The greatest television show in history is back… or at least it’s on its way. You can start dancing in the streets now.
On Sunday, Mitchell Hurwitz and the cast of my favorite television show, Arrested Development, met for a panel at the New Yorker Festival. During the panel, Hurwitz announced that he has plans to write a 9 or 10 episode season of Arrested Development that takes place 5 years after the 3rd seasons finale. It will be a lead-in to a feature film that Hurwitz is currently writing.
The announcement was later confirmed by Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, and it looks like the entire old cast is on board. Though a network has not picked up the possible fourth season yet, Hurwitz is shopping it around, and both Showtime and Netflix are rumored to be interested.
I cannot truly express my excitement in words: Arrested Development is and will always be my favorite tv show, and I’ve been waiting for years to hear about the oft-rumored film. Anyone else freaking out as much as I am?
