‘Arrested Development’ Season 4 Trailer – The Bluths Are Back

Published 2 years ago by , Updated May 13th, 2013 at 7:26 am,

We’re just two weeks away from the return of Arrested Development, and though we’ve seen numerous images, an outtake, and the final poster from the long-awaited season 4, today we’re finally seeing the trailer.

As you can see (and as you have doubtlessly read), everyone’s back for this batch of 15 new episodes and they all look more or less the same as they did when Michael (Jason Batemen) and George Michael Bluth (Michael Cera) rode off into the sunset, leaving the family to fend for themselves at the end of season 3.

It’s hard to tell from a trailer, but it seems like the Bluth family has done about as good a job of fending for themselves as can be expected.

Clearly, Gob (Will Arnett) is embracing the art of illusion and seduction while Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) and Tobias (David Cross) seem like they’re still locked into some kind of loveless relationship. As for baby Buster (Tony Hale), he’s still absent a hand and under Lucille’s thumb, but at least he gets the sweet victory of a juice box at the end of the day.

As for Maeby (Alia Shawkat) and George Michael – well, they’re still close, but whether or not they’re still circling a taboo relationship remains to be seen.

Sadly, we won’t get to see a lot of interplay between the entire cast as schedules demanded that each of these new episodes  focus on a single character (though members of the main cast will still appear in those episodes). However, one thing we will see a lot of is guest stars.

For example, in the trailer, we can see Kitty Sanchez (Judy Greer) threaten Michael, as she is wont to do. And while none of the other guest stars from the show’s initial run make an appearance in the trailer, we know that Mae Whitman, James Lipton, Andy Richter, Liza Minnelli, Ben Stiller, Carl Weathers, Ron Howard, Henry Winkler and Scott Baio will all be appearing at some point in season 4. Kristen Wiig, John Krasinski, Conan O’Brien, Isla Fisher, John Slattery, and Seth Rogen will also make appearances.

As for what happens after this season, nobody knows for sure. Netflix issued conflicting statements regarding future seasons in February, but a movie is a very real possibility and the show could lead to that becoming a reality – assuming Arrested fans feast on these new episodes like a bow-tie-wearing seal on mammal flesh.


Arrested Development returns on May 26th, 2013 with 15 new episodes on Netflix.

  1. Made my morning!

    • Made mine too ! :)

  2. Kind of got goosebumps watching that. Possibly the best sitcom of all time, (with apologies to Seinfeld and Curb).

    • Im with you. Though I have never been a Seinfeld fan, but Curb is hysterical. Larry David is just a great character.

  3. Does anyone know if it will come out on DVD at some point? I don’t have Netflix and I’m a huge fan of AD.

    • Sign up for the 30 day trial and don’t renew, or do if you find you like having it

    • Without a doubt.

  4. @eric unlikely its a Netflix exclusive. That being said this will be the longest 2 weeks of my life!

    • Pretty sure that just refers to the initial airing. House of Cards is coming to DVD.

      After all, Netflix is a DVD service, too.

  5. YES!!!! Made your mornings? This makes my year. Looking forward to AD more than any movie coming out this year, I think.

  6. My feelings about this upcoming season can be summed up by the shot of Buster and his juice box…

  7. When the Final Countdown kicks in I still giggle like an idiot.

  8. I’m not exaggerating when I say this show’s return is a dream come true. Literal dreams about the show. Prayers have been answered. The improbable has happened. This show’s return sincerely makes me believe that anything is possible.

  9. Dozens of people just blue themselves.

    • DOZENS!!
