Among the tidbits Hurwitz teased/explained:

  • All 10 episodes of season four will be released on the same day, some time in 2013.
  • Due to this plan, changes will likely be made to the original concept of each new episode only bringing fans up to speed on one character at a time. "That is now kind of evolving into becoming more like the old show again," Hurwitz told reporters.
  • Production will begin this summer.
  • Hurwitz is open to to airing further seasons in this format: "We would love this to be the first first of many visits."
  • Bob Loblaw will return!
