If the hairs on the back of your neck are standing up it probably means you have Spidey-senses. It also means that the new season of "Arrested Development," available streaming instantly over Netflix, is about to drop on Sunday. We are so close to new episodes of the iconic cult series, about a family that falters during the financial crisis and must make do with each other, it's almost hard to fathom. But still – it's a reality. We've seen the bus stop posters. In preparation for the new season's launch, creator Mitch Hurwitz talked to Rolling Stone at length about the show, the potential movie, and what organizational chaos it was trying to make everything fit. Here are five things we learned from the interview.

It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks, after years of hopes, rumors, speculation and wishful thinking, a brand new season of "Arrested Development" will be here. And it won't be parceled out with an episode each week -- instead, Netflix is going to drop all 15 in one go, prompting marathon viewing across the nation, and challenging servers from coast to coast.

Seven years in the making, and honestly not something many realistic pragmatists like us thought would ever come to pass, “Arrested Development” is returning in May on Netflix with all the 15 episodes at once, so you can binge through them all in one sitting, as is the norm for big TV digestion these days. No, it’s not quite a fourth season, or at least says Jason Bateman, but it’s the continuation of the Bluth’s story some 10 years later. Entertainment Weekly’s cover story last week has an awesome breakdown of the “Arrested Development” return and how unflappable series creator Mitch Hurwitz willed it into existence with unwavering tenacity.

The big question no one wants to ask among the fans clamoring and eagerly awaiting return of "Arrested Development" is: does Mitch Hurwitz still have the magic? It's been a decade since the show first went on the air (jesus, we feel old) and sometimes returning to the well, doesn't always yield the same fruit (mixing metaphors, sorry). But if this clip is anything to by, he hasn't lost the touch.

“It’s the story of shame, cunning, thievery, dishonor, backstabbing, deceit, bold-faced lying, one-upmanship, psychological torture, lust, financial ruin, and magic, all supported by a very broad beam of dysfunctional love,” Will Arnett says about the upcoming season or batch of episodes or whatever-you-want-to-call-it of "Arrested Development." And that's just fine by us.

It's almost hard to believe that the return of “Arrested Development,” while only a month away from its May Netflix premiere, is really happening -- perhaps partly because the event's been so anticipated, and partly because so little has been revealed on its contents. Drips of info have been leaked here and there though, and with a round of cast panels and interviews over the weekend, that info has just increased.

Creator Mitch Hurwitz, Jeffrey Tambor and Will Arnett came to SXSW over the weekend to discuss the film and, most importantly, to explain the circumstances surrounding the future of the show.
