Nine teaser posters for Season 4 of Arrested Development have been released. The iconography and one-liners are arguably more well-known than the plotlines when it comes to the series.  The show was built on inside jokes, which is probably one of the things that halted new viewership, especially since time-shifting and (legal) digital downloads were still in their infancy.  Now Arrested Development is returning to a brave new world where all of the episodes will be premiering at the same time, but judging by these posters, beloved gags will still get their due.  I especially like how these are all character posters but they don’t feature the actor, and some don’t even have the character’s name.

Hit the jump to check out the posters and the status of the movie according to David Cross and Jason Bateman.  All 15 episodes of Arrested Development season 4 premiere on Netflix on May 26th.

While Bateman sees the story pieces clicking together for a big screen continuation of the story, Cross is a bit more skeptical.  He tells Rolling Stone [via The Playlist],

“I don’t know. I still wonder if a movie will work. For personal, selfish reasons, I would love to do a movie,” he said adding, “…the idea of going into a theater and watching the Bluth family on a massive screen, I’m not sure if that experience will work. I think it would be weird and unsettling, but who knows.”

I know that fans will take all of the money out of the banana stand if it means getting a movie.
