It's time for your semi-regular, minor update on the highly anticipated new season of "Arrested Development" that is now shooting. In the past week or so we've learned that the Silver Fox himself, "Mad Men" star John Slattery, has joined the cast in an unknown role and more awesomely, that the previously planned 10 episodes could now be stretching out to 13. But when can we see them dammit!? Well, very soon.

When AMC canceled "The Killing" at the end of last month, it put an end to a show that was full of promise but wound up infuriating many viewers by drawing out the mystery behind the murder of Rosie Larsen across two wheel-spinning seasons. In fact, as the second season begun, we laid out the case why viewers should be very, very careful about continuing to tune in to a program that offered increasingly diminished returns. And in any event, audiences were indeed frustrated, as viewership dropped considerably to 1.5 million viewers for the season finale, a tumble from the 2.7 million who tuned in for the first episode. But remarkably, despite harsh criticism from both critics and fans, and clearly measured waning interest, "The Killing" may live on.

We live in a world where a great deal of evil takes place every day. But it's hard to get too upset about humanity when, six years after the show was cancelled, a new season of "Arrested Development" is in production. Like, as we speak. It's been a long path to the revival of the cult favorite comedy, but creator Mitch Hurwitz has finally assembled his original cast for another season of the series (which, for the uninitiated, revolves around the privileged, eccentric Orange County family The Bluths), for a fourth season that will premiere on Netflix next year, before (hopefully) leading into a movie version. And it sounds like we might be getting even more than we originally hoped.

Since CBS cancelled his series “The Unit” in 2009, David Mamet hasn’t had a lot brewing on the small or big screen -- his last feature-length film was the 2008 MMA drama “Redbelt.” But the acclaimed playwright has some new television work in the pipeline in the form of a reboot of the classic western series “Have Gun - Will Travel.”

Need more Hitchock in your life? Well for starters, there are two movies about the legendary filmmaker on the way with Toby Jones playing the director in the upcoming "The Girl" with Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, and there's Anthony Hopkins leading "Hitchcock" alongside a massive ensemble of big names. And next month Universal will break your wallet by dropping the "Alfred Hitchock: The Masterpiece Collection" on BluRay, a boxset of 15 iconic films, 13 of which will be in the high def format for the first time. But wait, there's more.....

To put it plainly, "The Office" has never really recovered after the departure of Steve Carell. In fact, one could argue the show peaked during season five, his third to last run on the show, and began a downward decline that was only exacerabated by the hunt for a new office manager and a switch in corporate ownership for Dunder Mifflin. It has long retreated for the sharp and funny early seasons, and it is now ready to say goodbye as executive producer Greg Daniels has revealed that the upcoming ninth season will also be the last.

Recap: 'The Newsroom' Holds A Mock Debate, Hits New Lows

On TV at least, it feels like one of the major problems with Aaron Sorkin's writing, both on "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip" and "The Newsroom," is that it seems like he'd still rather be writing "The West Wing." It's understandable. For one, he was unceremoniously fired from that show at the end of the fourth season, and presumably feels there's an itch still to be scratched. For another, it was pretty much the best network TV drama of the last 15 years. We'd certainly rather be watching "The West Wing." But while it's not as inorganic as it was on 'Studio 60,' there's a sense that Sorkin is returning to the same kind of issue-based plotlines he tackled before, but in a setting that makes it feels somewhat forced.

Recap: Everybody Wins In 'Buyout,' Another Terrific 'Breaking Bad' Episode

This week’s episode of "Breaking Bad" begins with a funereal tone, and with good reason. After pulling off their methylamine heist successfully last week, the crew’s victory was immediately marred by the murder of a witness who just happened to be a young boy. In a haunting wordless opening Walt, Mike and Todd clean up the mess they made last week, dispensing of the dirtbike and the boy that once rode it. The buzzing score tells us that this is not business as usual for the crew and for a moment even the recently unshakable Walt appears to wince at the gravity of what they’ve done. Outside Todd tries to make small talk with Jesse, writing the incident off as, “Shit happens, huh?” before Jesse decks him. Welcome to “Breaking Bad.”

After spinning its wheels for the last couple of seasons, "Dexter" ended season six with a helluva cliffhanger, with the lead serial killer's cop sister literally catching him in the act. As we already know, season seven will begin right where we left off (in case you missed it, you can watch the first two minutes of the first episode here). Now, a new trailer has dropped for the upcoming season, and it appears that Dexter will be playing a game of cat and mouse to keep the depths of his crimes under wraps.

Recap: 'Louie' Flees His Daddy Issues In Strangest Episode Of The Season So Far

If there's been a theme of the third season of "Louie" so far (although it's been less present in the last couple of episodes), it's "manning up." Louie's girlfriend accused of him of not having the courage to break up with her, he was eviscerated by Melissa Leo for refusing to go down on her, he had a curious, semi-romantic encounter with a man in Miami, he failed to satisfy Maria Bamford in bed, and was emasculated and dared into all kinds of things by Parker Posey. Masculinity, and what it takes to prove it, appears to have been on Louis C.K.'s mind of late, and none more so than in this week's episode, tellingly titled, "Dad."
