Will "Arrested Development" or won't "Arrested Development" be made into a movie? Although creator Mitch Hurwitz revealed a year ago that the revived series would be made into a movie, fans are starting to have their doubts.

Since filming began on season four of "Arrested Development," talk of moving it to the big screen has simmered down. Although fans are happy that the once cancelled Fox show will be making its way to Netflix for a 10 episode (rumored 13) new season, the Bluth family followers want more...and that means the movie they were promised.

Hurwitz doesn't want fans to 'blue' themselves. The creator spoke with Vulture and revealed exactly what fans wanted to hear...sort of.

"The episodes are an outgrowth of the design of what we hope will be the movie," Hurwitz explained. "They precede it. They function as an act one of a movie that we all want to do, but haven't 'sold' yet."

So, the good news is that the cast and crew want to do an "Arrested Development" movie, but it's not one hundred percent set in stone. Fans will have to take what they can get for now!

Other than a movie update, Hurwitz did dish on some exciting season four details.

The new season will show viewers what Michael and the gang have been up to since the Bluth family "fell apart." According to Hurwitz, the new season will highlight how the Bluth's are brought together "to deal with their new problems." 

So what are the "new problems" in question?

"I would give you a hint as to what those problems are," Hurwitz started teasing Vulture. "But, really, why rob the fans of being disappointed when they see it on Netflix."

As for if David Cross was right about teasing fans of a 13 episode long season, all Hurwitz would say is "We're definitely shooting some special material just for [Netflix]."

Fans of the series can expect to see the whole Bluth family, plus some other series favorites like Judy Greer as Kitty, Scott Baio as Bob Loblaw and Henry Winkler as Barry Zuckerkorn.

Season four of "Arrested Development" will hit Netflix sometime in the spring of 2013.
