'Arrested Development' Spoilers: Maeby Visits George-Michael At College, Lindsay Goes On A Journey
Kristin Wiig guest stars on ‘Arrested Development’ as a young Lucille
Arrested Development’s much-anticipated fourth season was released in full on Sunday, and spoilers indicate that the comedy series will be revisiting some of its old themes while bringing new faces into the mix.
George-Michael (Michael Cera) and his unrequited love for cousin Maeby (Alia Shawkat) is still blooming in the new season when she pays him a visit at his college. With Maeby alone in his room, George-Michael puts the symbolic sock on the outside doorknob, the actors revealed to E! News.
Meanwhile, Maeby’s mother Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) desides to go on an Eat, Pray, Love-type journey to become a more complete person. “I got to do a little bit more that I got to do in the series,” de Rossi told E!. “Lindsay was very one-note, very deliberately. Because she was an idiot. She still is that person but she attempts to grow. It takes her many places. I do go on a journey I might end up where I started but at least I get out."
As for Lindsay’s husband, the sexually confused Tobias Funke (David Cross), he’ll be back in blue body paint. This time, he’s not auditioning for a spot in the Blue Man Group though. Cross gave a hint about the scene, stating, “It’s in a public restroom.”
A new face for Arrested Development fans will be SNL veteran and actress Kristin Wiig. She appears as a younger version of Bluth matriarch Lucile (Jessica Walters) opposite Seth Rogen. Apparently Wiig’s take on Lucille rivals her take on Kathy Lee Gifford.
Arrested Development’s entire 4th season is currently available on Netflix.
