Will Arnett returning to '30 Rock'

Even though Will Arnett has his own hit sitcom with "Up All Night," TV Guide reports that the actor will reprise his role as Devon Banks on “30 Rock” this season.

The sixth season of the NBC comedy will start this winter, but there’s no set date for Jack’s nemesis to return. We’ll have to be surprised.

When we last left him, evil Devon had exited the corporate world to become a stay-at-home dad (much like his role on “Up All Night,” except that's minus the evil).

Arnett, 41, says he’d like for his character, usually such a shark, to snap out of his slump.

“If I were to return to '30 Rock,' I'd like to see Devon grow his spine back a little bit, even though his spine is still pretty jelly-ish,” the Canadian actor told TV Guide last month.

Amidst all Will’s new TV success, there’s the news that we could get new episodes of Arnett’s cult classic TV series "Arrested Development,” as well as the highly anticipated movie. It’s just too much!

“30 Rock” won't return until the mid-season, but you can catch “Up All Night” Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.

    30 Rock is awesome and I'm glad to have Will Arnett back for a little bit.

    It's funny to see so many people commenting with 30 Rock hate. I guess when there is no laugh track telling stupid people when to laugh, they tend to get lost.

    You need to realise there are people in the northeastern US that have never left the skyscraper they live in. They work on one floor, live on another, then go to restaurants on another. They have only been outside a few times. This seems to be 30 Rocks target core audience. straaaaaange city dwellers.

    Finally! Someone who agrees with me for a change! 30 Rock is one of the dumbest shows I have ever seen. What is wrong with people these days? Dont they have any taste at all?

    I watched this show for the first time yesterday. It stank. Why do people like it or think it is good? It really is a dumb show. Comedy Central is making a mistake running reruns of this zero.
