Back in 2014, Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz announced that he had decided to recut the show’s fourth season Netflix revival,
abandoning its original structure — with each episode focused on a
single character — and replacing it with a version that intercuts all
the characters’ stories chronologically. It wasn’t clear at the time
whether that edit would ever be made available to the public, but today,
Hurwitz finally announced the new version’s Netflix release date: May
4th. As in, this Friday.
And, and Season 5 release date will be announced soon.
