Check Out The New Arrested Development Trailer!

By on May 13, 2013


With just two weeks until the launch of Arrested Development season 4 on Netflix, the streaming video company has released the first teaser trailer for the 15-episode season. All episodes will be released on Memorial Day weekend (May 26), so fans of the series can binge-watch the entire run immediately. I don’t know about you, but I could watch hours of Job performing failed magic tricks to Europe’s The Final Countdown.

Arrested Development Season 4 Trailer

Arrested Development stars Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Tony Hale, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, and Alia Shawkat in addition to Ron Howard as the narrator. Detailing the insane lives of the Bluth family, the show was revived by Netflix due to the rampant popularity of the first three seasons on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming video.

The show aired on FOX between 2003 and 2006, but was eventually dumped by the network due to low ratings. In fact, FOX cut the final season from 22 episodes down to 13 and dumped the final four episodes on the same night that the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics aired on NBC. According to this stellar Vulture piece about the fans of the show, it was replaced by a horrific reality show called Skating With Celebrities (which lasted a grand total of seven episodes)
