Bidding War Breaks out over New Season of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

     October 5, 2011


The recent announcement of a new season of Arrested Development just happened a few days ago and a bidding war has already broken out between several prospective buyers looking to snag the rights to the eagerly awaited new episodes of the canceled Fox comedy series. Netflix and Showtime were said to be in the running when the news broke over the weekend. Now Vulture has word that Hulu is entering the mix as well. Personally, I’d like to see the series actually end up on television again to get the maximum audience possible, but if the only buyer is Showtime, then the pay cable service doesn’t exactly make it any easier to watch than if it were on Netflix. Either way, it sounds like fans are going to have to pay money to one of these three services in order to watch new episodes of Arrested Development, but for fans who have been thirsty for more of the Bluth family, I don’t think that will be an issue.
