Netflix is getting creative with its advertising for the galactically-anticipated re-debut of Arrested Development. Right now, if you search for something “blue” on the Netflix website — either just typing “blue,” or perhaps specifically looking for something with the word in the title, like Blue Velvet or Return to the Blue Lagoon or Mickey Blue Eyes — you’ll note errant bits of blue paint along the side, along with a telltale blue handprint.

The cast of Arrested Development enjoyed another reunion today, this time in front of a room of critics and reporters at the TCA press tour in Pasadena. The Q&A session — which featured creator/executive producer Mitchell Hurwitz along with series stars Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Jessica Walter, Alia Shawkat, and Jeffrey Tambor (David Cross and Tony Hale couldn’t make it) — was rather light on plot detail for the resurrected show, but there were revelations, laughs, and even a peek at a delightful deleted moment. Among the highlights: READ FULL STORY »
Looks like Arrested Development is being supersized. The beloved comedy that is getting a second life on Netflix this spring will expand its fourth season by a few episodes. Netflix confirmed a Deadline report about the additional episodes, but would not specify the exact amount being added to the 10-episode order. This was always a possibility, as Netflix originally said that season 4 will contain “at least” 10 episodes. READ FULL STORY »
It could be the biggest teaming of two forces since GOB and Tobais formed Gobias Industries: Arrested Development and… you? The folks behind the critically acclaimed, gone-too-soon Fox comedy that is being revived on Netflix announced today that they will give away six walk-on roles for “super fans” to make an appearance in the show’s fourth season, which is slated to debut in the spring.

Liza Minnelli will reportedly resume her role of Lucille Austero, the older girlfriend of Buster Bluth (Tony Hale), for Netflix’s new season of Arrested Development, according to TV Guide. During the initial run of the show, Lucille — who suffered from vertigo and shared the same first name as Buster’s manipulative mother (Jessica Walter) — and Buster engaged in an unorthodox romance, simmering with unsettling Oedipal implications.
Netflix has revived Arrested Development for a long-delayed fourth season, scheduled for return next spring, that will consist of at least 10 episodes.
We’re getting ever-so-much-closer to an actual date of the Bluths’ return. Netflix confirmed today that the long-awaited fourth season of beloved cult comedy Arrested Development, which was cancelled by Fox in 2006, will be unveiled next spring. Which means we’ve now narrowed down the release date from a year (2013) to a season (spring 2013!). Final third of March? April? May? First two-thirds of June? We’re coming for you next.

Last fall, it was announced that Arrested Development would be bringing back the whole cast to make new episodes for Netflix, premiering in 2013. As every fan of the show knows, we’ve been teased with more banana stand goodness since the moment the show went off the air in 2006.
But we now have another step in the right direction: Ron Howard tweeted a photo last night that shows someone (presumably showrunner Mitch Hurwitz) in the writers’ room, along with the message “Arrested Development for Netflix. IT’S ALIVE. This is what the writer’s room looks like.”
Jason Bateman also gave an update on Twitter, writing, “Taken at AD mission control, today! All systems are go. Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks. Woo!” along with a photo. READ FULL STORY »
Netflix’s revival of Arrested Development may not premiere until next year, but some innovative artists are honoring the former Fox series. The L.A.-based Gallery 1988 is launching an Arrested-inspired exhibit on June 29. The title? Why, “There’s Always Money in the Banana Stand,” of course. The originals will likely cost between $100 and $2,000. If you don’t buy them, you can look, but no touching! Here’s 9 samples:

Whether you’re a certified dude, a lady with a taste for the finer things, a procedural junkie, a spy fan, or someone who understands “There’s always money in the banana stand,” we present a list of the all that’s worth watching this Turkey Day.

The return of 'Arrested Development': Tony Hale talks Lucille 2 and hopes for an iPad hand -- EXCLUSIVE
Since news broke last week that Netflix officially picked up Arrested Development for a 2013 run, fans have been taking a victory lap around the Internet that the five-year will-they-or-won’t-they revival roller coaster appears to be finished once and for all. EW landed an exclusive chat with Buster Bluth himself, a.k.a. Tony Hale. Of the long wait for Arrested‘s return, Hale laughed, “In this situation, Buster would have been in the hospital medicated.” What else did Hale have to say about everyone’s favorite seal-phobic, over-educated MotherBoy? Will Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli) return? And what was Hale’s favorite Buster moment so far? Keep reading… READ FULL STORY »
Done deal: Netflix is bringing back cult classic Arrested Development.
The Bluth family’s new comedy adventures will be available exclusively through the video service starting in the first half of 2013. Why, that’s like getting unlimited juice.
“After a long hiatus, I’m dying to finally get back to the narrator’s microphone,” said executive producer and series narrator Ron Howard. “Of all the projects we’ve been involved with over the years, we probably get more questions about Mitch Hurtwitz’s brilliant Arrested Development than any other — everyone, ourselves included, seems to feel like the Bluths left the party a bit too soon. Bringing a series back from cancellation almost never happens, but then, Arrested always was about as unconventional as they get, so it seems totally appropriate that this show that broke the mold is smashing it to pieces once again.” READ FULL STORY »
Arrested Development may get another lease on life on the small screen: EW has confirmed that the producers of Arrested Development – the critically-acclaimed but short-lived comedy from Mitchell Hurwitz — are in talks with Showtime and Netflix about airing a limited number of original episodes that will update fans on the Bluth clan.
Hurwitz told attendees at the New Yorker Festival Sunday in New York that he wanted to shoot nine to 10 episodes that would air next fall and catch audiences up on the characters’ lives since the series ended in 2006 on Fox. The episodes would be produced by 20th Century Fox TV, which was responsible for the original single camera series that starred Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, and Portia DeRossi. READ FULL STORY »
