‘Arrested Development’ Season 4 Spoilers: Alan Tudyk’s Pastor Veal Returns!
Just two weeks until the premiere of ‘Arrested Development‘ season 4’s fifteen new Netflix episodes, and we’re still learning about previously unrevealed returning guest stars. Following last night’s big ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 trailer drop, some eagle (Vulture?) eyed fans have observed that ‘Firefly‘ star Alan Tudyk will reprise his role as Ann Veal’s father Pastor Veal! Let’s speculate wildly about Tudyk’s ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 role inside!
‘Arrested Development season 4 will debut all fifteen of its new episodes on May 26, but that doesn’t mean the revived comedy lacks more surprise guest stars to reveal! The latest returning character comes to us via Vulture, who observed in their examination of the trailer that Gob’s new biblical act seems to be accompanied by a horrified Pastor Veal (‘Suburgatory’s Alan Tudyk) looking on!
Tudyk only appeared as the gentle Pastor Veal in a solitary episode of the original run, though the last we saw of Ann (Mae Whitman, also returning) was the series finale revelation that she’d been dating Gob! What Pastor Veal’s presence with Gob could suggest is anyone’s guess, but we might wonder if Ann and Gob were still involved in some capacity, to have her father hanging around.
Tudyk joins the existing ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 guest roster of ‘Cougar Town‘s Busy Philipps and comedian Natasha Leggero, ‘The Office‘s’ John Krasinksi, Kristen Wiig and Seth Rogen, ‘Up All Night’ and ‘The Office‘ star Chris Diamantopoulos, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter, ‘Parks and Recreation‘s’ Ben Schwartz, all three stars of Comedy Central’s ‘Workaholics,’ ‘Mad Men’s’ John Slattery, Terry Crews and Isla Fisher, as well as returning series players Martin Mull, Ben Stiller, James Lipton, Carl Weathers, Jeff Garlin, Liza Minnelli, Judy Greer, Henry Winkler and Scott Baio.
We’ve included the trailer below for reference, while Vulture’s examination also found some other intriguing easter eggs. Only two weeks away, so tell us what you want to see from ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 in the comments!
