The 'Arrested Development' season 4 front has been curiously quiet of late, but at long last the Bluths have finally set their return! Netflix officially announced today that 'Arrested Development's' revival season of all-new episodes will hit the streaming website on May 26, toting an additional episode that brings the reunion to 15 episodes total.

For as eager as fans of 'Arrested Development' are to see the 14 original episodes debuting in their entirety on Netflix this May, perhaps more coveted is news of the revived FOX series' fate beyond the reunion season. We've heard a bit of speculation on either side toward additional Netflix episodes or a potential movie, but what does series creator Mitch Hurwitz have to say, a month prior to the Netflix release? Is there, or isn't there more 'Arrested Development' in our future?
At this point, it might be easier to list off the 'Arrested Development' characters who won't be returning for Netflix's upcoming revival season, but some reveals are too good not to share. Fan-favorite Lucille-squealing private "detective" Gene Parmesan will indeed return within the 14 new episodes as played by actor Martin Mull.

Granted, no 'Arrested Development' fans will soon forget the sheer miracle that led to the cancelled FOX comedy coming back for new episodes on Netflix seven years after disbanding, but we couldn't help feeling disappointed by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings' recent comments that additional seasons were an unlikely prospect. The company has since backpedaled, claiming additional orders of the acclaimed cult comedy are indeed possible, but what does series star David Cross have to say about the likelihood, or the potential feature film afterward?
Much of the recent press surrounding 'Arrested Development's long-awaited return this May has focused Netflix's uncertainty about additional seasons going forward, but it seems the revival has conjured up another trick illusion to distract us from the thought. Following the multitude of past 'Arrested' stars and new roles joining the season, Ben Stiller has been announced to reprise his role as upstaging magician Tony Wonder, but what shenanigans might he bake himself into this time?
Given all the whiplash 'Arrested Development' fans have had to endure in their lives already, we were recently distressed (albeit not altogether unsurprised) that Netflix CEO Reed Hastings had significant doubts that the upcoming 'Arrested Development' season 4 revival would lead to any additional Netflix seasons. We've heard on multiple occasions that the new episodes debuting in May lay the groundwork for a movie rather than additional Netflix content, but is there hope of continuing the series regardless?

Perhaps one of the sweetest sounds we'd ever heard was the breaking news of 'Arrested Development's glorious return, to be broadcast across 10 14 episodes in May of 2013. Better yet was the possibility of even further 'Arrested Development' going forward, be it additional Netflix seasons or even the long-rumored movie, but has Netflix closed the banana stand on future offerings?

As 'Arrested Development' fans wind toward May and the imminent release of Netflix's revival season, it had seemed the major casting announcements had come and gone, and a trailer would be the next big thing on the horizon. Not so, as we've just learned comic superstars Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig will appear in the upcoming 'Arrested Development' revival, and you'll never guess as who! Meet the latest additions to the Bluth family inside!
Every day brings us closer and closer to 'Arrested Development' season 4, or Netflix's revival season, or whatever we're referring to it as these days, but surprisingly we've yet to see any real footage, or even all that many images of the cast reunited! All that has changed with series executive producer/narrator Ron Howard, who revealed a look at the new Bluth family portrait with a recent tweet! Get a look at the reunited Bluth family of 'Arrested Development' season 4 inside!
Despite the announcements and teasers we caught from the January TCA press tour, it's been awhile since we've heard any new casting from 'Arrested Development's fourth season, or whatever we're calling the 14-episode Netflix revival these days. Thankfully, that drought has ended, as 'Inside the Actor's Studio' legend James Lipton has announced his official return as Warden Stefan Gentles! But what could bring the "New Warden" back into the picture, if not another of the Bluths in jail? New 'Arrested Development' season 4 details inside!
