According to The Los Angeles Times, fans of Arrested Development have something to look forward to. The hit show's long-awaited fourth season will appear on Netflix early next year, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos told reporters at the National Assn. of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas on Tuesday. But it won't unfold on a weekly basis like a regular TV series; instead, Netflix will make all 10 new episodes of the cult favorite available simultaneously, as people have come to expect when they stream a TV series on Netflix.
Series creator Mitch Hurwitz was also on hand to describe a bit of what fans will see in the new episodes. As reported by Vulture, Hurwitz said that though his initial conception of the fourth season was to do it as an anthology, with each character getting his or her own episode, the current incarnation is closer to the style of the first three seasons.
The new episodes are set to start production this summer with an early 2013 debut date that hasn't been set yet.
