The big question no one wants to ask among the fans clamoring and eagerly awaiting return of “Arrested Development” is: does Mitch Hurwitz still have the magic? It’s been a decade since the show first went on the air (jesus, we feel old) and sometimes returning to the well, doesn’t always yield the same fruit (mixing metaphors, sorry). But if this clip is anything to by, he hasn’t lost the touch.
Yes, our very first glimpse of actual real footage from “Arrested Development” is here and it rules. In the scene, we see Lucille (the always ace Jessica Walters) get around the building’s strict no smoking policy with the assistance of Buster (Tony Hale, solid) and we’ll just let you watch how it’s done below. It’s a perfectly great re-introduction to these two, whose already too close relationship is getting pushed to new boundaries. After that, you can check out nine new character posters from the show.
If have plans already, cancel ’em — “Arrested Development” returns on May 26th on Netflix. [EW/Sensacine]
