It's almost time, just as the trailer promises, we're at the final countdown until Arrested Development finally returns thanks to Netflix. The trailer for the upcoming fourth season, soundtracked by Europe's biggestc hit, promises us the much needed dose of illusions, birds, uncomfortable cousin tension and of course some of the finest acting you will ever see from the world's most famous openly never-nude in what could be the biggest TV moment to hit the internet.

The trailer tries not to give too much away, but there is an ostrich in it, which will hopefully walk on Buster's pillow at some point, some incredibly detailed set designs (of course) and plenty more references to past jokes. All that in a trailer that is less than 1 minute 30 seconds.

Judging from the short trailer, it looks as though Michael (Jason Bateman) has finally moved to Phoenix and George Michael (Michael Cera) has moved on to college, where his dad walks in on him with a special lady (his cousin, Maeby Funke - Alia Shawkat). Meanwhile Tobias and Lindsay (Portia de Rossi and David Cross) are still working on their marriage, and their acting careers (or whatever it is Lindsay does) and GOB (Will Arnett) is still a pest. George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), Buster (Tony Hale) and Lucille (Jessica Walter) are also in the trailer, as is Kitty (Judy Greer), despite promising that we'd never see her... again.

Was well as Greer, former guest stars including Mae Whitman, Liza Minnelli and Carl Weathers are all set to return at some point in the comeback series, as well as a number of newcomers. Arrested Development returns on Netflix on Sunday, May 26.
