The family that’s never ever even seen a chicken is back on set.
Bluth fans rejoiced when Mitchell Hurwitz announced the show would return on Netflix for 10 episodes and a feature film. There apparently were more episodes in the banana stand, and those episodes reportedly will begin shooting today. Taste the happy, Michael!
Before you do anything else, put on a Gene Parmesan disguise and remind yourself of the 20 best recurring gags and inside jokes across the show’s three glorious seasons.
Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva (Nellie? Like Tobias?) had the exclusive:
The new installment of Arrested Development for Netflix will begin production tomorrow. I’ve learned that the entire cast of Mitch Hurwitz’s cult Fox series — Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat and Tony Hale — are all in final negotiations and expected to return. The original’s producers Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox TV are behind the sequel, with Hurwitz, Troy Miller and Imagine’s Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo set to executive produce the new episodes. Howard also is reprising his role as the series’ narrator. Each of the new episodes follows one member of the Bluth clan, although some episodes may feature multiple characters. Arrested Development will be in production through the fall.
The entire season will drop simultaneously on Netflix in 2013.Neetzan @ Gawker]
