Netflix has finally revealed exactly when we’ll be able to get our new Arrested Development fix: May 26, 2013 will see the debut of 15 new episodes of the Mitch Hurwitz-led series, which will go live in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Latin America, Brazil and the Nordics as of 12:01 AM Pacific Time. The series length is actually up one episode from earlier reports, so there’s even more new Arrested Development for die-hard fans to marathon that day.
As with Netflix’s original series House of Cards, all 15 episodes of Arrested Development will debut at the same time on the streaming service, and obviously won’t feature any commercials. It’s also available to all markets where Netflix operates at the same time, which often isn’t true for televised content. The new series sees the entire core cast return for the show, including Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Tony Hale, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, David Cross and Alia Shawkat.
Show runner Mitch Hurwitz and Arnett, who plays Gob Bluth, recently talked to TechCrunch about the return of Arrested Development on Netflix. Check out the video below to see what the two had to say about launching a new season direct to the streaming video service.
