The Fox hit from 2003 to 2006 starring Jason Bateman, Michael Cera and Portia de Rossi is staging a comeback! The cult hit's creator, Mitchell Hurwitz, announced a new spin-off yesterday for Arrested Development at The New Yorker Festival.

According to ABC, Mitchell indicated, “We’re all game.  We’ve hated being coy, but we’ve been trying to put together this ambitious idea.” As for what the ambitious idea specifically entails? The new series will have about nine or 10 episodes focusing on each character in the Bluth family which leads into the first scene of an Arrested Development movie! At that point the extended cast will be reunited.
