Ron Howard Tweets Photo of New ‘Arrested Development’ Script

Pardon our skepticism. Since its cancellation nearly a decade ago, there’s been so many rumors about an Arrested Development reunion—whether through a new season, a movie, or a variety show—that it’s become quite easy to dismiss each new possibility as wishful thinking. As some old maxim must go, “I’ll believe it when I see a trailer.” Perhaps mindful of this totally not made-up adage, AD producer/narrator Ron Howard tweeted a photo of the fourth season’s first script, titled simply, “Michael.” He added: “Lots of lines for the narrator!” Which seems to mean that this thing is really, really happening, at least on the level where a script is being physically produced for its actors to read, which should lead to filming and editing and distribution and all of those wonderful things to ensure new episodes, on our computer, as early as 2013. (They’ll be available all at once through Netflix.) After that, we’ll be able to scratch off everything on that list of long-awaited creative lists, pending the release of Dr. Dre’s Detox.
