David Cross Says New 'Arrested Development' Season Has Been Extended From 10 To 13 Episodes | The Playlist
When first announced, the plan was for ten episodes, each focusing on a major character from the show, but in an interview with Rolling Stone, David Cross, who plays our favorite never-nude Tobias on the show, has revealed that the season seems to have extended to thirteen. The actor tells the magazine "I think it's going to be 13 episodes, not 10. There's too much story. Some characters will have two-parters. Everybody sort of participates, sometimes in a bigger way and sometimes in a tiny little thread that goes through everybody else's stories."

Cross also thinks that the new structure -- focusing on one character per episode, or indeed per two episodes -- isn't going to mean that the show is giving up on the fiendish plotting and meta-humor that won it its fans in the first place. "It's so layered," the comic says. "It's really audacious and amazing. I think a lot of people will miss the work that is involved, the story, the Venn diagrams that are being created, the domino effect that characters have with each other in their various episodes. I know what he's doing, and this has never been done on a TV show like this. This makes Lost look like a Spalding Gray monologue. You'll have to watch each episode more than once."
Mitch Hurwitz Says 'Arrested Development' Episodes Will Be "Act One" Of The Movie | The Playlist
"The episodes are an outgrowth of the design of what we hope will be the movie. They precede it. They function as an act one of a movie that we all want to do, but haven't 'sold' yet," Hurwitz told Vulture. "The episodes take the audience through the experiences of the characters since the family 'fell apart' and how they're brought together to deal with their new problems. I would give you a hint as to what those problems are, but, really, why rob the fans of being disappointed when they see it on Netflix."
"I actually think the strategy for release is up in the air. I know Netflix at one point was talking about streaming them all at once, because that's how they've done it with other shows, and it's their choice. I know it'll be in the spring of 2013, or what the Mayans would call the spring of '1.' But I just love the opportunity we have to be creative with every part of this, from the concept to the delivery," Hurwitz said. "We're trying to embrace both the obstacles, like lack of cast at our disposal, and the advantages — storytelling freedom, lack of commercials — and it's just great to be part of something that will hopefully become another option for original scripted material."
Her? Mae Whitman Confirms She's Returning As Ann/Egg In 'Arrested Development' Season 4 | The Playlist
Currently doing the rounds for "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," Mae Whitman has assured fans she'll be back as the buttoned-up Ann Veal. Awesome. "I've always been like 'Oh I don't want to give anything away,' but I definitely, definitely wouldn't ever let this chance go by without being a part of it," Whitman told Hollywood. "I told Mitch [Hurwitz] that I would stand outside the sound stage until he would let me just walk through the background or something."
And in case there was any doubt about her involvment: "I would say yes, you can definitely expect to find a little bit of Ann hiding in the background somewhere, at least."
