Arrested Development is one of my absolute favorite TV series. With its relentless stream of inside-jokes, witticisms, and cast whose talents are constantly matched AND one-upped with every scene, news of the show’s unfair cancellation in 2006 was met with both anger and understanding. The combination of Fox’s mishandling of the show by continuously shifting its time slot and the show’s inherent necessity to watch each episode in order to understand the jokes and gags proved to be its downfall.
However, after a seven year wait, the series is set to return, this time exclusively airing on Netflix. The upcoming “Season 4” will go live on May 26th with each of the season’s 15 episodes becoming available simultaneously. To whet fans’ appetites, a teaser trailer was released late last night showcasing the same type of humor and wit that garnered the show’s various awards and accolades.
If you haven’t yet watched the show, I urge you to set aside some time and go through a marathon run of the show’s 53 episodes on Netflix in preparation.
