'Arrested Development' to return May 26

When "Arrested Development" comes to Netflix this spring, it looks like the majority of you won't have to stumble bleary-eyed into the office after marathon-watching its return.

On Thursday, the streaming entertainment service announced that the resurrected series will debut online on Sunday, May 26. That's smack-dab in the middle of Memorial Day weekend, so if you do choose to watch all 15 episodes at once, chances are higher you'll be able to do so.

Like with "House of Cards," Netflix is unleashing "Arrested" in its entirety starting at 12:01 a.m. on May 26, for instant viewing. Creator Mitch Hurwitz has described the Netflix version of "Arrested" as an "anthology," with each episode being told from a particular character's viewpoint as other characters pop in and out of scenes.

Rather than looking at this new slate of episodes as a fourth season of the cult favorite series, star Jason Bateman sees it as "the first act of what we hope to continue and complete in a movie, which would be Act 2 and 3."

Netflix's "Arrested" will also have a crew of guest stars, including Seth Rogen, Conan O'Brien, Kristen Wiig, Isla Fisher and Ben Stiller, who'll reprise his role of Tony Wonder.

While the company has said in the past that it doesn't "anticipate" a second season of "Arrested" coming to Netflix, it later clarified that fans shouldn't rule out the possibility.

But for now, there are more important questions to ponder, such as: will you watch all 15 episodes in one sitting, or will you break them up like a weekly show?

    YOU'RE is a contraction of the words YOU and ARE, which is what you're trying to say there – "YOU ARE A HO." See how that works?

    I won't even get into the proper spelling of the word HO...maybe next year when you're in grade 5.

      Their Emmy nominations (and wins) say otherwise.

      AWFUL? Much like your existence and the lack of depth in humor that comes with it. Why are you even commenting on this and sharing your negative opinion. I'd love to see you say that amidst the massive cult following of this epic show and see what happens to you. Just keep your mouth shut and stick to watching CSI Miami....

    I'll be breaking the episodes up. Maybe watch one episode every couple days. It's been 10 years since the show as on the air, why spoil it all at once, better to savor the experience over a long period of time.

  39. Hey now, come on ---

    don't you be down talkin the K sisters. Keeping Up is my favorite show, way better than this has been Arrested Development which aint even real. They don't all got big fat heinies. The littlest sisters still got the nice, trim forms (they can stay that way if they don't just sit around all day talking and eating and not exercising like their older sisters).

    My favorite episode is the one where all them sisters went down to the beach in really skimpy bikinis and was playing frisbee and volleyball and wrestling. Afterwards they went home and showered then talked for about 15 minutes on how hard it was to get all that sand out of their cootchiecootchiecoos. MAAANNN! That was some GOOD TV!
