But 10 days after the debut of 15 new "Arrested Development" episodes on Netflix, Hurwitz still isn't sure where he or the show is going from here. "My hope was and is that we would do a theatrical movie," Hurwitz said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday. "This is all complicated by the fact that there are existing rights.

You might think that Mitchell Hurwitz, the creative mastermind behind the oddball cult comedy "Arrested Development," would be overjoyed to hear about the crowds thronging the Bluth's Original Frozen Banana Stands popping up across the country. But late last week, just days after completing the 15 new "Arrested Development" episodes that will debut on Netflix Sunday, Hurwitz was feeling a little overwhelmed.

“Arrested Development” fans, the wait is (almost) over: The cult favorite will make its highly anticipated return next spring with at least 10 episodes - possibly more.

Rumors of an “Arrested Development” revival have surfaced repeatedly ever since the critically beloved but but ratings-challenged sitcom was canceled by Fox in 2006.
