Annyong! Yesterday, at NAB in Las Vegas several members of the cast of Arrested Development attended a Netflix-sponsored event, and we finally learned some more about plans for the fourth season of the show. The best news? All 10 episodes will be available on Netflix on one single day. Woo-hoo! Mitch Hurwitz spoke about the new season and his original plans to make this run an anthology where each story would tell a self-contained story about each character. He said, "that is now kind of evolving into becoming more like the old show again." Thank someone, because I did not like the idea of seeing the characters stories separately.
The brilliance of the show is how carefully the stories are inter-woven, so I don't know that it could be the same without the whole family back together again. I'm also very curious how they are going to deal with the fact that Michael Cera is much more grown up (although it's not like he doesn't play George Michael Bluth in every movie he does already). Hurwitz also said this about using a "marathon-esque" format of the show, " There's going to be some mystery sprinkled throughout this [but] instead of watching one a week and try to get ahead of it, the hope is [fans] will watch them all together and then go back and look for clues and connections." There is not a single thing bad that I can find to say about any of this news, except that it will be coming out next year which feels soooooo far away.
