As overjoyed as we are to be getting a Netflix reunion of 'Arrested Development,' it really burns our banana stands to think that we'll have to wait all the way until spring 2013, even if the network does release them all at once. Thankfully, NBC seems to have beaten them to the punch, reuniting Tony Hale with his former 'Arrested Development' co-star Will Arnett on 'Up All Night'! But will Hale share any scenes with his former hermano?

It's been at least a few weeks since we've had any real 'Arrested Development' scoops to report (seriously, this close to writing about the stair car), but thankfully 'Workaholics' star Adam DeVine is happy to do it for us! One of the earliest things we learned about the upcoming Netflix revival of everyone's favorite cancelled FOX series was that all three stars of Comedy Central's cult comedy 'Workaholics' would make an appearance, but what does their interaction with Michael Bluth reveal about the reunion?
Until we start seeing new footage from the fourth season of 'Arrested Development,' we're going to star treating every casting announcement with holy reverence, right down to the re-appearance of the infamous Bluth family stair-car. So amidst the myriad of former 'Arrested Development' guest stars announced to be returning for the Netflix revival, which is stirring rumors of the long-awaited movie?
Them? For the last few weeks we've been hearing all about how 'Arrested Development' season 4 was bringing back fan favorite characters like Barry Zuckerkorn and Lucille 2 (seriously, we were this close to writing about bringing back the stair car), but what of the new faces? Apart from the 'Workaholics' crew and 'Mad Men's John Slattery, what do pint-size beauty Isla Fisher and chiseled man-mountain Terry Crews have to offer 'Arrested Development' season 4?
In the years since her forgettable turn on 'Arrested Development,' it's been hard not to have fallen for Plant Ann Mae Whitman a bit, given her genre friendly turns as the voice of Katara in 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' or her role opposite 'Arrested' co-star Michael Cera of 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.' Still, with 'Arrested Development' season 4 on its way from Netflix in the spring of 2013, will the writers plant Ann in the new run of episodes, now that she and George Michael are all grown up?
For a new season of 'Arrested Development' that supposedly features a format of highlighting just one of the Bluth family per episode, they sure do seem to be casting a great deal of the classic supporting characters, not that we're complaining! Hollywood icon Liza Minnelli is the latest 'Arrested Development' star to pick up her role for Netflix's upcoming revival, but where has "Lucille Two" been all this time?
Without taking for granted that we've gotten back 'Arrested Development' at all, lately we can't help but wonder when we'd get confirmation on recent rumors that suggested season 4's initial 10-episode order had expanded to 13, and what it might mean for a potential movie. We're also a bit concerned about the news that most episodes wouldn't feature the full cast of characters, but what does series creator Mitch Hurwitz have to say on the matter?
There's no more need to talk nonsense about Bob Loblaw, Barry Zuckerkorn is back! Yet more recurring players of the first three seasons have signed on for Netflix's forthcoming revival of 'Arrested Development' season 4, as Henry Winkler and Scott Baio have signed on to reprise their roles as Bluth family attorney(s) Barry Zuckerkorn and Bob Loblaw. When last we saw the characters however, Michael Bluth had dismissed Barry's services for Bob, so what nonsense could have befallen Bob Loblaw?
For all we've learned and observed about the fourth season of 'Arrested Development' to grace our lives on Netflix Spring 2013, from 'Mad' guest stars to awkward segways, there are always plenty of question marks in the banana stand. Over just three seasons, 'Arrested Development' lined up quite a stable of recurring favorites, celebrity and otherwise, but can they all fit in 10 13 episodes? And which former 'AD' star has just given us a flash they'll be back?
A good man once said that "waiting is the hardest part," but we bet you that man didn't have to wait a full seven years for new episodes of 'Arrested Development!' But if there's one thing that makes the waiting feel less like having a Segway roll over us, it's knowing when it will all be over. Thank G.O.B. that our suffering is finally at an end, as Netflix's 'Arrested Development' season 4 has finally announced its premiere! But when will the banana stand re-open for business?
