After a seven-year break, cult US sitcom Arrested Development is back for a fourth season from today, Sunday May 26.

The show originally ran from 2003 to 2006, on Fox in the US and on BBC Two on this side of the Atlantic, and after years of speculation it has finally returned with its cast complete.

Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Tony Hale and the rest of the gang reunited for a new run that will take up the story of the dysfunctional (and thankfully fictional) Bluth family.

The season will consist of 15 new episodes, all debuting on Netflix today, May 26. In other words, you can watch as much and as often as you like – once you’re a Netflix subscriber.
