Is that a banana in your pocket or are you happy to see us??
That is a banana! From Bluth's Frozen Banana Stand!
We're positively overwhelmed with feelings of joyfully delicious wonderment because, after a six year depressballz hiatus, Arrested Development returns to the small screen!
Fox, series creator Mitch Hurwitz, and new broadcast partner Netflix rounded up the same cast and crew for a new season to begin production TODAY!
Even Ron Howard returns as narrator!
The 10 episode season functions as a HIGHlarious bridge between the old series and the upcoming feature film — with each episode featuring a different main cast member.
This is so exhilarating!!
We can't wait to stuff another one of their world famous frozen bananas into our mouth!
