Looking for something to do Memorial Day weekend? You could marathon the new “Arrested Development” episodes.
Netflix has just announced the cult favorite show will premiere its 15 new episodes on Sunday, May 26 on its online streaming service. The show previously ran on FOX from 2003 to 2006, winning the Emmy for Best Comedy and earning itself a fervent fanbase, even if it never took off as a commercial hit.
Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, says of the release, “‘Arrested Development’ is now widely viewed as one of the top TV
comedies of all time and Mitch Hurwitz is bringing it to Netflix in a
brand-new way, crafted for the on-demand generation that has come to
discover the show in the years since it last appeared on TV. The highly anticipated
return of this show is sure to make history all over again.”
Creator Hurwitz adds, “We are doing something very ambitious that can only be done with Netflix as partners and on their platform. 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.”
