so that's pretty much it for Arrested Development, then
Things were looking good on the Showtime front, but now creator / showrunner Mitch Hurwitz has decided he won't be returning
. Showtime had said previously that any deal hinged on Hurwitz remaining. Episodes without Hurwitz's involvment are not just unlikely but also probably unnecessary. The prospect of new episodes has always been a nice thought, but that Friday night block in February felt so final, and offered enough closure, that I'm now mostly fine with the show's demise. Still sucks, yeah, but it was great while it lasted.
