    I'll believe it when I see it, but seems to be somewhat breaking news "http://au.chortle.com/news/2011/10/03/12952/arrested_development_to_return"

    After years of reading "Yeah, Mitch Hurwitz is writing it and we're all going to be in it", this actually seems like the real deal to me. However, I wonder how they'll work around Will Arnett's schedule (assuming his new show is still on next season) if they're shooting in the fall.

    I would have liked to see this go to Showtime or HBO.

    As that USA TODAY article mentions, the 9-10 episode season will focus upon one specific character per episode, which would still let Arnett and Bateman keep their respective day jobs, scheduling-wise. Different from the previous seasons, but enough to shake it up a bit, perhaps. As much as I love the show, I never really wanted the movie to come to fruition. I never thought the series' strengths would translate well to a film, nor did I ever need any closure beyond the series' end. That being said, I still can't help but feel giddy at the idea of another run of episodes coming out, even if using a slightly different format than before.

    Anything that brings this group back together is fantastic news to me. I was excited at the prospect of them just doing a movie, but 10 episodes of a TV show leading up to that......I'm counting down the days. :tu:
