So for the four Arrested Development fans who haven’t heard yet, it was recently announced that the super brilliant, award-winning show with a rabid fan base that FOX couldn’t figure out how to promote or market, is launching a new season. Fortunately for the show, it won’t be on FOX, but rather on Showtime, according to Entertainment Weekly.
So, here is the scoop. It is basically one season that will have 9 or 10 episodes. Each episode will focus on the events of each individual characters life after the cancelled FOX series, bringing us up to date on their current mishaps and predicaments. Which will ultimately accumulate in them all coming together in…
The Arrested Development MOVIE. Rumors about this thing have been floating around forever but nothing substantial had ever been heard or seen (scene?) BUT it is has now been officially announced by show creator Michael Hurwitz that there will indeed be a movie.
Okay, I have mixed emotions about this. Generally speaking, TV shows don’t make for good movies, that being said, if anybody can do it, Arrested Development should be able too. You would also think that with the shows early cancellation they still had plenty of material to pull from.
Regardless, it will still be awesome to see the TV show back together again, even if just for one season.
Oh btw, the first episode in the show is said to catch up on Buster (Tony Hale) and his absurd life. Weirdly enough, I got to meet Tony Hale at Sound of Music Sing-A-Long at the Hollywood Bowl last year.
Now if we could just get AD to come to Comic Con!
