'Arrested Development' to Return With New TV Season and Movie

Monday, October 03, 2011

"It's true," actor Jason Bateman tweeted on Sunday. "We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early '13. VERY excited!" Bateman was on stage at The New Yorker Festival for a reunion with the cast and creator of "Arrested Development," the much-loved, short-lived sitcom that aired on FOX for three seasons from 2003 to 2006. Mitchell Hurwitz, the show's creator, used the occasion to announce that a long rumored "Arrested Development" movie is in the works, as well as limited-run series telling the story of where the characters have been for the last few years. Dave Itzkoff, culture reporter for The New York Times, was in the audience and reports on the latest.
