What are your thoughts and hopes about the upcoming season?August 16, 2012 at 5:52 am #256180
This is a useless thread. Either make an Arrested Development (season 4) thread or post this in the 2012-2013 Guest Acting contenders thread. We don’t need a separate one for each and every guest star.August 16, 2012 at 8:44 am #256181

Thanks for the advice. I’ve fixed itAugust 16, 2012 at 9:14 am #256182
I am positively wet with excitement over the new season. My favorite show of all-time is back.August 16, 2012 at 10:26 am #256183
While it seems safe to assume that the cast will submit in the categories they previously did for the Emmys (Jason Bateman in lead comedy actor, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter and Jeffrey Tambor in supporting), from what I’ve read, the format of the fourth season will be different from the previous three, in that each of the 10 episodes will focus on an individual character, and from my understanding, each cast member might not necessarily appear in every episode. This makes me wonder if they will still submit the way they did before, or if they’ll all go lead, or all go supporting, or all go guest? I hope they submit the way they did before. It would be nice to see them up against Modern Family and the final season of 30 Rock. That would be quite a battle!
With John Slattery appearing in Season 4, part of me wonders if he might be a central character in one of the episodes (there are 9 regular cast members, not 10). Unless they give Henry Winkler an episode, or perhaps have one episode that ties all of the regular cast members together evenly.
Another possibility that someone brought up in another topic is that they might submit in miniseries, since they are only planning on doing a stand-alone series to tie in with the upcoming feature-length movie.
If they submit the way they did before, and if the season isn’t a complete disappointment, I can see Arrested Development easily getting in for Comedy Series, and Jason Bateman having no problem getting back into Lead Comedy Actor despite only getting nominated for the show’s 2nd season (Larry David won’t be eligible next year, Don Cheadle’s nomination could be a one-time thing, and Matt LeBlanc isn’t a complete guarantee to get nominated again, leaving at least one opportunity to sneak back in). I think Will Arnett, the only cast member nominated for their third season, will be able to get into the crowded Supporting Actor category, and Jeffrey Tambor might join him. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was an all-Modern Family/Arrested Development lineup next year. If there was no Modern Family, I could see David Cross and potentially Tony Hale sneaking in as well, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. Jessica Walter should be able to get back into the supporting race, especially since Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara are the only sure things to get nominated again next year. While the guest acting category has never been kind to Arrested Development, I can see one or two nominations for the show there, perhaps a writing nomination or two, maybe even getting back in for directing, an editing nom or two, and maybe again for casting, and you could likely have at least 10 nominations for Arrested Development. I also think that as a one-off season, the Emmys may feel more inclined to award the show in several categories.August 16, 2012 at 2:37 pm #256184
I thought they ditched the “every episode focuses on an individual character” idea?August 16, 2012 at 3:00 pm #256185
I absolutely cannot wait. It’s my favorite show of all-time, and my dream are literally coming true with it being back.August 16, 2012 at 3:07 pm #256186

Oh, I hadn’t heard that. I think ensemble pieces would definitely improve their Emmy chances.August 16, 2012 at 3:26 pm #256187
Last I heard is the episode would likely focus on one character mainly but the other characters would still have bit parts.August 16, 2012 at 3:44 pm #256188
i think its about time i rewatch the whole series.August 16, 2012 at 3:46 pm #256189
Did Netflix submit Lilyhammer this year? (their first original series)
I know Hulu submitted Battleground in one of those short format categories. Would Arrested Development compete as a short format series or can it submit as a comedy series?August 16, 2012 at 4:33 pm #256190

I think we should hold a weekly rewatch of the show and then we all talk about it?August 16, 2012 at 4:37 pm #256191
I rewatch the show when I am bored all the time. Probably watched it 20 times all the way through and I am still finding new jokes.August 16, 2012 at 4:55 pm #256192

haha that would be awesomeAugust 16, 2012 at 6:03 pm #256193
I’m very excited about the fourth season. Although I don’t think it’s the best comedy series of all time (the middling third season prevents that), it certainly deserves to be in the conversation.
I’m concerned for a few reasons, though:
-Running Wilde was a pretty big disappointment.
-The show was amazing DUE to the ensemble aspect. The central character idea sounds like a completely different show.
-It’s been nearly a decade since it premiered. How will they address this within the AD world?
