‘Arrested Development’ production begins with entire cast returning
The new installment of “Arrested Development” for Netflix will begin production August 7, 2012.
Deadline reports that the entire cast of Mitch Hurwitz’s cult Fox series — Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat and Tony Hale — are all in final negotiations and expected to return.
The original producers are on board and Ron Howard will indeed be reprising his role as the series’ narrator. Each of the new episodes follows one member of the Bluth clan, although some episodes may feature multiple characters.
“Arrested Development” will be in production through the fall.
Netflix has indicated that it would make all 10 new episodes available at the same time sometime in 2013 but has not set an exact premiere date yet.
