Will Arnett Gives ‘Arrested Development’ Season 4 Update
Between now and the Netflix debut of Season 4 of ‘Arrested Development‘ really are amazing times. Though only renewed for ten episodes, fans of the long-adored series are finally getting their wish as new details and updates surface regarding the Bluth family reunion. We already saw a bit of the cast on set from series star Jason Bateman, but what does his brother GOB Will Arnett have to offer? The answer might surprise you…
Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour panel for ‘Up All Night,’ former (and future) ‘Arrested Development’ star Will Arnett gave critics an update on the progress of the revitalized series. Shooting had not yet begun for Arnett, though he did say that creator Mitch Hurwitz had organized shooting around actors’ schedules, including hiatuses and weekends.
With that, Arnett managed to clarify a bit of the structure we’d heard about for the 10-episode season. Early reports claimed that each installment would center on one character of the ‘Arrested Development’ cast, but later comments from Hurwitz muddled the line. Says Arnett of whether or not episodes will be character-centric:
That’s kind of the idea, and then there are bits and pieces of people. It’s going to be interesting. It’s a totally different way to tell the story of these people, characters and relationships that we like.
Arnett also specified that he’d read multiple scripts for the revitalized series, and that he’d been very happy with them. ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 will debut on Netflix in its entirety in 2013.
