It’s always a good day when Arrested Development updates are abound on the internet and today’s tidbit is a great one. According to Rolling Stone, via Warming Glow, it looks like Arrested Development will get a movie. THEN a season 5 series order. Yep, that’s right, I just blue myself.
As if you needed a James Bond type announcement, but it’s pretty much confirmed that the Bluths will indeed return for a 5th season. Slashfilm and WarmingGlow reported that last week, creator Mitchell Hurwitz confirmed that the Bluths will be back, delivering a definitive “definitely” in Montreal at the Just for Laughs comedy festival. In fact, Hurwitz even went as far as asking the Netflix chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, who was conveniently sitting with him if they could discuss it at the moment because he’s got “kids to feed.”
Howdy, howdy! It’s about that time again, time for a TV News Roundup! We’ll find all the news that’s fit for print out in the world of television today and bring it to you in one nice neat package. Without further adieu, let’s get to it!
It is the moment we have been waiting on for several years. Arrested Developement is back and the Bluth family has returned to make us cringe, laugh, and question the television executives that canceled the series back in the day. Obviously things are a bit different now and we have a lot to catch up on. Luckily, Netflix partnered up with Mitch Hurwitz, the creator, to release 15 episodes all at once at 12pm Pacific Standard Time on May 26th, 2013. It’s a bold move as the episodes for the most part concentrate on a specific timeline and looks at the different perspectives of the Bluth family so really, it’s one mega episode. The question is, does it work? Yes and no. Regardless, let the great experiment begin!
We are now less than 2 weeks away from the triumphant return of the Bluth family and May 26th can’t get here soon enough. So while we wait for that ‘sure to be a glorious’ day, Netflix has given us an Arrested Development season 4 trailer to salivate over…
