'Arrested Development' movie, limited TV series in the works, says Mitchell Hurwitz

What a delightful day for a “Bluth Family Reunion.” On Sunday afternoon, Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz gathered with his entire cast for their first time together since December 2005 for the hot-ticket panel at the New Yorker Festival. On stage Hurwitz revealed that he was halfway through the movie script he wanted to start shooting next summer. The cast of Bluths are leaving their own schedules free should this dream scenario come to fruition.

Further intriguing news: Hurwitz said his plan is to shoot a limited-run TV series of nine to 10 episodes that would air next fall and catch audiences up on the characters’ lives in the five years since the series ended. While he didn’t want to give up any spoilers, he did reveal one obvious hint of what’s in store for the family Bluth: “They f— everything up.” Lord, let this all happen.

UPDATE: Netflix, Showtime interested in ‘Arrested Development’ limited TV series

        Sal G, thanks for the post but the really good news is that you have plenty of time to watch all the old episodes so you too can be a huge fan.

        Great! I loved him on Family Ties!

    • Carrie

      @troy, u should/ Mitchell Hurwitz and Co. has been talking up this reunion movie for 15 yrs. They have lost all credbility. It’s not happening. You might as well catch up with Bluths on the IFC channel.

    Oh, please, please, PLEASE let this happen. As Kevin Perria said on “Attack of the Show” “There will be more seasons of Jersey Shore than there were of Arrested Development. Be proud, America!”

    • stickittotheman

      Wow, that is a disappointing piece of info. But, not a surprise – lowest common denominator always wins. Beiber has more fans than Bach, et. al.

  • GOB

    That is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. I hope it keeps the same quality of the original series.

  • dozer

    PLEASE GAWD! I’ve seen every episode at least 15 times I cant get enough of the Bluth’s. I laugh at the same lines EVERY TIME! The funniest 3 years of sitcom TV ever.

  • Roger C.

    Awful show, rolling my eyes. No one liked it other than a few internet dorks.

    • scott

      Roger C. – ignorance is bliss. This was one of the best, most intelligent comedies ever produced and anyone with a sense of humor agrees.

      • Roger C.

        It was a terrible show dude.

      • Capt. Obvious

        . . . and THAT’S why you DON’T. RESPOND. to TROLLS!

    • Hutchy

      Douche chilllllll!!!!

    • Dream Out Loud

      I would love to sit down next to you while you watched the old episodes and then find out what exactly you didn’t find hilarious. Is it that you don’t get the jokes or are you just simply an unfunny person?

  • Steven Barnes

    OH GOD NO!

  • Dave

    “COME ON!!!”

  • bob

    i’ll believe it when i see it.
