You know what I was thinking? It’s been like eight months since we’ve read any anticipatory slobbering for the fourth season and full-length movie of cult classic sitcom Arrested Development. That doesn’t seem right. Did Netflix kill the deal or something? We saw earlier this year that the whole cast was confirmed, and we were told we’d have to wait till spring of 2013. But since then, the buzz has been perilously scarce.
We would never just make up news about the imminent and triumphant return of Arrested Development, of course. We take the series very seriously. We have a friend who won an Arrested Development trivia contest in costume as Franklin, Gob’s black puppet, and we were proud—that’s how seriously we take Arrested Development. Don’t worry: our friend is black, too, so it wasn’t weird. For fuck’s sake, though, are they gonna leak some shit about this movie or—god dammit I’m dizzy with rage.
Please don’t even mention this so-called “news” from yesterday that a guy from Comedy Central's Workaholics is going to have a cameo in the fourth season. One scene, out of ten whole episodes? Michael Bluth has trouble at an airport? THAT TELLS ME NOTHING. I’m sorry, I won’t be happy until I’ve read the full scripts and completely ruined each meta-narrative plot thread for myself. I thought you were better than this, Hurwitz.
