ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT to Begin Shooting New Season Episodes


According to, the newest season of the comedy ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT has begun pre-production work and will begin filming later this year. Creators behind the series, which was cancelled by the Fox network last year, recently announced that the comedy would return with ten new episodes on Netflix along with a feature film. 

Dan Lorey, co-executive producer of the show confirmed on his blog, "We're really doing this thing. [Series creator] Mitch Hurwitz, [writer] Jim Valley and I are off writing the new season of Arrested to premiere on Netflix in 2013."

Regarding the actors of the show, Lorey continued, "The original cast is back. There are offices and parking spaces. We're shooting this year. I wish I could give more specifics but, for the moment, even the schedule is being kept under wraps." The cast of the comedy includes David Cross, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera and Will Arnett.

Ron Howard, executive producer and narrator of the original series recently described the upcoming episodes as "pretty hilarious" and "outrageous". Said Howard, "I think [Mitch has] got some hilarious idea about where these characters are in the world now, four or five years later, what they've been up to, what their frame of mind is now, and how they relate to each other."
