VIDEO: Arrested Development trailer is live and, oh good, it still looks funny

Oh man, you guys, it’s really happening. Rumors of a new season of “Arrested Development” — plus rumors of a still-unconfirmed movie — have been bandied about the Internet for, what, years now? And it’s finally happening. The above trailer for the fourth season just hit YouTube, and has people all kinds of amped. the eff. up. Season four’s 15 episodes will be streamed in their entirety beginning May 26 exclusively on Netflix, company that is killing it recently, by the way. Pro tip: Check out “House of Cards” and torture porn/schlock horror maestro Eli Roth’s “Hemlock Grove.”

And, thank the gods of comedy and Internet buzz, it looks like it’s still funny. (What is also funny is how few people gave a crap about this show while it was on the air and how many, many, many people became invested in it once it was gone. But such is the way of these things.)

The gang’s all here in this trailer that looks like it picks up right where it abruptly left off seven years ago — Gob, Buster, Lucille, George Michael and co. haven’t missed a beat in their knack for dysfunctional hilarity and talent for non sequiturs. Plus, the awesome Judy Greer is back as Kitty Sanchez. It’s safe to say we’re as pleased about this as the rest of the world.

Now if only the cast of ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ would make good on those long-standing prequel rumors
