YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! A resounding cheer of joy is heard around the world as we learn that the whole cast of Arrested Development is confirmed for the new season. That means Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jeffrey Tambor, David Cross, Michael Cera, Portia De Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat and Jessica Walter.

Writer Dean Lorey tells us via his blog that the new season of AD will premiere sometime in 2013 with 10 episodes exclusively airing on Netflix.

“We’re really doing this thing.  Mitch Hurwitz, Jim Vallely and I are off writing the new season of ARRESTED to premiere on Netflix in 2013.  The original cast is back.  There are offices and parking spaces.  We’re shooting this year.  I wish I could give more specifics but, for the moment, even the schedule is being kept under wraps.  But it’s happening and it’s great to be back with my pals from the show.  More later as it becomes okay to release further details…”

The new season of Arrested Development will act as a sort of gateway into the movie that will follow the end of the upcoming season. I can’t wait to see what the Bluths have been up to for the past 7-8 years, because I’m betting they’ve gotten into some pretty weird shit.



  1. Absolutely fantastic news. Arguably one of the best comedies made gets another shot. Really glad it’s a new season and not just a 90 minute film!
