Netflix To Release New Season Of ‘Arrested Development’, All Ten Episodes At Once

Netflix will release the newest season of ‘Arrested Development’ in 2013, premiering all ten episodes at once.

Netflix Cheif Content Officer Ted Sarandos broke the news to reporters at a National Association of Broadcasters event in Las Vegas.

Mitch Hurwitz, the show’s creator, says that he’s open to do season 5 and 6 on Netflix.

The release is exciting for obvious reasons–it’s Arrested Development–but, also because of Netflix’s unique way in premiering the show. This is not the first time Netflix has done something along these lines. ‘Lilyhammer’, an original show produced by Netflix and staring Steven Van Zandt, was released in February in the same way. The format worked well, because Netflix is coming out with a second season of the show and is releasing it the same way. Netflix has a range of other shows they have released in a similar way, shows like House of Cards and Hemlock Grove.

Netflix’s foray into uncharted territory does not mean the company is shifting its focus. It still places priority on procuring the latest and most popular movies and TV shows.

‘Arrested Development’ is unique from Netflix’s other productions because it brings a huge audience with it. In fact, the great online popularity of the show (after its initial premier) is what motivated the show’s creator to come back for another season.

We’re excited about ‘Arrested Development’ coming back, and especially excited about being allowed to indulge in seeing the entire season in one sitting
