'Arrested Development' returns on May 26th


Annyong, everybody! Netflix has announced that the Internet's favorite sitcom will make its triumphant return at 3:01 a.m. EST on Sunday, May 26th. Arrested Development's three-season run ended when Fox canned the show back in 2006.

The Bluths will be back for a full 15 episodes, which means we get an extra installment (Netflix originally promised 14). As was the case with House of Cards, the newest season of Arrested Development will be released in full, so you should just go right ahead and bail on that Memorial Day barbecue, like, yesterday, so that you don't wind up making a huge mistake.

Arrested Development's creator, Mitch Hurwitz, seems to think that chief content officer of Netflix is going to be, um, less than thrilled.

Mr. Hurwitz said in a statement that Mr. Sarandos was “going to be immensely disappointed.” He continued: “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.” [New York Times]
