Scheduled to premiere on Netflix in May is the long-awaited forth season of the Emmy-award winning comedy series Arrested Development. The new series will pick up where the old one left off in 2006 and follow the on-going exploits of the formerly wealthy, habitually dysfunctional Bluth family. Netflix will premiere all fourteen new episodes simultaneously, with a rumored Arrested Development: The Movie to follow. The entire original cast is set to return including Jason Bateman (Michael Bluth), Portia de Rossi (Lindsay Funke), Will Arnett (Gob Bluth), Michael Cera (George Michael Bluth), Alia Shawkat (Maybe Funke), Tony Hale (Buster Bluth), David Cross (Tobias Funke), Jeffrey Tambor (George Bluth), Jessica Walter (Lucille Bluth), and Ron Howard as the Narrator. Returning recurring cast members will include Henry Winkler (Barry Zuckerkorn), Mae Whitman (Ann Veal), Scott Baio (Bob Loblaw), Judy Greer (Kitty Sanchez), Liza Minnelli (Lucille Austero), and Carl Weathers as himself, as well as new cast members John Slattery (Iron Man 2), Terry Crews (The Expendables 2), and Isla Fisher (Bachelorette).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was recently on the set of Adult Swim's Emmy Award-winning show Childrens Hospital and had the rare pleasure of sitting down and speaking with actor Henry Winkler about his involvement in the new Arrested Development series, as well as the legacy of Happy Days. The legendary television actor discussed the new Arrested Development series, his character, what Barry Zuckerkorn has been doing since we last saw him, when Winkler shot his scenes, the possibility of being involved in the proposed film, confirmation that Ron Howard will return as the show's narrator, Howard's "annoying voice," and the genius of series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, as well as the legacy of Happy Days, the impact of playing Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli, and how it has affected Winkler's life and the lives of generations of people around the world.
For years, fans of the cancelled Fox series Arrested Development held out hope that the ensemble comedy would be brought back to life as a feature film. It seemed a quixotic fixation, one of those stories that would show up every few months without ever actually resulting in a Bluth family reunion. Now, six years after Arrested Development last produced new content, it is happening. Just ask series co-executive producer Dean Lorey.
The unspeakably intelligent and consistently hilarious Fox series Arrested Development was cruelly canceled five years ago, cut down in its prime after just three seasons (more like two and a half, actually). Since then, the possibility of a cinematic resurrection for the Bluth family has been like a mirage in the desert for fans of the show, an oasis teasingly glimpsed so, so far off in the distance every few months when a castmember, series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, or some anonymous source claims that Arrested Development will begin production somewhere down the line.
At this point, it's not unreasonable to doubt that we'll ever see Tobias Funke's cutoff jeans on the big screen, but according to Hurwitz, along with stars Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, the movie will indeed happen, along with an abbreviated one-season television revival that would serve as a reintroduction to each individual player in the Bluth saga.
When Fox first cut short the third season and subsequently canceled Arrested Development in 2006, fans placed their fervent hope in the idea that one of the funniest, smartest series ever to grace the idiot box would find new life on a cable network eager to invest in its obvious quality. That didn't come to pass, obviously, and since then, a cinematic adventure for Bluth family has been like a mirage in the desert. Every few months, updates arise, usually claiming that a feature written and directed by series creator Mitchell Hurwitz is all but inevitable, reuniting the cast headlined by Jason Bateman.
Way back in February, Hurwitz commented that Arrested Development could maybe, possibly, hopefully happen soon. Though we've heard not a peep since then, the faithful retain their belief that we could one day see Tobias Funke's cutoffs on the silver screen. A new, wholly unsubstantiated rumor suggests that the possible Arrested Development film's storyline would revolve around a film about the Bluth family. Two films, actually.
Bill Hader is arguably of the funniest actor on Saturday Night Live in the last decade, and he's also building an impressive resume of film appearances, including Superbad, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, Pineapple Express, and the upcoming Paul. Talking to Collider, he revealed that he'll have a role in The Hand Job, a new comedy written by his wife, Maggie Carey. Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza has been attached to star since October, but Hader, in his infinite generosity, revealed that the cast now includes his SNL cohort Andy Samberg, Community star/Childish Gambino Donald Glover, Arrested Development's Alia Shawcat, Connie Britton of Friday Night Lights, along with Mae Whitman and Johnny Simmons, both of whom appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
