[TV] Arrested Development Return Window Officially Announced
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.09.2013

Netflix has revealed at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour (via TV Line) that Arrested Development will in fact be returning in May. Reports had surfaced last week that the show would be coming on May 4th, but Netflix had quickly denied that date. In addition, creator Mitch Hurwitz and others spoke about the highly-anticipated fourteen-episode run. Check out the highlights:

Hurwitz on whether he thought the show would ever return: "I just always kind of held out hope that this would all work out… We shouldn't be here. I accept that premise."

Hurwitz on the show's format: "The only way we could get everyone together for what we'll call, loosely, an anthology series, was to dedicate each episode to a different character's point of view. That became a fun, entertaining challenge, because we started finding out that the stories would intersect…. So, you'll see a scene in one [episode], and then you'll see a scene again from the other perspective [in another episode] where you'll get all this new information."

Jason Bateman on the advantages of being on Netflix: "Exclusive to the format that Netflix provides for us… you can watch a portion of Michael's episode and then click over to Lucille's episode."

Bateman on the relaunch and potential film: "[The new season is] basically just the first act of what we hope to continue and complete in a movie, which would be Act 2 and Act 3. These [new] episodes set that up. One does not work without the other."

Bateman on the relaunch not being a fourth season: "It was mislabeled early on. There is certainly a satisfying conclusion to these episodes, if for some unfortunate reason the movie does not happen. But [the episodes and the movie] are all meant to work within each other as a hybrid package of Arrested Development stuff."

Hurwitz on all fourteen episodes being available at once: "There is an order that we have put them together to create the maximum number of surprises. If you watch it in the order that we prescribe, you'll get to, say, Episode 4 and realize that's why [a character] did that in Episode 1."

Hurwitz on Michael Cera joining the writing team: "Michael is such a brilliant guy and such a great writer. I really did bring him in because he's such an open guy and wants to learn this other craft… And then suddenly we were very dependent on Michael Cera being in the writers' room. It became clear that [Arrested Development] was like his first language."
