Arrested Development Is OFFICIALLY BACK!

new season of arrested development to air on netflix

IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!

We can't believe it, but it's finally happening!

Netflix has officially bought the rights to air the new season of Arrested Development, which will be 9-10 episodes that bridge that gap between the original series and the upcoming film, and they will debut exclusively to subscribers in early 2013!

Apparently, it came down to a bidding war between them and Showtime, but the cable network couldn't cut it! Each episode will apparently focus exclusively on one of the members of the Bluth clan, and although there are no deals in place for the actors, all have expressed interest in reprising their roles!

AH-MAZING!

ImagineTV's Brian Grazer and Ron Howard explain:

"Everyone, ourselves included, seems to feel like the Bluths left the party a bit too soon. Bringing a series back from cancellation almost never happens, but then, Arrested always was about as unconventional as they get, so it seems totally appropriate that this show that broke the mold is smashing it to pieces once again.”

AMEN to that!

We literally CANNOT contain our excitement!

How about U?? Are U excited for the glorious return of Arrested Development?!

    For the life of me, I could never figure out why in the world anyone would drop that show in the first place.



  3. 3

    I don't want to get too excited yet. That show was so *** damned amazing, it has an almost unreasonably high bar to return to.

    Seems like they are just picking back up so here's to hoping the dynamic wasn't lost.

    UK networks: Please pick this series up.

    Why are fans having to pay for Netflix to get see it? I'll be finding an alternative way to watch it.

    love it. not for everyone. most of the lemmings would rather watch a predictable laugh track shit fest like "two and a half" men, than something as good as "ad". one of my atf's too. those who are complaining, if its 10 episodes, you can get netflix for cheaper than showtime. buck up. arrested develpment should be worth it.

    What is this about?

    I do not have Netflix, seldom watch TV (have Directv) and go to the movies on Discount Day, so need to know, as a senior citizen on a VERY limited budget, if this is worthwhile.

    "The story of one man surrounded by sponges" should be an indication that they will be in typical AD mode. Love their AD's spin on humor. Definitely the best comedy ever. I totally agree with Stickrat!

    Or maybe that is an old poster…Probably is.
