Creator Mitch Hurwitz Discusses ‘Arrested Development’

    Six years and an infinite number of rumors later, Arrested Development is finally, truly, officially coming back. Creator Mitch Hurwitz recently spoke to Vulture in his first interview since filming began last month. Hurwitz was quite tight-lipped about story details, but he did comment on the general attitude and emotions surrounding the project. “Everyone involved was kind of dumbstruck by it,” he says. “It really wasn’t supposed to happen in a way; shows don’t ‘come back.’ And this was the moment we realized it had.”

    As far as the future of the show, Hurwitz notes, “our intial order is for ten, but the beauty of Netflix is that we theoretically have an opportunity to provide more material for them…. 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.” Arrested Development’s new season is slated to premiere on Netflix next year. [Vulture]
