The Bluths will be back just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

Netflix said it will premiere 15 new episodes of the cult hit “Arrested Development” starring Jason Bateman and Will Arnett that Sunday, May 26, on its online streaming service. With the following Monday being a holiday, fans of the show will have two full days to binge on all the new episodes.

Created by Mitch Hurwitz, “Arrested Development” follows the adventures of the dysfunctional Bluth family after their fall from grace and high society. It ran on Fox from 2003 to 2006. Although it had a loyal following and even won an Emmy for best comedy, it never became a mainstream hit.

However, the show’s popularity has soared since it went off the air thanks to DVDs and Netflix.

” ‘Arrested Development’ is now widely viewed as one of the top TV comedies of all time and Mitch Hurwitz is bringing it to Netflix in a brand-new way, crafted for the on-demand generation that has come to discover the show in the years since it last appeared on TV,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix. “The highly anticipated return of this show is sure to make history all over again.”

Hurwitz added, “We are doing something very ambitious that can only be done with Netflix as partners and on their platform.” — LATimes, Joe Flint, 4 April 2013
