Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi and series creator Mitch Hurwitz will stop by the Bravo TV show on Thursday, November 7.
"Arrested Development" season 5 is yet to get a greenlight, but the stars are set to reunite on-screen again. The cast of the cult comedy will be the next guest on Bravo TV's "Inside the Actors Studio" for an episode set to air Thursday, November 7 at 8 P.M. ET.
Main cast members Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter are slated to make apperance, but Michael Cera, Tony Hale and David Cross are not scheduled to show up. Series creator Mitch Hurwitz will also sit down for an interview with host James Lipton, who has a recurring role as Warden Stefan Gentles on the sitcom.
Lipton teases the "Arrested Development" stars' apperance on his show via an Instagram video. He performs the Bluth family chicken dance in the short clip.
Ron Howard, who narrates and executive produces "Arrested Development", has said that "everybody wants to do more" episode. He added, "Mitch did initiate the whole thing as the beginning of a kind of mystery that needs to be solved, and somehow or another I'd be shocked if we didn't find a way to solve it and do that." The problem is, "everybody is incredibly busy. There's no timetable. No writing has begun."
Hurwitz said a similar thing when met at the New York TV Festival. "It's not my decision, but it's what I want to do," he admitted. "The reason I'm not just saying, let's go do the series next, is because I'm worried it'll take two years to make all those deals -- a mess of people, a weird tease to all of us and the audience. So my goal is to do a movie for Netflix type thing, and then go into the series."
The fourth season of the revived series premiered on Netflix May 26.
