The inevitable return of the Bluth family is fast approaching, but you won’t see it reappear on Fox. The season four premiere of Arrested Development is expected to drop on Netflix on May 4, 2013. With the entire cast returning, this six year revival has been building up to a level of shenanigans that cannot be bottled up any longer.
If this and Community proves one thing, fan support can conquer all when up against low ratings. Canceled on Fox back in 2006, Arrested Development continued to have a very strong cult following. Now, six years later, the Bluths are back and ready for action. And season four could just be the beginning.
As a precursor, season four is just the build up to a possible Arrested Development movie that has been in the rumor mill since the show ended. This will all depend on how well the new season pans out and hopefully, with enough positive feedback, audiences will be seeing the Bluth family on the big screen.
Season four will be a bit different than what fans of the series remember. Each episode of the new season will focus on one particular character. Since Arrested Development will be exclusive to Netflix, every episode will be released on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Typically this would be an odd day to begin a TV series, but since this is Netflix, I’m sure many won’t mind spending their weekends and marathoning through the entire new season.
Below is the list of all 14 episodes of Arrested Development, in order, as they are suppose to be seen when season 4 debuts on Netflix:
“George Michael 1”
“George Michael 2”
If you’re unaware of what exactly Arrested Development is about, the series follows the strange hijinks of a fairly wealthy housing development family that has seen the founder of The Bluth Company, George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) arrested for fraud and embezzlement. The show revolves around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) who spends his time looking out for the best interest of his dysfunctional family of oddballs.
Along with Jason Bateman and Jeffrey Tambor, the whole gang is back: Michael Cera as George Michael Bluth; Will Arnett as Gob Bluth; Portia de Rossi as Lindsay Fünke; Alia Shawkat as Maeby Fünke; Tony Hale as Buster Bluth; David Cross as Tobias Fünke; Jessica Walter as Lucille Bluth; and of course Ron Howard as the narrator.
Season 4 of Arrested Development is expected to release May 4, 2013 on Netflix in the U.S., U.K., and Canada.
