Cast, Creators Of ‘Arrested Development’ Announce Plans For New Show, Much-Awaited Movie

To me this is fantastic news and if you are a fan of comedy then you should be happy too.  Whenever someone asks if I like the show ‘Modern Family’ I tell them it’s fine, but I liked it twice as much the first time I saw it – when it was called ‘Arrested Development’.  Arrested Development was a family ensemble comedy that had a perfect cast including Jason Bateman, Michael Cera and Will Arnett.  It was the brainchild of Ron Howard and while many of the jokes were in your face (such as the Chicken Dance, the montage you can watch after the jump), many more were subtle and would be missed if you just had the show on in the background.  The closer you watched the show, the better it was.  I knew it was too good to last.  Well, it’s coming back on both the big and small screen so we can catch up with the family.  All the seasons are available on DVD so I think you should take some time (perhaps Sundays during Vikings games) and get caught up on this funny show.

The Bluth family’s frozen banana stand may be back in business.

At an “Arrested Development” reunion Sunday at the New Yorker Festival, the creators and cast announced plans for a new TV show that spins off the short-lived but critically acclaimed TV show, which went off the air in 2006 after just three seasons. They also discussed more concrete plans for a much-awaited movie.

Creator Mitchell Hurwitz said the spinoff will feature nine or ten episodes focusing on each character and leading up to the movie. The first scene of the movie will be all the characters reunited.

The Fox show, which suffered low ratings despite its rabid fan base, starred Jason Bateman, Michael Cera and Portia de Rossi.
