I don’t know about you bastards, but I’m a huge fan of the original series. I’ll be honest, I didn’t watch the series when it was on TV, but I got hooked when I watched a few episodes on Netflix a couple years ago. Needless to say, this is a must watch!
The anxiously awaited fourth season of “Arrested Development” premiered last night at the TCL Chinese Theater. Many thanks to Netflix for bringing together the funding to get this project off the ground! For those of you who have a Netflix account, make sure you catch up over the next month before the series debuts on May 26.
According to the show’s Wiki page, the revived fourth season will consist of 15 episodes and most of the characters who previously had recurring roles will reprise those roles. A few new names added to the mix include Kristen Wiig, Isla Fisher and John Krasinski. While we don’t know everything about the upcoming season, here’s what we do know…
The show format for this season has been reported to be different compared to previous seasons. Show creator Mitchell Hurwitz has stated that each of the new season’s fifteen episodes will focus on one individual character—with every episode happening at the same time within the show’s universe—showing the character’s activities since the conclusion of the third season. As according to Jason Bateman, “If I’m driving down the street in my episode and Gob’s going down the sidewalk on his Segway, you could stop my episode, go into his episode, and follow him and see where he’s going.” Michael Cera joined the writing crew for season 4, the first cast member to do so. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and creator Mitchell Hurwitz have both confirmed that season four will be the final season of the show, and that the revival serves as a “one-off” and “act one of a movie”. But, a Netflix spokesperson later went on to say, “We’re hopeful there will be more seasons” and “…by no means is this the end of it. We’re definitely planning to do more with them.” Source
