Nine ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 posters released, Jason Bateman explains unique storytelling

Last week, Netflix announced that the new Arrested Development episodes would premiere all at once on Sunday, May 26.

Continuing to promote the highly-anticipated season 4 for fans, several posters have now been released.

The posters make references that viewers of the first three seasons are quite familiar with:

In addition, Arrested Development lead star Jason Bateman told Empire that all 15 episodes are set in the same storyline, but each episode follows a different character in that story:

“It will be extremely complicated for the viewers,” said Bateman, “14 episodes, all separate, with each character getting their own episode, but all the action happens simultaneously. So you can stop my episode at the very moment that, say, Gob rides by on his Segway and then click into his episode and follow him.”

“I don’t know how Mitchell Hurwitz wrote it, shot it or scheduled it, I don’t know how he’s editing it but it’ll be amazing. I think. And it’s only the first third of a three part story; the second two parts will be in the movie. So this is the first act, and the movie is act two and three. They’re all just asking questions that the movie itself will answer.”

We’re eager to see how this unique type of storytelling turns out, especially considering the audience is already used to a different type of process.
