"Arrested Development" creator Mitch Hurwitz announced today that the show will be coming back to television -- five years after it was cancelled. 

Hurwitz said the show will do a "limited" season which will show us what the characters have been up to since the show last aired ... which will then lead right into the planned movie.

There is no official deal in place yet for where or when the show will air.

Have a frozen banana and celebrate!

Never saw the show but for some reason am happy for the cast esp. Bateman. Will make it a point to watch if it does come back.

YES!!! I Hope crazy ass Carl Weathers comes back.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. There’s still plenty of meat on that bone. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you’ve got a stew going.

I really don't think a movie will do that well. I have watched every episode about 5 times and every time I see something new it seems. To have the show as a 1 season deal will be expensive seeing how some of the folks on the show have better careers now.
My hope would be that they come back for a season and do really well and a network pays them well enough to keep the show going.
