really shooting themselves in the foot here.

Which is why I hope someone with a brain will someday realize this and stop hogtying themselves by aligning with Netflix or Hulu all the time.

Having recently become a fan of Portia De Rossi by way of Better Off Ted I'm interested in this, but they better announce a DVD/BD release or at least a Canadian broadcast.

Re: 10 new episodes of Arrested Development coming before the movie

Just because there isn't a foreign distribution plan in place doesn't mean there won't be one. New episodes are at least fifteen months away... be patient.

Re: 10 new episodes of Arrested Development coming before the movie

Updates: the entire cast has signed on, and apparently production has either already begun or has at least reached the "offices and parking spaces" stage, to quote the story published yesterday.

Plan currently calls for Netflix to distribute a 10-episode season in 2013 followed by a movie, though it doesn't say whether or not the movie is contingent on how well the season goes.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...ef=mostpopular

Still waiting for any word as to whether this will be available to folks who don't want to tithe to Netflix, i.e. a DVD/Blu-ray release later or broadcast, or availablity outside the US. (Netflix being available internationally doesn't mean the show will be. And as many people say regarding cable networks, not everyone can get nor wants Netflix.)

One of the sad things is Arrested Development missed out on capitalizing on things like the Housing Crisis and the recession; although I agree with the folks who posted earlier questioning whether revisiting AD is a good idea, you can't deny they're going to have a lot of story material to work with based on the stuff that's happened since it left the air.

Re: 10 new episodes of Arrested Development coming before the movie

Mitch Hurwitz and a few cast members appeared at a Netflix event today, and Hurwitz expanded a little bit on plans for the new season.

[...] Netflix chief Ted Sarandos confirmed that all 10 episodes of Arrested's long-awaited fourth season will premiere together on a single day sometime next year. Hurwitz also confirmed that production is set to begin this summer [...]

Originally, Hurwitz's plan had been to make the revival like an anthology, with each episode telling a somewhat self-contained story about a specific character. "That is now kind of evolving into becoming more like the old show again [...]"

"There's going to be some mystery sprinkled throughout this [but] instead of watching one a week and try to get ahead of it, the hope is [fans] will watch them all together and then go back and look for clues and connections," Hurwitz explained. "We'd also like to use the technology to provide additional material, where you might be able to access another part of the story."

All the episodes are going to be released at the same time? That's awesome!

Netflix did the same with Lilyhammer when it "premiered" on the service, and I assume that show and AD will form a pattern for future original series.
