Get ready to do the chicken dance, ‘Arrested Development’ is officially returning for a fifth season

Though it’s been in talks for a long time now, it’s finally official: Arrested Development is returning for a fifth season. The entire cast has signed on along with creator Mitchell Hurwitz, but it’s not clear if they will be able to avoid scheduling conflicts which hampered the fourth season. I personally enjoyed the fourth season, but do agree with critics who felt the reboot lacked the original’s chemistry in part because the cast were not all together for the majority of the episodes. Let’s hope they can avoid that huge little mistake.

TBS & TNT had their upfronts this week, and there’s a ton of news:

The outtakes from Melissa McCarthy’s Spicey sketch this week are actually funnier than the sketch itself. 

Here is the history of David S. Pumpkins because that’s important.

Twin Peaks is returning on Sunday, so everyone is busy writing about it:

So the Roseanne reboot that is, in fact, happening at ABC will feature both Beckys. Oh, and Dan is alive after all.

If you just can’t take any more of the news, over the next 17 days, Twitch will be streaming every episode of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.

David Letterman will receive the 2017 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, finally.

You people really need to stop being so awful to the cast of The Walking Dead on social media.

Here’s your first glimpse of Star Trek: Discovery.

“I think we’re fine in terms of the amount of women who are behind the camera, in front of the camera,” said the man who just cancelled a show called 2 Broke Girls just ’cause.  OK DUDE.

Hey, conservatives, ABC cancelled Last Man Standing because they decided to end comedies on Friday nights, not because of Trump. (Although if they did cancel it because of Trump, I’d be fine with that.)

ABC’s Inhumans is not the first incarnation of the Marvel franchise.

    1. Honestly, I haven’t had time. Hopefully once summer finally gets here, I’ll get a chance to check it out. I’ve heard mixed things about it, and am very curious.
