Arrested Development Is Returning to TV


On Sunday, this weekend's New Yorker Festival broke a second piece of semi-nerdy TV news. During a panel featuring the first reunion of the Arrested Development cast since the show's 2005 cancellation, creator Mitch Hurwitz said that the series would return to television for a nine- or ten-episode run, to be released sometime in 2013 as a lead-in to the very highly anticipated movie (which is apparently "80 percent" happening). As Hurwitz told the Times after the announcement: "[I] found that as time went by, there was so much more to the story." Just as we always suspected. [NYer]
