Like all Arrested Development fanatics, I was pretty much devastated when my darling, darling show went off the air. Fox Networks played terrible games with my heart, and I still haven't forgiven them for it.
Recently, though, the skies opened up and rays of beautiful sunshiney news came through the clouds: NEW EPISODES!!!
That's right, Bluth fans. Despite Fox's determination to kill one of the greatest things that ever happened to TV, it's been confirmed that there will be ten brand new Arrested Development episodes, all released at once on Netflix sometime in May. Though we don't know the exact date, it's been widely speculated that it will be May 4th.
That makes today a very special day for those of us waiting for more AD action. Starting today, if you watched one episode of Arrested Development every day, you would finish the series on the 3rd, meaning you could move seamlessly from one era of dysfunctional family fun to the next. Of course, this assumes it is possible to only watch one episode of Arrested Development at a time, which scientists contend is a biological impossibility.
As if the prospect of new episodes wasn't awesome enough, Jason Bateman has basically confirmed that the rumored Arrested Development movie is finally in the works. One can only hope that Tobias is able to hide his thunder on the big screen.
Whether or not you do the one-a-day challenge (which, again, may be injurious to your health), you can look forward to some new Arrested Development soon. And remember, kids...
