Fred Armisen always plays Welk, and Kristen Wiig always brings her big forehead and tiny hands as Dooneese, but have you ever seen a sketch with so...

The full cast of Arrested Development reunited Sunday for the first time since FOX cancelled the critically beloved sitcom five years ago — and revealed a bombshell development. While everyone expected to hear news about a long-rumored AD movie, they heard creator Mitchell Hurwitz instead say that the movie would be preceded by a limited-run TV season consisting of nine or 10 episodes, each focusing on one member of the Bluth family and helping to set up the feature film. Hurwitz said the cast had cleared its schedule to shoot the episodes next summer. On Twitter, Will Arnett and...
