'Arrested Development': The 5 best things about the new season
The return of â€śArrested Development,â€ť the cult comedy brought back to life as an exclusive series on Netflix, has many fans jumping for joy. After binge-watching the 15-episode offering, which was released at 3 a.m. EDT on May 26, we tell you the five best things about season four of â€śthe story of a family whose future was abruptly cancelled.â€ť
1. The fact itâ€™s even back
When the showâ€™s first broadcaster, Fox, pulled the plug in 2006 due to low ratings and insufficient advertiser funding, many fans were disappointed. â€śArrested Developmentâ€ť creator Mitchell Hurwitz put so much effort into creating a comedic universe of recurring jokes, brilliant wordplay, and general shenanigans. Even though the show won six Emmys, it was still axed. But as the series gained popularity through word-of-mouth and DVD sales, Netflix fulfilled the hopes and dreams of a fanbase when Ted Sarandos, the video serviceâ€™s chief content officer, announced in April 2012 that â€śArrested Developmentâ€ť would return the following year.
