Arrested Development season four hits Netflix on May 26th

Stair cars and banana stands at the ready - the Bluth family's adventures return to a screen near you in 15 all-new episodes

 

Netflix's bid to turn itself into a full-fledged online TV channel continues apace, with the fourth season of Arrested Development premiering on the video streaming service on May 26.

Going live to all Netflix customers including us Brits – from 12.01 am on that date, with all 15 episodes available to watch straight away to subscribers, the Bluth family will return to a screen near you for the fourth season of the Emmy Award-winning show.

All the original cast return for the new series – the first since 2006 – which stars Jason Bateman as head of the dysfunctional Bluth family.

Series creator Mitchell Hurwitz has hinted that season four will act as a prequel to the long-rumoured Arrested Development movie. Each of the new episodes will focus on a particular character, with others making appearances.
