'Arrested Development' Netflix Revival: Like the 'Godfather II' of TV Shows?
After all the stops and starts, the alleged returns to TV via Showtime and rumored big-screen movie adaptations, "Arrested Development" creator Mitch Hurwitz is really and truly unleashing new episodes of his beloved 2003-06 Fox comedy series -- 15 of them, to be exact -- in just one short month.
And Entertainment Weekly has the proof, with a new "AD" cover story that includes set visits, interviews with Hurwitz and the cast, and even details of what sounds like a deliciously disturbing scene involving Gob Bluth (Will Arnett); his nephew, George-Michael (Michael Cera); and a wardrobe marked by leopard vests, leather and chains, and "a--less" pants.
Want more? The May 3 issue of EW, which hit newsstands on April 26, features three different "AD" covers; episode pics of the cast -- which also includes Jason Bateman, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Alia Shawkat, Portia de Rossi, and Jeffrey Tambor -- with guest stars like Judy Greer and Isla Fisher; and even more scoop on what the Bluth fam will be up to after seven long years out of our sight.
In the interest of not spoiling things with too many specifics, the new episodes will involve birds, Seth Rogen, a black-eyed Bateman, the return of the stair car, Conan O'Brien, Buster in a gray wig, Kristen Wiig, and Gob in gladiator gear. Oh, and Liza Minnelli's return as Bluth family frienemy Lucille Austero.
