We all know by now (and are totally excited, I presume) that Arrested Development is coming back with a whole new season exclusively to Netflix. I just re-started my Netflix membership a few weeks ago, so I’m ready to go! All your favourites will be back – Portia de Rossi, Jason Bateman, David Cross, Will Arnett and more. Kristen Wiig will even be making an appearance as a young Lucille Bluth. It’s basically going to be amazing.
Above, the first trailer for the full season – which will be available all in one go from May 26. Why isn’t it May 26 yet? More importantly, how many episodes will there be before we get a taste of the Chicken Dance or until Buster brings back Franklin?
What do you guys think – looking forward to more Arrested Development or has the ship sailed?
Just to brief you, Amber Tamblyn is twenty-nine years old (she’s actually a month older than me), and David Cross? Well, he’s not twenty-nine years old. He’s not even thirty-nine years old. David Cross is actually going to be forty-nine years old in just a few months, and while it’s definitely not treading in Courtney Stodden-Doug Hutchison waters, it’s still a little strange, to be honest. Not entirely unexpected, mind you, considering the fact that they got engaged just about a year ago, but initially strange nevertheless.
Arrested Development was canceled in 2006; since then, Netflix has been experimenting with original streaming content. And now Netflix has been charged with Arrested Development‘s very resurrection! It’s great news for everybody!
Depending on your television-watching proclivities this is very exciting news—and if you aren’t excited, what is the matter with you?—but nonetheless, try to hold onto your butts. According to some sources, the show won’t “air” until 2013. Blah. But oh, well! Masterpieces take time.

And I’m of two minds, here: for one, I’m newly 29, which is old-young, and I’ve had a crush on David Cross ever since Men in Black. (Tamblyn, in the meantime, starred in The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants.) So their age difference—of nearly 20 years—does not surprise or titillate me, sorry. Another thing: when David Cross did a set at my university, afterward, I was like, wow, that dude really likes people my age! And no offense, but, uh, yeah, he actually does. Apparently.
I have my misgivings, though. My mother was only 12 years younger than her husband, whom she married when she was 27, and she and I spent the last seven years or so coping with his Alzheimer’s. OK, that’s pretty depressing! But all I’m saying is, 20 years is a pretty serious commitment because, hey, that age difference can become your whole life. Know what I mean?
