Yesterday it was announced that Arrested Development will be returning with new episodes. I think that is great and fantastic news. I am a little bummed though. Apparently because Will Arnett is finally on a show that did not get canceled after the first 3 episodes there is a chance he might not be as willing to do the show as he was before. Ditto Portia de Rossi who also has a high profile show in the works. No offense to anyone, but you need to have those two to make the show really work. Another downside is that Netflix won the bidding war to stream the shows. What that means is the shows will only be on Netflix. Yep, you are going to have to subscribe to the service to watch. Finally, the news is that despite the announcement and contracts being signed, the soonest the show will start airing is the first part of 2013. Umm, we are in 2011 right now. And the early part of 2013 is the soonest which means the show will have been off the air for 6 years by the time it airs. Kids were born and are in first grade now who never saw the show on the air. Will it even be relevant anymore? Will people to pay to see it?
