Good news for Canadian subscribers to NETFLIX if you are a fan of the Bluth family. TV’s most superbly dysfunctional family, the Bluths, are returning next year for an all new season of Arrested Development, entertaining, if not exactly edifying, Netflix members in Canada.
Arrested Development centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s husband Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat).
Netflix members in Canada can catch up with their adventures anytime by watching the first three seasons of the critically-acclaimed Fox show, which went off air in 2006 and are available exclusively on Netflix.
Since launching in Canada in September of 2010, Netflix has continued to increase the scope and quality of content available to its members. In recent months additions have included TV series like the supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries; mystery thriller Pretty Little Liars; comedy Community and Judd Apatow’s cult favorite Freaks & Geeks; as well as features like global blockbuster smash The Hunger Games (starting on December 31); Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network; We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, and the Academy Award winning The Descendants with George Clooney.
Netflix Canada has also continued to add great Canadian content, including hit family drama La Galere; comedy ‘mockumentary’ Trailer Park Boys; acclaimed documentary Amour Haine et Propagande as well as long-running series such as Dragon’s Den and Being Erica.
“With the excitement surrounding the return of Arrested Development, we are thrilled to premiere the new season of the show in Canada at the same time as we launch it in the US,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “Our Canadian members have welcomed us since our arrival and we are proud to be able to continue adding a great mix of Canadian, Hollywood and international shows and movies to our Canadian service.”
Mitch Hurwitz, Troy Miller, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo are executive producers on the upcoming fourth season of Arrested Development, and it is produced by Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox Television for Netflix
