Arrested Development season 4 is currently in production, which is so unbelievably cool! After years of hoping and waiting, it's actually happening. The show's producer and narrator Ron Howard has revealed that that we'll be seeing some new characters that will be joining the Bluths in their crazy adventures.
He doesn't give any details on who these characters are, but he promised that they will live up to the quirky cast of characters. Here's what Howard had to say about the highly anticipated return of the series in a recent interview with MTV...
It's great. People stopped believing me when I would say 'I think it's going to happen! I can't guarantee it, but I think it's going to happen!' It really is a thrill. I visited the set last week. It's a blast over there. Mitch Hurwitz has such a remarkable, creative voice. It's the perfect set of actors to bring it to life. I'm so glad it's back. I'm a fan, too. The scripts are hilarious.
Mitch isn't trying to recreate something. It's been away for a while, and part of the fun that Mitch has been mining and exploiting is, what's new to discover about these people? What's delightfully unchanged? He and the writing staff and the actors have a fantastic sense of that. They're pretty brazen, pretty bold and fearless. That's what made the show into something that fans really kept alive.
They're having the greatest time getting together and getting back into it. It's cool and bold and funny, and out there taking chances, just like it always did.
How amazing would it be if this fourth season turns out to be the funniest one yet!? I hope this upcoming fourth season and movie aren't the last we see of these characters. Arrested Development must live on!
