Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz announced at The New Yorker Festival Sunday that the sitcom will return to television for one abbreviated season.
The series will focus on what the characters have been doing since the show was canceled in 2006. The new season will serve as the precursor to an Arrested Development movie, which has been kicking around for years.

Shortly after the The New Yorker panel -- first reported by TVLine.com -- Jason Bateman tweeted: "It's true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie. Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early '13. VERY excited!"
The show premiered in 2003, and was cancelled after only three seasons despite its cult following.
