New Season of Arrested Development Coming Soon

May 26th. marks the return of one of the most popular cult comedy sitcoms of our time!  Arrested Development returns to Netflix in a couple of weeks with 15 new episodes that you will be able to watch simultaneously.  Arrested development aired on FOX between 2003 and 2006 before getting cancelled.  While their ratings weren’t exceptional back then, it seems like Arrested Development was ahead of its time.  Maybe even too smart for the audience.  But, Arrested Development’s fans are just as loyal today and their fan base has been growing ever since, making the sitcom a cult comedy.

Although Arrested Development didn’t run for very long, it has a very loyal fan base that has been growing since it has been off of the air.  A cult hit television show is defined by its very passionate fan base and usually has lower ratings.  I began watching Arrested Development, like many, after the show was cancelled.  I am now a loyal fan and can not wait for the new season to be released on Netflix.  So, on Saturday May 25th. I have cleared my schedule!  I will be sitting in front of my computer for an entire day, to watch every episode all at once, like I know so many of you will be doing too!

It took quite a few years for the creator Mitchell Hurwitz to get everyone from the original cast together.  Sadly, there will only be one or two episodes where the entire Bluth family appears together in one place!  Each episode will mainly be focusing on one character at a time, catching us up on what they have been up to since the series finale.  And although you may be sad that there will only be one more season of fifteen episodes, don’t fret yet because there may be a movie in the works!  Arrested Development the movie has not been Green Lit yet, but Mitchell Hurwitz and Ron Howard, the narrator, are working on it.

So my question is this:  Will this newest season of Arrested Development be as fun and smart as the previous episodes?  Will it still be too smart for its viewers?  Or will it be that relief we have been waiting for, that edgy, sexy, ridiculous comedy relief?  Let us know what you think about Arrested Development and the Bluth family.  What were your favorite episodes and what or who are you looking forward to this season?
