In just under two weeks on Sunday, May 26, you better hope that you’ve either cleared your entire schedule, or taken a few vacation days to kick off your work week, because “Arrested Development” will be here, and we can’t imagine anyone getting work done until they burn through all 15 of the new episodes Netflix has ordered.
If you are new to the service then you are probably just starting to wrap your brain around the joy that the service does not force you to wait a week to watch new episodes. As a writer, we don’t particularly love it in that it gives us very little to write about on a weekly basis (given that most diehard fans will watch them all at once). From the standpoint of a fan, on the other hand, we understand the impulsive to throw massive watching parties and dress up as your favorite characters.
All your favorites are here: Jason Bateman, Michael Cero, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, and more. There’s also going to be a number of special-guest stars who were probably reveling in the moment that someone asked them if they wanted to be on “Arrested Development.” (That’s like asking Super Mario if he wants to shoot fireballs.)
The first three seasons of this show were critically acclaimed on Fox, but this was unfortunately in the days before Twitter, and when there were so fewer options to watch the show. Who knows? In the modern era, it could be the new “Community” and keep finding ways to come back.
There is some more “Arrested Development” news over here to keep you invested and intrigued, though we also have a feeling that this may not be that difficult at all if you are like us, and eagerly awaiting almost everything that is coming up.
