Can you taste the happiness?
When the cast of Arrested Development convened at the New Yorker Festival this past Sunday for their “Bluth Family Reunion” panel, it was revealed that the unfortunately short-lived comedy series will be making a return to television. The limited-run of Arrested Development will consist of ten episodes, each one focusing on a particular character and the five years’ worth of events that lead up to where they will find themselves at the beginning of the movie. The show’s creator, Mitch Hurwitz, has already finished the film’s script.
The show has yet to be secured by any television networks, but there is plenty of time and opportunity for the Bluths to find the right home – or model home – before their cinematic debut in 2013.
Since its original run ended in 2006, several cast members have gone onto new heights of fame and success. Jason Bateman is now a bonafide comedic leading man, with major roles in The Change-up, Horrible Bosses, and Paul this year alone. And Michael Cera, who played hilariously awkward son George-Michael Bluth on Arrested Development, has fronted big-time films such as Superbad and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
