Arrested Development is back for a fourth season – this time on Netflix.
The cult US comedy 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’s 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 15-episode run that will take up the story of the dysfunctional Bluth family.
RTÉ TEN’s John Byrne went to London for the Arrested Development launch, which included a red carpet screening of two episodes at the Vue Cinema on Leicester Square, and met up with several cast members.
“It had been six years – really seven – since we filmed the last episode,” admits Tony Hale, who plays Buster Bluth. “But when I heard Jessica Walters, who plays my mother Lucille, when I heard her kind-of abusive tone to Buster, it kicked right back in for me.”
Arrested Development season four is available on Netflix from Sunday, May 26.
