The moment “Arrested Development” fans have been waiting for is almost here. Seven years after the cult-favorite TV show left the airwaves, “Arrested Development” returns for a fourth season on May 26, exclusively on Netflix's instant streaming service. Now, fans can also watch the first trailer for this season of “Arrested Development.”
In the trailer, viewers are treated to a good glimpse at every character in the gleefully dysfunctional Bluth family. Like most episodes of the show, it’s centered around Michael Bluth, but we get good glimpses of Buster, GOB, Tobias, George Michael, and pretty much everyone else. There’s even a short scene with the world’s worst secretary, Kitty.
If you’re hungry for more exclusive looks at the fourth season of “Arrested Development,” Netflix has released a one-minute clip that you can watch below.
Last month, Entertainment Weekly also introduced several new promo shots for “Arrested Development’s” fourth season. In perhaps the most bizarre press photo, Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig (neither of whom appeared in the original series) are seen in a bedroom. Based on Internet chatter, it seems that Wiig and Rogen may be playing younger versions of Bluth family elders Lucille and George Sr. Still, fans will have to wait just a bit longer before finding out for sure.
"Arrested Development” was canceled by Fox in 2006 after three years on the air and steadily built itself a dedicated cult following in subsequent years. For years, fans petitioned the network to bring the series back as a movie. Then, in November 2011, Netflix announced it would be airing a new season online. Fans everywhere rejoiced.
The fan favorite premiered on Fox in 2003. It followed the lives of a dysfunctional wealthy Orange County, Calif., family, the Bluths. Before it was canceled, "Arrested Development" kickstarted the careers of Michael Cera and Will Arnett, while revitalizing the then-struggling career of Jason Bateman.
Netflix plans to make all 15 new episodes of the show available at once, rather than spreading them out over several weeks.
