HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? This news implies some sort of supernatural intervention to me, by a force that surrounds us and penetrates us and binds the galaxy together but most importantly penetrates us. While on the show’s panel at The New Yorker Festival this weekend with the cast, show creator Mitch Hurtwitz apparently revealed plans to give Arrested Development a new 9 or 10 episode run before going forward with the upcoming Arrested Development movie. 20th Century Fox is allegedly in talks with both Netflix and Showtime to potentially air the limited series, which will “have each installment focus on a different member of the Bluth clan.”
“It’s true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early ‘13. VERY excited!,” Jason Bateman tweeted yesterday. This is ancient astronaut-level shit for real.
