Arrested Development: new episodes coming, more movie details

Hurwitz revealed Arrested Development would return for another season, acting as a lead-in to the upcoming film.

“We’re basically hoping to do 9 or 10 episodes, with almost one character per episode,” Hurwitz said at a New Yorker conference reuniting the ensemble cast on stage.

Hurwitz called it “a limited-run series into the movie” but didn’t offer a timeline on when the episodes will air. The episodes explain what the characters have been up to since the show last aired, and several storylines will lead into the planned movie.

Jason Bateman, who played one of the Bluth boys in Arrested Development, recently tweeted: “It’s true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early ’13. VERY excited!|

The screenplay for the film is done, Hurwitz noted, but progress is often slowed by red tape. “We don’t completely own the property, there are business people involved and studios and that kind of thing.”

The project, Hurwitz added, “requires studios to work together that don’t typically work together, film and TV.”

Arrested Development followed the rich Bluth family as they tried to keep relationships together as money problems crippled their lives. Actors in the show included Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Will Arnett and Tony Hale. It won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2004 and a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy (Bateman).
