Netflix has announced that their exclusive fourth season of Arrested Development returns at 12:01 am on May 26th. In a move very similar to that of the debut of House of Cards, the whole season of 15 episodes will become available at once for Netflix customers to enjoy, as opposed to releasing episodes after some time passes by. This is intended that the viewer can then watch them at their own convenience. Fans are sure to be pleased, especially since they will be getting one episode more than the fourteen that were originally promised.
The show’s creator Mitch Hurwitz was able to reassemble the entire core cast of the series including Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia Rossi, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter, and Jeffrey Tambor. They also decided to have each one of the fifteen episodes focus on a different character’s point of view.
Arrested Development returns to Netflix users in the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, and the nations of Latin America. Interestingly, the May release date will actually qualify the series for Emmy consideration, which Netflix intends to pursue in the comedy categories.
