Hurrah! Netflix Confirm Arrested Development Premiere

It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for, Arrested Development has an official launch date! Netflix, who have signed a deal to air the comeback series of the much loved cult comedy show, have revealed that fans will be getting a chance to watch the 15 (15!) new episodes from their streaming service on May 26th. Much like other Netflix premieres such as House Of Cards, the entire season will be available to subscribers on the same day.

"In truth we are doing something very ambitious that can only be done with Netflix as partners and on their platform," said Mitchell Hurwitz about Netflix plans to make the show available 24/7. "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."

It’s been over seven years since fans got a chance to check up on the antics of the Bluth family, a rich family with a corrupt father whom allegedly built houses for Iraq. Starring Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Portia De Rossi and David Cross among others, all of the main stars will be returning as well as cameo stars like Ben Stiller. The show was hugely critically acclaimed in 2006, but with a bad run of ratings, Fox cancelled it. A constant pressure to bring it back from fans saw the cast reveal in 2011 that they would indeed be filming more episodes.
