The entire original cast of ‘Arrested Development’, as well as the original writers, are all now confirmed for a new season and a movie, which you may already know if you live near me and heard me squealing with delight just now.
To all the skeptics out there, (writer Dean) Lorey confirmed that production is underway, even though the schedule is under wraps. “There are offices and parking spaces,” he wrote. The new season is slated to debut on Netflix in 2013, with a film to follow.
It may seem weird that a show this great and with such obvious fan support couldn’t find a home on a network, but one look at the prime-time ratings for NBC or ABC and it’s obvious that those network executives really know what they’re doing. If it aint broke, don’t fix it, ya know.
