10 new episodes of Arrested Development coming before the movie

It almost seems unreal, but it was revealed today in an Arrested Development cast reunion held by the New Yorker that Arrested Development will be getting a 10 episode TV season leading up to the movie.


Both Jason Bateman and Will Arnett confirm it on Twitter

Plus a picture of the cast from the event.


Needless to say I'm quite excited, Arrested Development is my favorite show of all time.

I've seen a bunch of random posts on Facebook about this today as well. Pretty exciting if true.

I'm super excited, but at the same time super concerned about ruining the legacy. I guess I should just have faith they won't screw it up...

This is the point where I usually wake up and weep for a good half hour, but for some reason that's not happening.

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

And world peace will happen before any of this BS does.

Do people honestly believe any of this shit? They have been lying... I mean promising a movie for 5 years, so now they will promise 9-10 more episodes. Why not just promise a trilogy of movies and 100 more episodes? Never will happen either.

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

Definitely a top 5 comedy show for me, including the third season (which many people seem to thin is subpar, I'm just not one of them). I'm with Geck about being concerned about the legacy. While I wasn't happy it was cancelled, that was a long time ago and I worry about them recapturing the magic.

Also the idea of this short "season" being made up of episodes that mostly focus on one character seems to miss the excellent ensemble aspect of the show for me. And of course, there's always the fear of them not being able to pull off a 90 minute film. The show had a fast pace and a definite rhythm, and while I'm certain it's possible to do that in a film, I am doubtful.

All that said, I hope for the best and no matter how it turns out, it can't affect my love for the original show.

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

I didn't read anywhere that it was one episode for one character, just that it would show what happened to them in the past five years.

I think you meant to say, "I'm disappointed it only lasted as long as it did in the first place."

No thanks needed, I'm here to help.
