The hit television series Arrested Development is set to stream 15 new episodes on Netflix later in the year, with an Arrested Development movie set to follow. Now, Jason Bateman, who plays Michael Bluth in the show, has been talking about how the new episodes lead up to the Arrested Development movie.
Bateman told I Am Rogue, "[The new episodes ask] a bunch of questions that then the movie answers, so it's kind of a package. Unfortunately, there's probably gonna be about a year, maybe a year-and-a-half gap between the two, so you'll end up having to watch these episodes again."
He added, "It wasn't perfectly scheduled, but we were just happy to get together as soon as we could. One doesn't really work without the other. They keep saying it's a new season, but it is actually a bunch of episodes that set up the movie."
The brand new Arrested Development episodes are set to stream on Netflix, in both the US and the UK, on May 26. Unfortunately, by the sounds of things, we have quite a wait until we get to see the Arrested Development movie.
Are you looking forward to the Arrested Development movie?
