'Arrested Development' Reunion! ...in a Sense

Limbs, parental love, that thing you cherished that you let go to see if it was always yours or if it was never meant to be: when some things go, no matter how beautiful, they're gone for good, and you have to accept that. And while it's looking more and more like our beloved Arrested Development is going to belong to this tragic category, all hope for a television reunion is not lost. Sort of. According to The Hollywood Reporter, AD creator Mitch Hurtwitz has brought his former colleagues Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Henry Winkler on to the voice cast of his new animated comedy Sit Down, Shut Up. Also, some other decent people:

"Sit Down," from Tantamount, Sony and Granada, centers on staff members at a high school who are preoccupied with their own needs and agendas, which means the students come second. Fox greenlighted a table read of "Sit Down," based on the live-action Australian series, last month.

Also joining the voice cast are Cheri Oteri, Will Forte, Regina King, Nick Kroll, Tom Kenny and Maria Bamford.

So even if we never get that Arrested Development movie, at least we can take some solace in this, a show we'll probably enjoy but also complain about being worse than its predecessor (see case of The Office v. Extras).
