Mitch Hurwitz Re-editing “Arrested Development” More Chronologically
Season 4 of Arrested Development had to deal with a lot of obstacles, one of them being the shooting schedules of its all star cast of Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, David Cross, Portia De Rossi, Jeffrey Tambor, Alia Shawkat, and Jessica Walter that after season 3 had launched into a multitude of other successful projects. Thus, many scenes in season 4 did not include the entire Bluth family together like season 1-3 and accordingly had a much different feel with many episodes focusing on a different character’s perspective in the same timeline.
Series creator Mitch Hurwitz revealed in an interview that he is now trying to recut season 4 to flow more chronologically smooth, which would presumably resemble more of the original series. However, when we’d see that on Netflix has yet to announced.
