‘Arrested Development’ Season 4: Netflix Leaves Blue Clues All Over Website
While we eagerly await new footage and photos from Netflix’s upcoming ‘Arrested Development‘ season 4, it seems the company prematurely shot its wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, and now has something of a mess on its hands. Literally. After littering the website with false movie titles related to the ‘Arrested Development’ universe, Netflix has developed yet another site-wide prank promoting the show’s May return. Are you ready to blue yourself? Find out the latest ‘Arrested Development clue’ inside!
Those who searched for any Netflix title with “blue” in the name were in for a surprise recently, as Netflix’s search results page seemed to have something of a mess on its hands. Said searches return with blue handprints in the margin, referencing the famed gag from ‘Arrested Development!’
Like the fake movie and TV show gag before it, clicking on the hand would take subscribers to the relevant ‘Arrested Development’ episode “The One Where Michael Leaves,” which began Tobias Funke’s “Blue Man Group” recurring gag. The blue hands are the latest in what appear to be a series of ‘Arrested’ Gags promoting the show’s May revival season, to be made exclusively available on Netflix.
‘Arrested Development’ season 4 features appearances from Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter, ‘Parks and Recreation‘s’ Ben Schwartz, ‘Up All Night’s’ Chris Diamantopoulos, all three stars of Comedy Central’s ‘Workaholics,’ ‘Mad Men’s’ John Slattery, Isla Fisher and Terry Crews, as well as returning series players Carl Weathers, Jeff Garlin, Liza Minnelli, Judy Greer, Henry Winkler and Scott Baio. Series star Michael Cera (George Michael Bluth) has also officially been added to the writing staff for the effort.
Take a look at Netflix’s blue hand gag in the photo below, and tell us what you’re most excited to see from ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 in the comments!
