"Arrested Development" Is Dead
Variety reports that the show's creator Mitch Hurwitz has put the kibosh on bringing the series back via Showtime. The main reason? Money, apparently. Hurwitz says he'd be glad to make a feature film, so maybe we haven't seen the last of the Bluths. Frankly, with the vast majority of good shows continuing long after their sell-by date, any show that maintains its quality for three years and then calls it a day is nothing to be mourned, especially for a sitcom. Three years for I'll Fly Away or Arrested Development or Once & Again? Wonderful. One year for Freaks & Geeks? Now that's a crime.
