We all know by now (and are totally excited, I presume) that Arrested Development is coming back with a whole new season exclusively to Netflix. I just re-started my Netflix membership a few weeks ago, so I’m ready to go! All your favourites will be back – Portia de Rossi, Jason Bateman, David Cross, Will Arnett and more. Kristen Wiig will even be making an appearance as a young Lucille Bluth. It’s basically going to be amazing.
Above, the first trailer for the full season – which will be available all in one go from May 26. Why isn’t it May 26 yet? More importantly, how many episodes will there be before we get a taste of the Chicken Dance or until Buster brings back Franklin?
What do you guys think – looking forward to more Arrested Development or has the ship sailed?

Up All Night never did very well in the ratings despite having a pretty phenomenal cast, leading NBC to announce plans a while back to revamp the show into a multi-camera comedy complete with laugh track. Boo! Obviously not feeling that bullshit, Christina Applegate has decided to give it the old heave ho and get the hell out.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Christina Applegate has departed the sophomore comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
“It’s been a great experience working on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction, and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors,” Applegate said in a statement Friday. “Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true, and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family. I will miss the cast, producers and crew and wish them the best always.”
Ahead of its reboot from a single- to multicamera series, Applegate’s departure comes a month after series creator Emily Spivey also parted ways with the second-year comedy. They follow showrunner Tucker Cawley, who was replaced by Nurse Jackie’s Linda Wallem as NBC and studio Universal Television opted to make creative changes to the struggling series that also stars Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph.
Basically, “This show is sinking faster than the Titanic and there aren’t enough lifeboats. Women and children first. Bye, bitches!” They’re still going to continue with Will and Maya, who are comedic geniuses in their own right, but something tells me the upcoming season will be Up All Night‘s last.

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are calling it quits.
The comedic stars, who wed in August 2003, are ending their marriage, a rep for both actors confirms to PEOPLE.
The pair have seen happier times.
In 2005, the Parks and Recreation star, 40, told PEOPLE, “He makes me feel very safe. You can have a lot of adventures if you have someone by your side.”
Arnett, 42, who currently stars on NBC’s Up All Night, said that he “immediately had a talent crush” on Poehler.
“The first time I saw her onstage, I said, ‘I’m gonna marry that girl,’ ” he told PEOPLE in 2009.
The couple are parents to two sons –Archie, 3½, and Abel, 2.
This marriage was the first for Poehler. Arnett was previously married to Penelope Ann Miller.
This is the worst. This is just the absolute worst. This is worse than the time that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson broke up (or whatever). This is worse than the time that Heidi Klum and Seal got a divorce. This is even worse than both times my parents got divorced. Some things are just supposed to be forever, and one of those things was the beautiful, hilarious love between Amy Poehler and Will Arnett.
I guess I’ll see some of you at the funeral tonight. The funeral of True Love. I’ll hold the wake at my house. And by “wake,” I obviously mean the ice cream party.

Here’s some news that is sure to thrill 10% of you!
YOU READ RIGHT! A new season of Arrested Development (get with it! Emily mentioned this last month) is coming to your laptops, Xboxes, and iPads, not to mention your Wiis, Boxees, PS3s, and what-the-heck-ever else, thanks to a new deal with Netflix.
Arrested Development was canceled in 2006; since then, Netflix has been experimenting with original streaming content. And now Netflix has been charged with Arrested Development‘s very resurrection! It’s great news for everybody!
Depending on your television-watching proclivities this is very exciting news—and if you aren’t excited, what is the matter with you?—but nonetheless, try to hold onto your butts. According to some sources, the show won’t “air” until 2013. Blah. But oh, well! Masterpieces take time.

If you’re a fan of Arrested Development, your heart has probably grown weary of repeated promises of a movie. You probably dejectedly watch reruns and cry over the distinct lack of such comedic gold nowadays. It’s ok, I understand. But, if you haven’t heard, there was a remarkable event that took place today at the New Yorker Festival: A Bluth Family Reunion, including the likes of Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter, so basically everybody. Another important guest was Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of the show, and, according to an audience member, he had some important words to say:
So I’m not going to get my hopes up, but … I’m kind of getting my hopes up. Anybody else?

Everyone I know already worships Amy Poehler, but these photos give you another reason. This is Amy out in NYC today, carrying some groceries and entertaining the paparazzi shooting her with funny faces. The kind of remarkable thing about these photos is that homegirl just gave birth ten days ago to her second son, Abel James. She and her husband, Will Arnett, have another son at home, Archie, and you know that those boys are the luckiest kids ever. Amy’s character in Mean Girls was totally accurate about her real life self, she is a cool mom. Also, I kind of like that she’s not anorexic looking right after giving birth. Amy is naturally an extremely tiny person and to see that she’s not one of those celebrities that slims down the second she leaves the hospital is kind of reassuring. You know, as a human.
