Prepare to chicken dance, Arrested Development: arguably the funniest, most intelligent sitcom in the history of television is likely heading back to the air.

At a New Yorker Festival event yesterday, series creator Mitch Hurwitz said he hopes to “do a limited-run series into the movie,” where the show would come back for approximately 9-10 episodes, with each focusing on just one character and updating fans on his/her life over the five years since the series went off the air.

These episodes would then lead into the wildly-anticipated Arrested Development film.

Nothing is official yet, but Hurwitz said he hopes to bring the show back next fall.

Let’s all celebrate with a meal of frozen bananas and a call to Steve Holt, shall we? Steve Holt!
