New Arrested Development episodes in the works

I just got back from the New Yorker Festivals Arrested Development reunion panel. Mitch Hurwitz said that they wrote so much material to fill in the gaps of what the characters have been up to that the plan is to now to shoot 9 to 10 episodes focusing on one character per episode leading up to the film. Nothing was said about how it would be distributed. They hope to start filming next summer. Also...all the rumors about Michael cera holding out was something that they put out as joke...or so they say.

I would bet these will be webisodes. I doubt they make it to network. MAYBE HBO/Sho.

I would think maybe FX might want to air them. Still in the Fox family

The cast said they were all committed to doing it.

Like everyone else I'm skeptical but would totally welcome an AD return if it actually comes
to fruition.

Maybe one of the streamers (Netflix/Amazon/Hulu/etc.) will bid for exclusive rights.

Showtime & Netflix to team with Fox for a new Arrested Development season? Is the movie finally becoming a reality?

Will Arnett:

Jason Bateman:

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!
http://twitter.com/#!/batemanjason/s...29729819766785

I'm cautiously optimistic.

Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

I've been waiting for more Arrested Development for so long, this is almost too good to be true.

And honestly, it might turn out to be exactly just that. Keep in mind, that after Arrested Development it wasn't like Hurwitz was turning out quality programing; Sit Down, Shut Up and Running Wilde anyone?

I agree. This all has been a giant meta-joke by the producers.

Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

It's taken seven years to get somewhat of an answer out of Hurwitz? Don't get me wrong as I'm excited, but aren't we past the prime of when this should've happened? It's taken what? Two failed television series for Hurwitz to think about moving forward?

Not to tug on the cock of Whedon, but Serenity was playing in theaters less than three years after Firefly's swift cancellation. The show averaged more viewers than Arrested Development's third season on air. The show moved over one million units domestically on both DVD and Blu-ray. Whedon and company even made the film accessible to those who never saw a single second of the television show.

So, what happened?

The film bombed. It pulled in $25 million domestically and $13 million internationally (as it was released direct-to-DVD in most non-English speaking territories). That was on a budget of $40 million prior to prints and advertising. While DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray sales were huge, it wasn't enough to move forward with future outings. Universal made their money back, but it wasn't enough to continue the franchise. Long story short: the fans came out, but nobody else did. This story will happen again with Arrested Development.

Again, I'm excited, but still skeptical of this actually happening and even more skeptical if Hurwitz still has it in him to put out a quality product. I saw Sit Down, Shut Up and Running Wilde. They both sucked.

If this is true and they're planning a 2013 release? Really? They need to fast track this and not wait.

Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

Just think of Hurwitz returning to AD like Peter Jackson returning to Tolkien and disregard what he did in the interim.
