Arrested Development begins production today on its brand new episodes, some six years after the show ended production.
Deadline reports all cast members are expected to return: Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat and Tony Hale — are all in final negotiations and expected to return. Ron Howard also is reprising his role as narrator. That’s a pretty rare feat for any cancelled show.
Each of the new episodes follows one member of the Bluth clan, although some episodes may feature multiple characters.
The new season is envisioned as a bridge between the original series and an Arrested Development movie.
Hurwitz has also left the door open to doing an additional season if the initial 10 new episodes prove successful. So yes….
The new eps will premiere in 2013.
