I saw this report today and my heart grew three sizes and felt a little lighter. The Arrested Development reunion seems to still be moving right along. Yay! This is the best part:
[Series creator Mitch Hurwitz] also revealed that the new episodes would not, as suggested earlier, be self-contained stories focusing on reintroducing each individual character but would rather be “more like the old show again.” To that end he also obliged a suggestion that tertiary characters like Scott Baio’s Bob Loblaw should return, saying, “It’s kind of a one-joke thing. But if you guys don’t mind bringing it back, we’ll give it to you.”
I choose to still believe that the Arrested Development reunion will be everything we hope for and more.
