"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!

COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!!!!!!!!!! Best show ever. Clearly the network is looking back saying "I've made a huge mistake'

If it happens, I bet it's gonna be disappointing. Running Wilde wasn't really funny and Hurwitz didn't show us any other quality movie/serie. Way to crush the epicness Arrested Development was.

HALLELUJAH!!!!!
The BEST and most clever show ever! I saw a comment "Great idea, make a movie out of a show that bombed". You are obviously not a fan. The show's humor is a little too smart for most people. Go and watch your Two and a Half Men and be happy with your Joke/ Punchline (heard in every single sitcom since creation) and leave creative humor to those who enjoy it.

Never watched the show personally, but I know what it's like to have a show cancelled that you absolutely loved, so happy for the AD fans.
