Final countdown to new Arrested Development: An analysis of the official trailer

Posted By on Tue, May 14, 2013 at 3:09 PM

With the release of the upcoming fourth season of Arrested Development quickly approaching, diehards have found themselves desperately searching for the latest news and developments.

Arrested Development was funny — comedic genius — when it was cancelled seven years ago. Could it possibly come back and match its glory?

After watching the official trailer, it’s safe to say that this isn’t going to disappoint.

Let me expand.

First off, it takes all but 10 seconds for the trailer to feature its first inside joke. Those familiar with the show (and the horrific cornballer) will find humor as Michael burns his hand on a hot door handle.

Second, we have George Michael. That’s all I really need to say. Despite the fame Michael Cera has managed to achieve in his post-AD days, he looks just as… helpless as he did during the show’s original run. He’s rocking a short-sleeve button-up shirt just like the good ol’ days. Ah, the nostalgia.

Thirdly, he appears as though George Michael and Maeby finally have a thing. This is no longer a forbidden love à la Romeo and Juliet or Le Cousins Dangereux. Remember, gang, the series finale unveiled that they are NOT cousins. It’s totally cool for us to root for them now.

Next, we have “Final Countdown” playing in the background during the second half of the video. Not because we are now in the homestretch for the premiere of the season, but as a reference to GOB’s hilarious magic — I mean illusions.

Lastly, the stair car is back. Are they hoping for some people to hop on the Arrested Development bandwagon? How strategic.
