Could Arrested Development be making a small-screen comeback? From the tweets coming out of the Arrested Development reunion in New York today, it sounds like there’s a possibility of that. Or at the very least, series creator Mitchell Hurwitz might be trying to make it happen.
There’s been talk of an Arrested Development movie for years. A lot of the fans want it, and from what’s been said by those involved with the show, the cast is on board to do it. While nothing’s been confirmed yet, now it seems there are plans to bring the series back to TV before the movie.
TheFilmStage.com’s Jordan Raup tweeted the following from “The Bluth Family Reunion” Panel at The New Yorker Festival:
?After which he tweeted:
Could it be true? Considering it’s coming from AD creator Mitchell Hurwitz, it’s probably fair to say that at the very least, this is the idea he has in mind for the show’s return. Putting the series back on the air for a mini-season would certainly be a great way to rejuvenate interest before the film, and it would also serve to give the writers the opportunity to build up the story to set up the movie.
The comedy series aired on Fox for three seasons and went off the air in 2006. Five years later, fans are still hoping to see the story revisit and the Bluth family reunited for more of their ridiculous shenanigans. Hopefully we’ll hear more details on this plan/idea and find out whether something is actually in the works, and if Fox or some other network (or pay-cable channel?) is on board to host the series’ return.
