Did somebody say “Wonder”?
The upcoming return of cult comedy Arrested Development on Netflix has added yet another star to its jam packed line-up. Netflix has confirmed that Ben Stiller is set to appear on the series, which will return in May. Stiller will be reprising his role as GOB’s (Will Arnett) magician arch nemesis Tony Wonder. The level of involvement that Stiller’s character will have in the new season has not been revealed.
A long list of other guest stars has been announced in recent weeks. Kristen Wiig, Seth Rogen, Conan O’Brien, John Slattery, Terry Crews and Isla Fisher are among the actors that will be lending their comedic talents to the previously cancelled show.
Arrested Development will be taking on a fairly new format with this new season. The episodes will take place concurrently and will each focus on an individual member of the Bluth family. Creator Mitch Hurwitz says that formatting the season this way is a crucial first step to setting up the storyline for a film. “This is the first act of what we would like to complete in a movie. These are episodes that set that up. One does not work without the other."
