Netflix announces "Arrested Development" release date and increase in episodes (Credit: Netflix)

Netflix has (finally) announced the release date of the highly anticipated comeback of cult show “Arrested Development.” The fourth season (that isn’t really a fourth season) will drop on May 26, 2013, all at once. Originally set to include 14 episodes, Netflix announced Thursday that the season has added one more, bringing the total to 15.

As previously reported, each episode of the show about the dysfunctional Bluth family will focus on a single Bluth character whose narratives can be pieced together in what show creator Mitch Hurwitz has called “a very, very complex puzzle.”

If you didn’t have Memorial Day weekend plans — well, now you do. But please don’t spoil it for the rest of us.
