Seven years after “Arrested Development” was cancelled, its fans have something to cheer for: Netflix announced that the show’s long-delayed fourth season will appear online Sunday, May 26.
All 15 episodes of the new “Arrested Development” season will be available on Netflix at 12:01 a.m., Pacific Time. That’s 3:01 a.m. here, meaning either a late night or a very early morning for devoted fans on the east coast.
The fourth season will see the entire cast -- including stars Jason Bateman and Michael Cera -- reunited. But according to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, this reunion is a one-time deal.
The agreement between Netflix and the Arrested Development team happened under “unrepeatable circumstances,” Hastings told The Hollywood Reporter. "Arrested is a unique property, we don’t anticipate being able to do season five, six and seven."
