So, about Fox underestimating its sitcoms... Arrested Development made a splash almost immediately after debuting in 2003, quickly racked up accolades for its subversive, irreverent portrayal of the Bluth family and turning Jason Bateman into a bona fide star. But critical acclaim and a devoted fanbase were barely enough to save the banana stand, much less the show: Fox axed the series in 2006 — which would later prove to be, as Gob would say, a huge mistake. Though creator Mitchell Hurwitz and producer Ron Howard talked about resurrecting the show in some form or another, it wasn’t until 2011 that a plan became clear. Hurwitz and Netflix made a deal to air new episodes in 2013, and the fourth season, which was more experimental in structure and story, premiered on May 26, 2013. Though its latest incarnation was less across-the-board well-received than its predecessors, the door was opened for future small-screen misadventures — and a movie, which Hurwitz has been angling to make for years.
