'Arrested Development' trailer peeks at new Netflix episodes

The 90-second trailer catches up with the Bluth family seven years after we last saw them. Netflix will stream all 15 new episodes starting May 26.

Netflix subscribers eagerly awaiting the return of "Arrested Development" can see what's in store courtesy of a new promo trailer.

Posted by Netflix on YouTube Sunday, the 90-second spot briefly catches us up with each member of the Bluths, including Michael, Lindsay, Tobias, Gob, Buster, George Michael, Maeby, Lucille, and George Sr. And from the clip, it seems little has changed since we last saw the family that gives new meaning to the word dysfunctional.

Buster still seems as frightened of the world as ever. Gob is still hitting on women in the most inappropriate way possible. The marriage between Lindsay and Tobias still seems on shaky ground. And Michael is again driving a car with stairs on top. It's good to know some things never change.

Airing on Fox from 2003 to 2006 before it was ignominiously cancelled, the cult series has found new life on Netflix, which will stream all 15 episodes of the fourth season starting Sunday, May 26. Each episode will reportedly focus on a different character, though Michael, played by Jason Bateman, will be the main constant from one episode to the next.
