Arrested Development season 4 ended on a pretty big cliffhanger. It was a bold move by creator Mitch Hurwitz because there was no guarantee the show, which had been off the air for seven years, would reconnect with audiences. Especially since the entire structure was radically different. But it did. Season 4 of Arrested Development was a big hit for Netflix and everyone wanted to bring it back, as long as Hurwitz had an idea.
The question became, would he make a movie like he had originally said years ago? Or would the show simply come back for another season on Netflix? Though nothing has been decided on legally, Hurwitz has finally made his decision. He’s writing an Arrested Development movie right now and hopes to do a fifth season after that. Read More »

So far we’ve had plenty of reasons to look forward to seeing the Bluths get back together for Season 4 of Arrested Development. But now it turns out that the long-awaited reunion wasn’t actually much of a reunion at all.
Due to scheduling issues, Mitch Hurwitz admits, some scenes featuring multiple characters were actually shot at totally different times, with the actors’ performances edited together in post-production. The entire cast was only on set together for a total of two days. We won’t know until the new episodes hit this weekend how that method actually worked out for them, but it’s a little worrisome to say the least. Hit the jump to read Hurwitz’ comments.
