It ain't easy being white, and it ain't easy being brown, but it sure is easy to be an 'Arrested Development' fan now that the series is officially set to return for a fourth season on Netflix. We'd seen a few rumblings of the Bluth family gearing up to get back in business, but when will the series actually start shooting, and when will we start seeing footage of the long-awaited reunion?
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...
Salvation, thy name is Bluth. It's been a tremendously long road to getting 'Arrested Development' the reunion it deserves following the miserable 2003 cancellation, and with miles to go, but every glimpse we get seems like banana from heaven. The first set and character pictures have emerged from the fourth season, set to debut on Netflix in 2013, and who do you think is looking for his Gangee?
Jason Bateman is a journeyman, having tasted success in the 1980's as a regular on 'Valerie's Family,' and star of the misconceived 'Teen Wolf Too,' only to reinvent himself in the 21st century as one of the premiere straight men on 'Arrested Development' and in movies like 'Horrible Bosses.' And now he's looking to direct.
While we still all patiently await the debut (or even filming) of Netflix's eventual 'Arrested Development' revival, we'll take any chance we have to see our favorite stars of the Bluth family back together. Now we won't even have to wait until Morgan Spurlock's upcoming documentary 'Mansome' to reunite 'Arrested Development' stars Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, all thanks to two new series from 'Call of Duty!'
Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock has been on a tear as of late, researching the location of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden, exploring the omnipotence of product placement in pop culture, and embracing the geek community that convenes on San Diego for Comic-Con each year. But his latest film asks one of the most difficult questions our society has yet to answer: What makes a man?
There's still a bit of surreality to the idea of 'Arrested Development' coming back from the dead for a ten-episode fourth season on Netflix, even without all the official announcements and hullabaloo. Still, with T's crossed and the whole cast on board, just how long before we see any official movement? How about...now-ish?
From the lips of angels - or in this case Will Arnett - 'Arrested Development' is coming back, and it's coming back soon. Arnett told the Today show that they will start shooting this summer. We've heard about this for a while now, but having real word from one of the stars makes it seem that much realer.
