Holy cats, you guys! This year's New Yorker Festival is really upping its game this year with the announcement that the Best Show Ever is reuniting for a special panel at the three-day event. That's right: the beloved faces (blue and otherwise) of Arrested Development are getting back together, if only for one night.
The October 2 "Bluth Family Reunion" panel will feature Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz, plus castmembers Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter. There has been no word yet on a possible appearance by Bob Loblaw.
While rumors have been swirling for quite some time about a possible Development movie, this is the first time the whole gang has been seen together in years. Tickets for the sure-to-sell out panel go on sale beginning at noon on Wednesday, and are going for $30, though you can bet they'll be popping up on Craiglist for three times that by next week.
Start practicing your celebratory chicken dance now, people!
Other big-name events at the Festival are selling out faster than you can say "Zach Galifianakis talks with Andy Borowitz," but check out the full schedule here, since new events are being added all week.
