It was confirmed yesterday that Arrested Development is set to return to TV with a mini-season of new episodes before the highly anticipated and much talked about movie will hit theaters. The series’ creator Mitch Hurwitz has confirmed that the comedy, which concluded its three-season run in 2006, will film nine or ten episodes before production on the feature gets underway.
Hurwitz announced the news while attending the cast’s reunion at the New Yorker Festival yesterday. Will Arnett, who played George Bluth II on the show, later confirmed via Twitter: "I'm peeing with @batemanjason at the moment..and we can confirm that we are going to make new AD eps and a movie."
Jason Bateman (Michael Bluth) also added "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!" The mini-season is touted to focus on where the show's characters are now, in order to reacquaint the audience with the series before the impending movie. Despite the highly welcomed confirmations from creator and cast alike, there is currently no deal in place confirming when or where the new episodes will air.
