The final countdown to Arrested Development being available for streaming on Netflix has begun with the release of the show’s first trailer!
Can you believe that it has been seven years since The Bluths have broken into our homes? With the hiatus looming towards its end, Arrested Development is back — as the sitcom’s fourth season will stream in full on Netflix.
The show’s first trailer was posted to YouTube on Sunday, and it shows the quirky Bluth family — including Michael (played by Jason Bateman), Lindsay (Portia de Rossi), Gob (Will Arnett), George-Michael (Michael Cera) and the rest of the gang — reuniting onscreen. Fox originally aired the first three seasons of the show from 2003 to 2006 where it quickly gained a cult following. Ultimately, the show was canceled due to low ratings and viewership.
In the years that followed, Arrested Development experienced a true fan awakening of anticipation for a series revival or feature film. Netflix, looking to break into streaming original programming, announced last year that the show would be making a comeback under its wing.
Viewers can once again see the Bluth Family’s shenanigans in this clip below:
Fifteen new episodes of Arrested Development are on their way to Netflix, arriving simultaneously. Due to the limited availability of the cast, each episode will focus on a single character, with not much overlapping in terms of story lines. There will still be at least two occasions where Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, David Cross, Alia Shawkat, Portia de Rossi, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter et al were all on set together.
Are you excited for the return of the show?!
