    A ? for Arrested Development Fans.

    I've been watching the series online and I was just wondering why in Season 3 so much seems to happen off screen between the 1st and 2nd episode. Is that when they found out they were getting cancelled and decided they needed to start winding down? Or did I just miss something?

    I don't think they knew that early on that the show was getting canceled, but the season order was cut short pretty early on, so a lot of Season Three was like that with plots getting advanced a lot more quickly than the producers would have preferred.

    I seem to recall hearing that, with the shortened season order, they tried squeezing as much as they could out of each episode, which meant using "On the next Arrested Development" to a greater degree than in previous seasons.

    I was under the impression that they did in fact know that they were on the verge of being cancelled. They even broke the fourth wall with jokes such as the whole "Save Our Bluths" thing.

    The show had been on the verge of cancellation since about the second episode of the first season.

    Yeah, but that was pretty late in the season.
