Well, I’ll be. Looks pretty darn good for longtime fans of the show. Lots of funny callbacks and slightly insidery jokes. Seeing this it makes me think there’s no need for a feature film. Just give us a new season of AD every few years and we can call it…
There’s a new outtake involving Buster and Lucilleover at EW for your viewing pleasure. It nearly split my sides open. Sadly, the clip isn’t embeddable, so you’ll just have to hop over there to watch it. I can’t wait for these episodes to come out and…
From Flavorwire: “Mitch Hurwitz told the crowd at an event in Las Vegas yesterday that the entire ten-episode season will premiere at the same time on Watch Instantly, in 2013, for our Bluth-bingeing pleasure. He also mentioned that he’d be happy to go back to Netflix for subsequent seasons.”
It’d be quite the treat to have new seasons of Arrested Development just drop onto Netflix all at once every year and better that it would be a genuine labor of love for the cast and crew, since most of them have plenty going on. Even better news, according to Vulture, was the revelation that Bob Loblaw would make a guest appearance in the upcoming season.
Everybody is excited that Arrested Development is coming back for another season and a movie. It’ll be great to have all the Bluths back in our lives. Unfortunately, one member hasn’t been so lucky on the reunion front — the illegitimate son of George Oscar Bluth Jr. and four-time student body president, Steve Holt!
As with many online movements, the impetus to get Steve Holt! back on television started on Reddit. Amid the clamor for the show’s fourth season, the online community’s Arrested Development sub-group noticed that Justin Grant Wade, the actor who played Steve Holt, had not been contacted about the reprisal. While Wade played a minor character on Arrested Development, in a show awash in A-listers spouting catchphrases and one-liners, Steve Holt, the impressively well-meaning yet knuckleheaded high school jock, managed to stand out and develop a fanbase of his own. So it’s no surprise that his absence in the media blitz was noticed.
Helpful fans took a page out of Steve Holt’s student government run and started an online campaign to bring back everyone’s favorite walking catchphrase. There’s a Save Steve Holt website, blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account where the campaign is gaining some traction with the hashtag #savesteveholt. Need a few more facts about your candidate? You can watch an interview with Wade here. Otherwise, get to hashtagging or just walking around shouting Steve Holt!
There’s something wonderful about this. Steve Holt couldn’t have appeared in more than a few episodes and really didn’t say much beyond shouting “Steve Holt!” while thrusting his arms in the air, but it’s one of the smaller details that made Arrested Development so great.
Hopefully, he gets brought back in for the movie or an episode for a smallish role. This is much more important than Kony 2012.
