What 'Arrested Development' on Netflix Will Be Like When It Comes Back in May

Confirming what we learned earlier on Wednesday, Netflix announced at its Television Critic's Association panel this afternoon that Arrested Development will come to Netflix in May, with all episodes being released at the same time in a move that will appeal to binge watchers.

It's confirmed! #ArrestedDevelopment. 14 Episodes. May. Only on Netflix. #TCA13

We're updating this post as we hear more from the cast on the panel, but creator Mitch Hurwitz told USA Today that "the show will look very different." Each episode will only focus on one character, with Jason Bateman, who plays Michael Bluth the only actor to appear in all episodes.

Having all episodes available at the same time though convenient for couch potatoes has the potential to break Twitter, as Ryan McGee pointed out: 

Just realized people will live tweet their #ArrestedDevelopment viewing experiences. Thus will start World War Twitter.
