The Bluth family was at a record low when Season 3 of “Arrested Development” ended in 2006, but it seems as though fate — or a desire for wealth — has drawn them back together again. Two more stills from Season 4, set to premiere on Netflix in May, have been released courtesy of Netflix. In one, Tobias, Lindsay and Gob are all seen squished back together on a couch in Lucille’s apartment, while Michael and Gob can be seen having a conversation in the same location in the other. Ah, just like old times.
Questions raised by these stills: Why is Tobias wearing a neck brace and seemingly meditating in these pictures, which were posted on the Netflix press site? What has Gob said to Michael this time to cause that annoyed look on his younger brother’s face? And why are the Bluth siblings (and Tobias) hanging out at Lucille’s apartment instead of at the model home? All those questions and more will be answered when all 14 episodes of the new season of “Arrested Development” air on Netflix in May.
“There is absolutely an order that we have put together to create the maximum number of surprises,” creator Mitch Hurwitz said at “Arrested Development’s” TCA panel. “But that’s just part of our storytelling. If you watch it in the order we prescribe, you’ll get to episode 4 and say ‘That’s why he did that in episode 1.'”
