Netflix to Release All 10 Upcoming Arrested Development Shows at Once
Quote:
Netflix is planning to simultaneously release the entire fourth season of Arrested Development “sometime next year,” the company announced at a National Association of Broadcasters event in Las Vegas Tuesday evening.

The streaming video subscription service is developing 10 episodes of the series, which was cancelled for poor performance in 2006, in partnership with Fox and Imagine Television.

Each episode will center around one character, the show’s creator, Mitchell Hurwitz, said from the stage. He added that the new shows will be similar to the previous ones, but declined to go into further specifics about the format or storyline.

Hurwitz also expressed hope that he and his team could go on to produce fifth and sixth seasons of the show for Netflix, should the first 10 episodes prove successful.

Netflix revealed in November that it had signed a deal to revive the beloved sitcom, which it would bring exclusively to its U.S. subscribers in the first half of 2013. The company now appears to be less certain about the timing of the release, but did say on Tuesday that episode production would begin this summer.

This isn’t the first time that Netflix has released an entire season of an original show at once. The company’s first original series, Lilyhammer, premiered its initial eight episodes all on Feb. 6, and is planning to bring the show back for a second season.

Arrested Development Is The Brothers Karamazov

This is, of course, incorrect, since AD is actually
Spoiler
The Godfather

George Sr. = Don Vito Corleone
GOB = Sonny
Michael = ... umm ... yeah.
Buster = Fredo
Lindsay = Connie
Tracey (decesased) = Apollonia (decesased)
Tobias = Merle Johnson
etc.

Arguably, the only thing even close to a problem is that Lucille is a major character, whereas Mama was not.

oh my gosh! I've been watching the original series (for the first time). I've been laughing so hard I'm afraid I'm going to wake up everyone in the house (i'm horribly nocturnal as of late). freaking hilarious!

The best part of this Netflix thing is it means eventually Arrested Development will be canceled again. :banana:

Is it canceled if it ran for how long it was slated for? (e.g., was Seinfeld canceled?)

I've watched the first three episodes of this new season and I don't know if I can watch anymore. Ugh. In our house, it may indeed be "cancelled". :(

I felt the same in the first few episodes, but it actually got better.

I'll stick it with it then. I did laugh out loud once during episode 3.

I watched all 15 episodes back to back the other day.
I did not want to take a break and forget to look out for the oter side of the many crossover scenes.
As it was there were a couple things going on in the background that I did not remember what episode that was...
I know I will have to watch them all again... but I am really OK with that.
Not as good as the first 3 seasons... but still better than most sitcoms out there.
I did not like the sigle character focus in the beginning... but the more they overlapped that started to become the most fun things about it!
I wish Buster and Maeby got more than one episode... but that is the only complaint... that it wasn't longer!

I consistently laugh my ass off when watching this (I'm about 5 episodes into Season 3), but always walk away with The Final Countdown stuck in my head because Gob inevitably ends up on a stage doing a trick an illusion. I hate that song (mostly because it's stuck in my head)!!

The problem is that the family interaction is pretty much gone, not by choice. This was mainly because of the actors' schedules. Tony Hale (Buster) was barely in this season due to his commitment to Veep.
