Practice your chicken dance–”Arrested Development” is coming back to television. In a news release immediately filed under, “Wow, that rarely happens” and “Uh oh, I think I just made a mess in my pants,” the show’s creator, Mitchell Hurwitz, revealed that the brilliant oddball comedy would return for one more season with a nine or 10 episode slate of shows leading up to the highly anticipated “Arrested Development” movie.
Understandably, skeptics circled last night after the news surfaced about the series that was canceled in 2006, but the men behind the Bluths said it was true: “I’m peeing with @batemanjason at the moment,” Will Arnett wrote on Twitter, “and we can confirm that we are going to make new AD eps and a movie.” And you can’t question the veracity of a statement made by a guy who’s peeing with his costar. Jason Bateman followed: “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!”
Important instructions follow.
