“….Hulu has joined the rumored bidding war against Netflix and Showtime to get the rights to broadcast the show’s new episodes, according to a new report from Vulture.
The new Arrested Development episodes were announced at The New Yorker Festival. The show will work as a preamble to the upcoming Arrested Development movie, explained Mitch Hurwitz, the show’s creator. Each episode will focus on one character, setting up the context for their storyline in the movie.
Hulu seems like a logical home for the new episodes. Vulture cited sources saying Arrested Development was unlikely to return to Fox — which cancelled the show in 2006 — or its sister networks. Hulu, on the other hand, has racked up a ton of impressions and views on its own catalog of old Arrested Development clips and episodes.)
