“Arrested Development” to premiere spring 2013 and have “at least” 10 episodes

When you ask, you shall receive. And we asked really nicely that David Cross’s claims about the fourth season of “Arrested Development” getting 13 episodes be a reality.

Well, it turns out he was telling the truth. The Huffington Post reached out to an unnamed Netflix spokesperson who not only gave the site a tentative release date but also confirmation that there could be more than 10 episodes this season.

“According to a spokesperson for Netflix, Season 4 will arrive in spring. Netflix still hasn’t released an exact date for the return of the Bluth clan, but we’re one step closer to knowing when we’ll be able to taste the happy,” HuffPo writes. “Another interesting tidbit: According to Netflix, the episode order could grow beyond the 10 installments the company originally ordered.”

That aligns with what Cross teased. He claimed that the season has flowed over the planned 10-episode order because there was simply too much of the Bluth’s story to tell.

“I think it’s going to be 13 episodes, not 10. There’s too much story,” he told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. “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.”

Beyond that, it’s exciting to have a tentative “spring 2013” release date to mark in our calendars. The plan is still to release the entire fourth season at once on Netflix to give fans a chance to go back and rewatch the episodes and find all of their easter eggs. No word yet on whether season four will be followed up with another season or with a movie.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
