Clear your schedule on Sunday, May 26, because after a very very very long wait we’ll be getting new episodes of the cult comedy Arrested Development. You might want to also call in sick on Monday, as Netflix will be releasing all 15 episodes of the new season in one day. Yeah, I said 15. This is the second time that they have upped the episode count since they went into production. Hopefully this means good things- maybe we’ll get lucky enough to another season after this one? All of the regulars (pictured above) are returning along with most of the show’s famed guest stars (Liza Minnelli, Scot Baio, Henry Winkler) and a new crop of awesome guests including John Slattery, Seth Rogen, Isla Fisher, and Terry Crews to name a few.
While on the subject of television shows getting new life, how can I not mention Veronica Mars. With only six days to to go, the beloved show’s movie Kickstarter campaign has raised more than $4.6 million dollars and counting from over 70 thousand backers! The impressive campaign has broken records and I’m glad to admit that I “backed” the film also. It is not often that fans are able to directly impact the future of a canceled television show, and while I didn’t watch the show while it was on (always loved the idea but never had the time), I’m glad that I could help bring it back to life. The series was created by Rob Thomas and starred Kristen Bell, Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring, Francis Capra, Enrico Colantoni, and Ryan Hansen.
