So, the interweb rumour mill has cranked into overdrive, this time with the news that Arrested Development is back! There has long been speculation that an Arrested Development movie was in the pipeline, but now comes the news that the movie is to be preceded by a short season, with one episode following each of the characters, building up to the release of the film.

The news has emerged from a cast reunion at the New Yorker Festival, where series creator Mitch Huwitz made the announcement, which was followed up by the New Yorker Twitter feed stating:¬†“Arrested Development coming back for one more TV season before movie.”

New York Times reporter Dave Itzkoff was also at the Q&A and he tweeted¬†“Mitch Hurwitz says he plans limited Arrested Development series (9-10 eps, 1 character per ep) that would lead into movie.”

And just this morning Jason Bateman has confirmed all the speculation by tweeting about the news himself: “It’s true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early ’13. VERY excited!”

The news is also bound to have the show’s many fans very excited, and counting the days until everything comes together and goes to air.

So, now Arrested Development has been resurrected, there might be hope for Freaks & Geeks yet!
