Grab your denim cutoffs, the Bluth Family is returning whether you like it or not.

As an Arrested Development fan, you’ve probably already seen the Season 4 trailer. When we defended the return of Arrested Development we shared the trailer for the return of the series on Netflix and we’re gonna share it again now in case you missed it.


Even if you had seen it before, are you fan enough to go out and BE a banana grabber? Or unashamed enough to prove you are a Never Nude to the public? Or brave enough to ride the stair car? Or confident enough to do the chicken dance at your biggest rival? If you follow the show’s official Twitter account (@ArrestedDev), or those of various cast members, you may be an even bigger fan. But if you live in a major metropolitan area, you may get lucky enough to participate in join the Bluth family for some fun. The first activities followed the pop-up Bluth Banana Stand, which made its debut in London before it stopped a few times in New York City, including at Columbus Circle, Yankee Stadium and finally in Times Square. Jason Bateman gave a clue the day before he was thinking to show up and, sure enough, he did—making many a fan into a banana grabber. He tossed chocolate covered bananas into the crowds alongside co-star Will Arnett on the hot early summer day. Delicious.
  


However much you enjoy the show, it might be ill-advised to rise to the level of a fan who actually behaves as the characters do. Some of them, maybe really ALL of them, just aren’t great role models. These kids probably won’t ever get jobs now that this photo is on the internet… but at least they got their chocolate covered bananas.

What was always subversive and exciting about Arrested Development was its ability to be so offbeat, so irreverent, and so clever within the confines of a 22-minute block of network TV.

In theory, it shouldn't be hard for those who care about Arrested Development's comeback to actually root for it to succeed, even as today's interconnected and advanced world is far more critical than it was a decade ago, when the Bluths first graced our TV screens.
