Conan O’Brien And Andy Richter To Appear On Arrested Development
Fans are already excited about the fact that Arrested development is all set to return on television for its 4th season. Now as a bonus it has been reported that, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter will both appear in Arrested Development‘s hotly anticipated fourth season. Will Arnett revealed this on a recent episode of Conan, when he was called as a guest. “I don’t want to give away too much,” Arnett said slyly, “but let me put it this way: There are a few people on this stage tonight who are a part of [season 4].” Well, if you thought he couldn’t have been more obvious than that, Arnett made things absolutely clear by looking back and forth between O’Brien and Richter. “And I think we know who we are” he then added.
While O’Brien never guest-starred on the comedy during its original run, Richter already has a history with Arrested. In season 3, Conan’s faithful sidekick appeared as himself and his four (fictional) identical brothers, Donnie, Emmett, Chareth, and Rocky. The gag was a reference to Quintuplets, Richter’s canceled Fox sitcom. For those unaware, the show centers on the Bluth family, a formerly wealthy, habitually dysfunctional family, and is presented in a continuous format, incorporating hand-held camera work, narration, archival photos, and historical footage. Ron Howard serves as an executive producer and the series’ uncredited narrator.

Six years after the series had been canceled by Fox, filming for a revived fourth season began on August 7, 2012. The season will consist of between 10 and 13 new episodes, all debuting at the same time on Netflix in early 2013 in the United States, shortly followed by the United Kingdom. Several actors who had recurring roles in the original series are scheduled to reprise their roles in the new season of the show, including Henry Winkler as Barry Zuckerkorn, Mae Whitman as Ann Veal, Scott Baio as Bob Loblaw, Judy Greer as Kitty Sanchez, and Liza Minnelli as Lucille Austero; while new characters will be played by John Slattery, Terry Crews and Isla Fisher.
Throughout its original run, Arrested Development received overwhelming critical acclaim. It is widely regarded as one of the defining comedies of the 2000s (decade) and has been praised by many critics as one of the greatest comedies of all time. In 2007, the show was listed as one of Time magazine’s “100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME”.
