Pretty soon we'll be hearing those sweet, sweet words from Ron Howard once again, as the show's creator Mitchell Hurwitz announced at the New Yorker festival on Sunday that, in addition to that movie he keeps promising, he's also going to make nine or ten new episodes of the cult series (Netflix and Showtime are reportedly in talks to nab the short-lived revival of the show.) Hurwitz, who was joined by the entire, chicken-dancing cast during the panel, said each of the new episodes (which are expected to air sometime next year - hopefully it doesn't clash with Motherboy) will center around a member of the Bluth clan, and see what they've been up to since the show got unjustly canceled. So while we can't wait to see what kind of tricks Gob has up his sleeve (THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!) or if Maebe ever followed through with one of her proposals ("Marry me!"), here's some other characters we hope to see again. Almost as much as we hope to see this damn thing come to fruition.
Steve Holt: "STEVE HOLT!"
Mrs. Featherbottom: Sure, this is technically Analrapist Tobias Funke, but s/he sure does know how to whip up a good banger in the mouth.
Annyong: Hello. He's going to be the one to drink all the juice with Buster. It's going to be off the hook.
Bob Loblaw: We're not here to talk nonsense to Bob Loblaw. After all, this is a lawyer who handles a variety of cases, including identity theft (cash only). Plus he doesn't update Bob Loblaw's Law Blog nearly enough.
Franklin: This puppet speaks the truth, even if Whitey wasn't ready to hear it. "I don't want no part of your tight ass country club, ya freak bitch!"
Carl Weathers: The man enjoys Burger King, stew, and has a knack for saving money. Plus, it's Carl f***in' Weathers, man.
Wife of Gob: It would be awesome to see Will Arnett and real-life wife Amy Poehler work together again, but it would be even more awesome if we finally learned what her name is. (It's not Usarmy, go figure.)
Mrs. Veal: She still needs to be introduced to the secular world, after all.
