When the remix of “Arrested Development” Season 4 landed on Netflix Thursday afternoon, those of you who went to watch the new 22-episode version no doubt noticed something weird: the remix now occupies the slot in the list of seasons previously belonging to the original version of Season 4.

Did Netflix really just delete the original Season 4 entirely?

As it turns out, nope! They just moved it elsewhere. And it’s easy to find, in case you want to do a side-by-side comparison of the two versions of Season 4.

Step 1: Once you’re logged into Netflix, find and click on the “Arrested Development” icon.
Step 2: Select “trailers and more.”

That’s where you’ll find the original version of the season, now called “Arrested Development S4 Original Cut,” like so:

Meanwhile, we still don’t know when Season 5 lands on Netflix. But we have a sneaking suspicion it’s imminent. First, when creator Mitch Hurwitz announced on Tuesday that it was about to drop, he said it’s coming “soon. Like real soon. Like, if you knew when, you would not be wrong to be thinking ‘why are we all just hearing this now?'”

And second, because c’mon Netflix, it’s Cinco de Cuatro. Hurry it up.
