Fans waiting for the new episodes of Arrested Development to hit Netflix in 2013 can breathe a little easier today because the show's co-executive producer, Dean Lorey, has confirmed that the entire cast will be back for the next season, according to Collider. This means that the movie careers of stars like Michael Cera, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman won't keep them from returning for the new episodes as it was originally feared.
As of right now, these new episodes are in the process of being written, and will be ready to be filmed some time in 2012. However, there is no word yet on how many episodes there will actually be, but Collider is reporting that it will either be 9 or 10. The plan is for these episodes to serve as a prologue for an eventual Arrested Development feature film, but there are still countless details to be worked out before that can happen.
