Would you like to know what the upcoming Netflix season of Arrested Development will be about? Why not let cast member tell you (or, rather, tell Entertainment Weekly) himself?:

“It’s the story of shame, cunning, thievery, dishonor, backstabbing, deceit, bold-faced lying, one-upmanship, psychological torture, lust, financial ruin, and magic, all supported by a very broad beam of dysfunctional love.

So basically, situation normal for the Bluth clan.

says, yeah, the new format for the show is ambitious and just crazy enough that it might work:

When Mitch [Hurwitz] started to get his arms around how all the action could happen simultaneously and there was an ability to stop one episode, start another, and have all this crossover and braided plotting, it became clear that he was going to try to accomplish something incredibly ambitious, the kind of escalation that the audience would expect from him.

So, this is all leading up to a movie, right? There better be a a movie.

EW is coming out with a print edition that will undoubtedly have more pictures and interviews with the cast, but in the meantime, here's a batch of pics from the upcoming season of the dysfunctional clan:

I truly did not think it was possible for George Michael to get any more painfully awkward than he already was, but there you have it. Just add Gob's Segway and it gets even more tragic.

All of the episodes drop on May 26th on Netflix, so stock up on your Cheetos and Mountain Dew now, because there is no way you're moving from the couch.
