Congratulations to all those who love this show. I know it's a big victory for you. Good to see that fan pressure can make something like this happen. I cheer for your good news. It's tough to get an entire cast back together. It didn't just come off of life support. It was in the ground with a bell tied around it's wrist. Again, congrats. I found the show unwatchable after several attempts. Broad and ridiculous. I get that this is the point, but it's just not my type of that it isn't good.


So happy! Forget marketing, I will virally market everywhere!


I couldnt be happier right now, this is fantastic news!!! Arrested Development is THE best sitcom ever!

How very Joss Whedon/Firefly of them! I am always happy to see something brilliant come off life support and live again. Good for them!
