People everywhere rejoiced on Sunday when the 15-episode fourth season of Arrested Development was FINALLY released on Netflix.
But creator Mitch Hurwitz knows better than anyone that for every AD fan, there's a hater out there. So he wrote a letter to EVERYONE and posted a pic to the show’s Facebook page just hours before the series debuted on Sunday at midnight. The letter read:
"To our friends, fans, supporters, detractors, haters, enemies, and arch enemies,
I'm writing on behalf of everyone who has worked so hard to bring back a show that's very special to us to say thank you for your ardent support of this show with the exception of the haters, detractors, etc.
We are also grateful for another chance to bring these characters to life and could not have dones so without your consistent effort to "spread the word" about it. Although obviously in the case of the enemies, the words you spread were "don't watch this show!" You know I probably shouldn't have even included them in the salutation — but I'm writing this in ink + making all sorts of mistakes. Did you notice the "s" at the end of the word "done"?
Anyway — it's been our great joy to bring this to you on Netflix where you can access it whenever and however you want.
Except, you know, it's really meant to be watched in order.
And you really should watch them all — because they build and, I'm just saying "eventually." If you can. All 15.
But really this is yours now.
Except for the obvious copyright issues. And you have to subscribe to Netflix.
So it's not completely yours I guess.
I'm not going to write in ink anymore.
lovedon’t know you,
Creator: Arrested Development"
A handwritten note is so rare these days, so this was a very special salutation from Mitch, and we’re sure Arrested Development fans loved it!
And even the haters love a shout out now and then. LOLz!
Did U check out the new season yet?
