Season 4 of Arrested Develepmont confirmed as movie lead-inPosted 11:34 am on Friday, September 7th, 2012 by Narvin Seegoolam
Recently, Arrested Development series creator Mitch Hurwitz, sat down with Vulture to discuss the upcoming and highly anticipated 4th season of the series. About a year ago is when it was unveiled that there would be a 4th season and fans rejoiced immensely. Though, since then there hasn’t been much news about the series until now.
With the new season hitting Netflix in Sring 2013, many are worried that this will finally be the end that we see of the Bluths. Quite the contrary. Here’s what Mitch said:
The episodes are an outgrowth of the design of what we hope will be the movie. They precede it. They function as an act one of a movie that we all want to do, but haven’t ‘sold’ yet. The episodes take the audience through the experiences of the characters since the family ‘fell apart’ and how they’re brought together to deal with their new problems. I would give you a hint as to what those problems are, but, really, why rob the fans of being disappointed when they see it on Netflix.
So there is hope of a movie! Obviously, it seems that it hasn’t come to fruition as of yet, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. In regards to Netflix, it was originally planned to have 10 episodes, but there is speculation that it has broadened to 13 episodes. David Cross (Tobias) stated this when he spoke with Rolling Stone recently.
I think it’s going to be 13 episodes, not 10. There’s too much story. Some characters will have two-parters. Everybody sort of participates, sometimes in a bigger way and sometimes in a tiny little thread that goes through everybody else’s stories.
Mitch commented on the potential of an expanded season as well
Our initial order is for ten, but the beauty of Netflix is that we theoretically have an opportunity to provide more material for them. We’re definitely shooting some special material just for them. But their whole outlook completely mirrors the ambitions of this show. [Netflix chief content officer] Ted Sarandos and I have really spent a lot of time finding the ideal way to tailor the show to their platform and I think we have something that embraces the new medium.
It seems that things keep looking better and better for the 4th season. I’m sure that many others are just as excited as I am too. Look for it on Netlix in Spring 2013.
