Fans of 'Arrested Development' finally got the news they've been craving: Netflix has announced a release date for 15 new episodes of the beloved cult comedy.
The dysfunctional Bluth family will debut on the streaming service on May 26 at 12:01 a.m. (PDT). It will mark the highly anticipated return of the show after a three-year, multi-Emmy-winning run on Fox (2003-2006).
Netflix will use the same strategy as it did with its highly acclaimed political drama 'House of Cards' and release all 15 episodes of 'Arrested Development' simultaneously.
And consider that a bonus. The 15 episodes represent one more than what Netflix originally announced in January.
Series creator Mitchell Hurwitz has said that this 'anthology' of episodes is designed as a prequel to a long-rumored movie that he and the fully reunited cast (which includes Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Tony Hale, Jeffrey Tambor and Alia Shawkat) still hope to make.
In addition to the core cast, guest stars appearing for the revival include Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Liza Minnelli, Conan O'Brien, John Slattery and Terry Crews.
