'Arrested Development' Returning For One More Season
For this year's New Yorker Festival, a Bluth Family Reunion took place--and creator Mitchell Hurwitz, along with Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia di Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter gathered today, Sunday afternoon, in Manhattan for a sold-out panel.
Fans speculated what big news could possibly come out of the panel--probably something about that movie we've been hearing so much about--but the official New Yorker Twitter account just revealed some big news no one expected: Arrested Development is coming back for one more season of television.
Weeding through Twitter, we're discovering a bit more info: Hurwitz has planned nine to ten new episodes of Arrested Development to catch us up on what's happened to the Bluths since we last bid our untimely goodbyes. These new television episodes will lead up to the release of the film.
Bateman, who plays Michael Bluth, has also since tweeted his confirmation:
Tears of happy, friends. We're ready, Hurwitz!
