On that note, here’s a Buzzfeed article that tells you “How to Get Instantly Alerted The Second “Arrested Development” Shows Up on Netflix” — just text “ANN” to 619-EGG-VEAL.

Now, for the love of God, close your notebook and go re-watch Season 2 of AD on Netflix.

10 o’clock list: Arrested Development Lines You Should Use In Everyday Conversation

Kenyon students had the following to say about this sensational news:

“WHAT!”

“I’m not sure how I feel about this. What if it’s bad? … Wait, it’s not gonna be bad; it’s gonna be amazing!”

“I really hope this isn’t just an illusion…”
