In addition to the core cast returning, guest stars on tap for the revival include Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Liza Minnelli (aka Lucille 2), Conan O’Brien, John Slattery (Mad Men), Chris Diamantopoulos (24), Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers) and Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris).

  • I have no interest in Netflix, so I’m looking forward to hearing when these episodes will be released on DVD.

    • Maybe never, if you really want to see them, do the one month free trial starting May 26, and then cancel has soon as you’ve seen the episodes.

      • Oh no! You think they won’t come out on DVD? How will I complete my AD set?

        • Don’t worry, I’m sure the new episodes will come out on DVD once the online viewings have dropped off – they’d be missing out on a huge potential audience otherwise. For some reason people inside the bubble of new technology always seem to assume that everybody else is too.

    • No interest in Netflix? How is that even possible?

      • No intrest in Netflix because hulu and amazon prime are a hundred times better. But the free trial is a good idea though
