After a seven year wait, Arrested Development arrives with 15 new episodes this weekend. In celebration, Hypable spoke with the cast of season 4 to talk about what challenges viewers will face.

If there was one common theme throughout our conversation with cast members including Jason Bateman and David Cross, it’s that they are not afraid to admit that there will be some serious changes that fans will have to endure.

Arrested Development season 4When asked if it’ll be easy for the viewers to digest the episodes – which do not follow a traditional television arc – lead actor Jason Bateman (who plays Michael) said there will be hurdles. “But I hope that [those challenges are] appreciated by the few people who do love the show,” he told us.

Bateman says the viewers, who’ve enjoyed keeping up with running jokes during the three seasons, are naturally interested in television that requires focus and thought. “They come back for Mitch’s dense writing – it’s incredible. The fact that Netflix affords him the opportunity for these stories to go out over 15 different episodes that are so intertwined that actual – the same scene will be in different angles from multiple episodes is a unique thing and exciting to be a part of – working with his complexity and Netflix’s distribution platform. It’s an exciting time to watch TV.”

David Cross, who plays the eccentric character Tobias, added that the viewers will learn how to watch the season after getting through the first two episodes. “This is what I’m particularly excited about after watching those first two episodes [at the premiere] – if you’re watching it, especially in chronological order, I think as you get to episode three and episode four, you’re going to realize how you’re supposed to start watching it,” he said. “I think that’s going to be really really exciting for people.”

He added that the number of back references in the new episodes are “quintuple” what you found in seasons 1 through 3. “You’re going to realize, ‘Oh there’s a stretcher to this I wasn’t aware of when I started watching.’ That’s going to be make people triple excited and will redefine what TV can be.”

Arrested Development season 4So what exactly are these additional back references? They’re caused by the fact that the entire new season follows a single storyline, but each looks at it from the perspective of a different character. Even the cast needed help keeping up with the different references from episode to episode. Said Michael Cera (who plays George Michael), “There was one scene that’s a five page scene in the computer lab, and the different sections of the scene will be appearing in different episodes. So you’d be having to play – deliver a line – that makes sense in multiple, different contexts that actually play against each other. And you have to try to make it work for all three of those. And in every episode you have different information and it means something totally different. And that was really confusing.”

With this unique storytelling, the cast encourages viewers to watch the episodes out of order but with one exception: The first two episodes must be watched first “because of the story exposition,” said Cross, but then the rest can be consumed in the alignment you please. “Mitch is numbering them on purpose, but it’s not required to watch in that order,” Bateman told us. “So you’ll start to make your own order as you’re interested in certain stories or start to kind of figure out how the whole thing is going to be about.”

Arrested Development season 4 premieres on May 26. Earlier this month we shared the first part of our Arrested Development season 4 interviews where the cast discussed what’s new and what’s the same since we last saw the show on Fox.

‘Galavant’ cast thank fans for #MoreGalavant campaign

"So just dance, dance, dance."

Galavant may have been axed over on ABC, but the fans refuse to stop the beat — and the cast are getting down to it!

There’s nothing worse than seeing your favorite show cut off in its prime, but if there’s one thing that fans do best in moments of crushing adversity, that’s come together and use their voices in a cacophony. And Galavant fans? They want a third season of their little show that could and are campaigning for it to return.

That campaign has not escaped the notice of the cast, who came together to thank the fans in a video that you can’t help but move your feet to — and the rest of your body.

“It warms the cockles of my heart to see everything you’re doing to save our beautiful little show,” Timothy Odmunson says, at the top of the video — right before it launches into Justin Timberlake’s newest hit, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” and we’re treated to a montage of familiar and brand-new footage from Galavant’s stars.

Karen David (Princess Isabella), who has also been vocal on social media about the #MoreGalavant campaign, leads the charge — and has printed out everyone’s contributions so far. But don’t worry, she planted a tree to make up for all the paper that was used. Also shaking their tush is Genevieve Allenbury, who played the Queen of Valencia throughout Galavant’s two season run.

Other familiar faces from the cast include Robert Lindsay, Ben Presley, Mallory Jansen, Vinnie Jones, and Muzz Khan. Not to mention the titular hero, Joshua Sasse.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Galavant without some cameos — and this thank you video is no exception to that. Making their debut are Billy Boyd (of Lord of the Rings fame), holding a sign that proclaims, “You can’t eat this Hobbit!” and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, with his own “Galavanterrific” sign.

And, what better way to close out the video than with an appearance from Weird Al. “Well, that should definitely do it,” he proclaims. “I can’t imagine any network not picking up this show now that it’s a hashtag campaign. Feel the power of the hashtag!”

So, Galavant fans, get signing and start dancing. And here’s hoping Tad Cooper breathes fire again — be it on the stage, or screen.

This week’s twist on Game of Thrones was one for the show’s history books, and now the fans and creators are acting on their emotions.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones found Hodor dying (dammit Bran) as he held back the army of wights by holding the door. A significant death like this one naturally became a big topic of conversation online, with fans coming up with adorable yet depressing tributes to Hodor.

For example, viewers have been creating Hodor doorstoppers:

Interestingly, we couldn’t find any Hodor doorstoppers for sale on Etsy. Get on that, people!

Others have added Hodor to the ‘hold door’ button in their local elevator

On last night’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff ‘apologized’ for killing Hodor — but not for the reason you think:

Starz has decided that their original programming can compete with the other hot shows airing on Sunday nights.

Network CEO Chris Albrecht has told THR that they are planning on moving all of their original shows including Outlander, Ash Vs Evil Dead, and Black Sails — which currently air on Saturdays — to Sundays. The move will begin July 17 with the Starz series Power. Outlander will likely not move to Sundays until next season.

“Sundays are a prestige night and we feel our shows are definitely going to be very competitive, not just in viewership but in the attention-getting business on Sundays,” Albrecht said to THR, “So it made sense to move.”

Outlander and Starz’s other original series will be going up against tough competition, including AMC’s The Walking Dead and HBO’s Game of Thrones. Albrecht says part of the reason he wanted to move the shows was to make sure they were part of the watercooler talk on Monday mornings.

THR notes that Showtime’s original series typically get DVR’d, “growing 214 percent [in viewership] during the course of a week.” This would suggest that a lot of people aren’t sitting in front of a TV on Saturdays and want to watch the shows on a different day of the week. So, moving their programming to Sundays may not impact overall viewership numbers much.

Starz recently overtook Showtime as the second-most subscribed to cable channel. HBO still sits at number one, though all three are facing tough competition from Netflix.
