ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: REMIX Release Date Announced

- Advertisement -

According to the official Arrested Development Twitter, creator Mitch Hurwitz has recut season four of the cult classic and will be available on Netflix starting May 4th. Hurwitz announced the release in a letter to the “viewer” (his parentheses, not ours) yesterday.

The letter announced that season five is coming “Like real soon. Like, if you knew when, you would not be wrong to be thinking ‘why are we all just hearing this now?’”. After the show was abruptly cancelled in 2006, there was on-again, off-again talk of a movie. But the movie never materialized, and fans, for the most part, gave up on a continuation for the Bluth family.
Finally, in 2013, Season Four premiered on Netflix. All 15 episodes dropped at once via the streaming service. The unfamiliar format, which told a season’s worth of story in pieces, divided fans. Each episode was dedicated to one character’s perspective of the same events, and the puzzle didn’t come into focus until the end. While some fans loved the experiment, it turned others away.

Hurwitz has recut this controversial season to jive more with the original storytelling style. The remix, titled Fateful Consequences, will put season four back in chronological order. Hurwitz says the result is “…funny in a whole new way and I believe it creates a really entertaining and hilarious new experience for the ‘viewer.’” In other words, it encourages rewatching the series without actually giving us any new content. Instead of 15 full-length episodes, Fateful Consequences has 22 twenty-minute installments.

Come On!

While several of the series’ original actors have come up against scrutiny, there is no word on how it will effect their characters, if at all. Season four Fateful Consequences premieres on “Cinco de Cuatro”, a Bluth family traditional holiday. No official date has been announced for season five.[easy-tweet tweet=”Season four Fateful Consequences premieres on “Cinco de Cuatro”, a Bluth family traditional holiday.
