After six years of teasing us with talk of an Arrested Development reunion, Mitch Hurwitz and Company are finally filming the new season and the movie. While the process took so long that even the cast, at times, developed an “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude towards the project, filming of the new season of AD is finally underway and there are photos to prove it.
With any luck, the new series will be arriving on Netflix sometime in 2013, but now‘s the time to dust off those old Arrested Development DVDs to rewatch the show start-to-finish because the new season will be overflowing with in-jokes and callbacks, and it’ll benefit you to have the first three seasons fresh in your head. With that in mind, we bring you a collection of obscure jokes, references, and hidden bits of foreshadowing sprinkled throughout Arrested Development’s three-season run. The show’s so dense and riddled with intricate gags that I’m sure there are millions I missed here, so feel free to share them in the comments! And feel free to yell at me in the comments section for missing your favorite hidden jokes too! Remember: this is the Internet, and manners go out the window.
