Arrested Development Returns! 14 New Episodes in May, and A Movie on the Way?

The cult comedy Arrested Development was cancelled 6 years ago on Fox, however after the cast reunited in 2011 at the New Yorker Festival, creator and writer Mitchell Hurwitz announced that he was going to write a fourth season of the comedy, to precede a film. Filming began for the fourth season last summer, and it is only now that Hurtwitz has begun to reveal a little about this new season.

Speaking to the Detroit Free Press, Hurwitz said: "The bigger story is the family has fallen apart at the start of our show. They all went their own way, without Michael holding them together, so they're left to their own devices, and they're not the most successful devices... Each individual [episode] kind of depicts what happens in 2006 as the Bluths fled from the law on the Queen Mary [an event which ended the third season]." 

As screen rant notes, judging by the recently released episode titles, it seems that each one will focus on a member of the family, with most characters having 2 episodes dedicated to them. 

Plus, more good news - speaking on the possibility of a movie, Hurwitz told Vulture, "The episodes are an outgrowth of the design of what we hope will be the movie. They precede it. They function as an act one of a movie that we all want to do... The episodes take the audience through the experiences of the characters since the family 'fell apart' and how they're brought together to deal with their new problems." 

So, this entire new series is made for a movie. The chances are looking good to see the Bluth family on the big screen. Watch this space for developing news, Contact Music will keep you posted.
