Fans of the acclaimed comedy Arrested Development have reason to rejoice today. Rumor has it Fox has announced that season four is currently slated to debut on Netflix this May.
According to Collider, the highly-anticipated fourth season of the comedy will be available to subscribers beginning May 4. Instead of rolling out the episodes on a week-by-week basis, the entire season will be available at once.
Arrested Development season four will be released on a Saturday, which means fans with nothing to do can consume the entire run in one weekend if they so choose.
Bleeding Cool reports that Fox originally listed the episodes that will be included in this season of the comedy. Each one is named after a particular character in the show. However, Fox soon pulled the titles shortly after they were made available.
Fortunately, a number of websites managed to copy and paste the episode titles before than vanished from the official Fox press page.
Cinema Blend explains that the May 4 release date for Arrested Development only applies to subscribers in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The company could offer the series in other territories at a later date.
The website also points out that Fox and Netflix could change the release date since the information is no longer officially available on any of the companies’ official sites.
Arrested Development originally ran on FOX between 2003 and 2006. Despite earning a strong cult following and a number of positive reviews from critics, the program never really found its foothold in the ratings.
Fans of the show were thrilled when Netflix announced it would produce and distribute a new season exclusively on its streaming service. Fourteen new episodes are currently slated to arrive next year.
