‘Arrested Development’ Finally Gets A Premiere Date
This is anything but a huge mistake.
Netflix announced Thursday that it will premiere the much-anticipated fourth season of Arrested Development on May 26 at 12:01AM PST.
Fifteen episodes of the Emmy-winning comedy will be available at once — the first batch of new episodes since FOX canceled the series in 2006. (The show had originally received a 14-episode order.)
“In truth we are doing something very ambitious that can only be done with Netflix as partners and on their platform. Finally my simple wish for the show is coming true: that it be broadcast every second around the clock to every television, computer or mobile device in existence,” series creator Mitchell Hurwitz said in a statement Thursday.
“The highly anticipated return of this show is sure to make history all over again,” Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer of Netflix, added.
Arrested Development, which will see the return of its entire original cast, is just the latest move by Netflix to capitalize on its growing television network.
Earlier this year, it premiered the political thriller House of Cards, to much acclaim and online steams.
