“Arrested Development” gets a release month and two new photos


Posted by on

In just four short months, the fourth season of “Arrested Development” will finally arrive on our virtual doorsteps. Netflix announced at the TCAs winter tour that all 14 episodes — yes, officially 14 episodes — will arrive at once online at some point in May.

To celebrate the occasion, creator Mitch Hurwitz screened a deleted scene from season four that showed Lucille Bluth using Buster to hide the fact she was smoking. Because Jessica Walters’ Lucille isn’t allowed to smoke cigarettes in this scene, she tries to hide the fact she is doing it anyways by blowing the smoke into Buster’s mouth as he blows it outside. This apparently happened over and over again until both Walters and Tony Hale broke down laughing.

The reason why Hurwitz showed a deleted scene from season four instead of an actual one is because he doesn’t want the surprise to be ruined. However, even he knows that all the hype will go away quickly when Netflix debuts the entire season on one day.

“There are going to be surprises that will be ruined by spoilers, but that would have happened anyway,” Hurwitz reportedly said. “So it’s happening maybe on one day for hard-core fans, but the stuff just now exists. It just lives out there.”

Since the rest of us weren’t present when the deleted clip was aired, we have been gifted something better: Two new images from season four. The first shows Adam DeVine as a Southwest Airlines employee serving Jason Bateman’s Michael Bluth. The second shows Michael Cera’s George Michael driving around the Bluth Company stair car. Yes, we just blue ourselves too. You can see both photos at The Playlist.

In addition to the original cast, returning supporting actors Mae Whitman, Andy Richter, Liza Minelli, Judy Greer, Ron Howard, Scott Baio and Henry Winkler will all be back, and newcomers Isla Fisher, Terry Crews, John Slattery, Conan O’Brien and the cast of “Workaholics” will join “Arrested Development” in season four.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
