Where to watch Arrested Development online in Australia

Alexandra Plesa 6 February 2019 NEWS

Well-acted and hilarious, Arrested Development is the underrated show you need in your life.

Arrested Development follows the Bluths, a dysfunctional and formerly wealthy family. Despite landing in financial trouble, the self-involved characters carry on living extravagant lives, often to hilarious results. The cast includes Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Henry Winkler, Tony Hale and Portia de Rossi.

The show quickly received both a cult following and critical acclaim. It originally ran in the US from 2003 to 2006, but was eventually revived by Netflix, with a fourth season launching on the platform in 2013. Season 5 followed a few years later. If you've missed out on this offbeat series, there's no time like the present to catch up.

Arrested Development on Netflix

Arrested Development was revived by Netflix and is still showing on the streaming giant. Sadly, Season 5 of the show, which was released in 2018, isn't available in Australia. It originally aired on The Comedy Channel. However, you can still catch the first four instalments of the show. Here's what's on Netflix:

  • Arrested Development Season 1
  • Arrested Development Season 2
  • Arrested Development Season 3
  • Arrested Development Season 4: Fateful Consequences

Fun fact: the original cut of Season 4 of the show, which was not particularly well-received, is actually buried on Netflix under the tab Trailers & More, so you can still watch the episodes. Season 4: Fateful Consequences is a "remix," or a new edit, with episodes more conventionally jumping from character to character.
