Arrested Development will likely be back for Season 5 on Netflix. Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos is quoted as expressing certainty that the beloved TV comedy will be back, it's just a matter of when.
"Now the story of a wealthy girl who lost everything, and the one family who had no choice but to help her keep it together. It's Orange is the New Black. Ok, Netflix, that's a pretty genius way to remind us that Orange is the New Black returns this Friday. The only problem is, now I'm torn between watching Arrested Development or bing-watching at least the last few episodes of Orange is the New Black in preparation of Season 2.
He and his banner The Hurwitz Company will officially be creating and producing new comedies for Netflix for at least the next two years. It won’t only be inside jobs though, as Hurwitz will be looking to develop series with other creators in a non-writing capacity, though he would still be an executive producer and consultant.
Valentine's Day isn't for everyone. Whether you’re single, sick of it all, or somewhere in between, finding a way to distract yourself on the overtly lovey-dovey day is a necessity. But we’re not proponents of the mentality that if you’re not in love you must be miserable and bitter instead. It’s silly, and stupid, and a waste of everyone’s time. Plus what sort of monster would encourage you to be unhappy? (Spoiler Alert: not me.)
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Kelly’s list, which begins with the long-awaited fourth season of Arrested Development at #5
The nominations for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced today. As you may have surmised by the title, these awards celebrate excellence in acting as presented by the Screen Actors Guild (aka SAG). This year’s nominations put Behind the Candelabra stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon up against one another, and the same for Top of the Lake’s Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss.
David Cross is guesting on Community next season? Try not to blue yourself over this news, but it’s happening, and I think I speak for all of us when I say, huzzah! The Arrested Development star is Greendale Community-bound, and joins the continuously growing list of guest stars set to appear in the NBC comedy at some point in its upcoming fifth season.
Nothing is official or set in stone yet, so it's probably a bit premature to start celebrating this news, but it sounds like there's a chance Arrested Development will be renewed for another season. At the very least, talks are reportedly in the works to make that happen. Time has been ticking by like FakeBlock since the fourth season debuted back in May.
Spoilers if you still haven't gotten around to watching the fourth season of Arrested Development, or you haven't finished the season! Fakeblock has arrived! Finally, an app that fulfills all of your Fakeblock needs. In an era when internet privacy has become more and more of an issue, the Arrested Development Fakeblock app does absolutely nothing to solve the concern.
This season’s disjointed structure and limited episodic focus was a far more successful way to tell this Bluthian story than I could have imagined, but the finale left me a tad too unfulfilled, and it hinted at the larger story that I wanted to get back into.
Even the offer of one month free isn't enough to stop people from pirating the new season of Arrested Development. Granted, not everyone has access to Netflix, which could explain at least some the pirated copies of the series that have been making their way onto the computers of fans. The series returned for its fourth season on Netflix on Sunday and has reportedly been downloaded more than 100,000 times within the first 24 hours.
Hey, Buster. It's only taken thirteen episodes of the fourth season for the youngest Bluth brother to finally get his chance to shine and it's "Off The Hook." Literally. That's the name of this chapter of Arrested Development. Puns! Something tells me that Mitch Hurwitz doesn't think that playing on words is the lowest form of wit and the show is a solid argument in his favor. Buster's episode has a handful of them. A huge hand-ful. Right? Or is it left?
As we have been saying, the season is ending on a far stronger note than it started, which is basically due to how this particular season has been structured. The first chunk of episodes relied so heavily on set-up, and we had to reach episode 10 or 11 before the big steps started to land with significant (and satisfactory) impact. In this sense, the title of the episode – “It Gets Better” – sums up the season as a whole up to this point.
Much like how the character is completely ignored by her parents, Tobias and Lindsay (Portia de Rossi), Maeby has had to wait a long time to finally get her own episode, but this one has her front and center. And it shows that she hasn’t done too much growing up in the years since the season three finale. It turns out that when we first saw her in the first episode of the season she was actually visiting George Michael’s (Michael Cera) dorm room as a high school student looking for a math tutor.
The old Arrested Development magic appears to be returning now that this experimental fourth season is finished explaining itself over and over, episode after episode. It took a long time for the audience to familiarize itself with the running jokes of this season, and the shows can focus on being funny … which they weren’t for the first half of this season.
