Arrested Development fans have been rewarded with both a new season of the cult-hit show and (more than likely) an upcoming movie. The start of production on season 4 has been a real joy for the AD faithful, thanks to the news that rental/streaming service Netflix will debut the entire season at once; the entire cast is returning; and even reoccurring characters like Bob Loblaw (Scott Baio), Barry Zuckerkorn (Henry Winkler), Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli) and Ann Veal (Mae Whitman) will all be returning as well.

We’ve already gotten some looks at the Arrested Development season 4 set, but today we’re getting our first official look at the Bluth family’s return – and it is funny, as usual.

Check out the first official Arrested Development season 4 promo image, courtesy of EW:

Classic Bluths. Or classical Bluths to be more accurate. This picture captures the Bluth family dynasty in perfect repose, from Tobias (David Cross) as a gay (as in happy) fool; Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) as a not-so-grand duchess; Buster (Tony Hale) as effeminate and infantile as ever; Gob as a bird-tossing showman; George (Jeffery Tambor) and Lucille (Jessica Walter) as the monarchal family heads; Michael (Jason Bateman) as the (literally) right-hand man; and on the outskirts of the family, too-close-for-comfort cousins George-Michael (Michael Cera) and Maeby (Alia Shawkat). All is as we left it.

Early season 4 plot details point to Michael attempting to flee from his family, only to be pulled back in (big surprise). Along the way we’ll catch up with various members of the Bluth clan, to see what they’ve been up to since the series left the airwaves. Cast members like Alia Shawkat are already assuring fans that the scripts for the fourth season are funnier than ever; we’d expect no less.

Arrested Development season 4 premiere (in its entirety) on Netflix, sometime in spring 2013.

  1. I have never watched Arrested Development in my lifetime. Is it about people who are slowly developing into real world challenges and facing harsh times in this day and age?

    • Actually its about a family of wealthy psychos and all of the idiotic crap they get into on a daily basis.

      Its still very good tough, you definitely need to watch the first 3 seasons in order to appreciate it.

      • I think psychos is a bit of a stretch…

        • Aren’t they poor? Well not dirt poor but they own a failing company.

          • It’s basically a satire depicting a very dysfunctional family who just go around in circles getting themselves into all kinds of outrageous situations…narrated by Ron Howard. They were once wealthy that, to a certain degree, have fallen on difficult times. It’s pretty hilarious in my opinion.

    • JerseySchindler/Thomasine

      No. It’s not about that at all.

    • It’s the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It’s Arrested Development.

      • @ Busta
        HAHA!! Ya beat me too it. :)

    • Basically, it’s about this wealthy american family with a good real estate buisness until the patriach, George Bluth goes to jail for embezzling money from the company as well as committing “light treason” (I.E. signing a contract with Saddam Hussein). Anyway, as a result, all their assets are frozen so they have to get used to living within their means, something their DEFINITELY not used to! Lol! And Micheal, (the third eldest and a widower with a son) assumes responsibility of looking after everyone and the company, it’s really clever and funny!

      Hope this helps! Lol!

    • who else’s lifetime would you possible have watched this in but your own??
