Looks like it’s time to grab some Lucille-approved drinks and binge-watch Season 4 of “Arrested Development” all over again.
In an interview with Pretentious Film Majors, “Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz talked about the show’s challenges and revealed that he’s in the process of re-editing Season 4 of the Bluth family’s dysfunctional adventures.
“[With] the fourth season, a lot of the battles were creative — I mean, were internal, I should say, and were scheduling, and things like that,” says Hurwitz. “Right now, I’m cutting a version of season four that tells it chronologically.”
Of course, Hurwitz isn’t the first person to realize that the traditional chronological route — compared to the whole “each episode is only about one character” idea — could be beneficial to the series. In fact, back in 2013, Reddit user morphinapg took on the task of rearranging all 15 episodes of the season into 11 chronological episodes, causing people all around the world to want to jump up and shout “Steve Holt!”.
Do you think it’s smart of Hurwitz to recut the season? Will you rewatch it?
