At last! The wait is officially over. "Arrested Development" fans have eagerly been waiting for news regarding the season four Netflix release date. It's been known for sometime that the cult classic series would return sometime in May, but an exact date was never provided. Fans spent their days reading up on cast interviews, panel discussions and season four rumors, all the while trying to put a finger on the show's exact return. Well, we can all take a deep breath. The fourth season of "Arrested Development" is officially set to premiere on May 26 at 12:01 a.m. PST.
Fans will also receive a special treat for being so patient. An additional bonus episode has been added, capping the season at 15 total episodes. This may seem like plenty, but for hardcore "Arrested Development" fans, this is just a measly day's worth of television.
Netflix will release all 15 episodes at once, giving fans the opportunity to watch the new season at a pace of their choice. This is a grand idea, however will likely result in serious binge watching. May 26 could be the most unproductive day the world has ever seen.
The fourth season will feature Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) as he tries to reunite the Bluth family in hopes of making a movie that documents their dysfunctional lives. Guest stars include Seth Rogen, Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig and will include cameos from the show's creator's Mitch Hurwitz and Brian Grazer.
Every episode is dedicated to a particular character, as other Bluths weave in and out. The same exact interaction could take place in multiple episodes, but all from a different character's perspective in every episode. It will be a masterpiece unlike anything we've ever seen before.
The final countdown has begun. May 26 couldn't come any sooner. It's time we get out our vodka martinis and blue denim shorts, because the Bluths are back in town.
