Arrested Development On The Way For Real

To all you “Arrested Development” doubters out there who have been second-guessing this since 2006, stop it already!

The freakishly anticipated re-launch of the FOX original series is actually happening. Only this time show creator Mitch Hurwitz and is taking it to the instant stream.

To confirm it, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, David Cross and several other “Arrest Development” cast members took the stage at a Netflix-sponsored event in Las Vegas.

At the National Association of Broadcasters convention, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos laid out his plans to release the entire ten-episode fourth season of “Arrested Development” on a single day for subscribers sometime next year.

I wonder how many people will be calling in “sick” that day…

Seriously, if the hype gets any bigger for this, the federal government will have to declare the release date a national holiday called "Bluth Day."

Production will begin this summer. Vulture.com reports that Hurwitz is anxious to take advantage of the all-in-one block structure that Netflix allows for.

"There's something exciting about trying to break the form again," said Hurwitz at the event.

With the large gap between seasons three and four, Hurtwitz had initially planned to attack the reunion in anthology form, with each episode centering on one cast member. But as time went on the aim was redirected into an episode structure similar to the show's original awesome self.

For those of you desperately skimming this article for news on the equally-anticipated movie that has been rumored to follow the season four, sorry… You’ll have to keep waiting. Mum was the word on the movie at the event.

Hey! Stop complaining. You got your season four, didn’t you?
