'Arrested Development': What Hollywood Is Saying
Famous fans including Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Erika Christensen, along with star Tony Hale and executive producer Ron Howard, shared their enthusiasm for the return of the beloved series.
It seems that people in Hollywood were just as anxious about the return of Arrested Development as fans of the cult favorite.
Many bold-faced names took to Twitter to share their enthusiasm for the revived series, which debuted 15 new episodes Sunday on Netflix.
The show, which originally aired from 2003-06 on Fox, featured the return of all the original castmembers, along with a slew of A-list guest stars including Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig and Ben Stiller.
Among those tweeting about the show were star Tony Hale and executive producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (who also have cameos), along with Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson and How I Met Your Mother creator Carter Bays.

I'm reading recaps of people who watched ALL of #ArrestedDevelopment in one sitting. They sound like crazy coke heads. I'm watching slowly!
Twitches! @marcmaron's new tv program is terrific! Yeah, yeah, #ArrestedDevelopment on #Netfix is bitchin-cool, but IFC's got a winner, too.

Not sure how believable it is to see the #MadMen gang watching Arrested Development on Netflix
Seems like #ArrestedDevelopment needs to be binge watched, what with all the call-backs and call-forwards. Plus I can't stop watching.
