The rumors are true – the Bluths are officially back on Netflix this May, and we have the trailer to prove it. Arrested Development Season 5 runs for office with a first look at the new season and a full campaign website for Lindsay’s candidacy.
There was little chance of Netflix giving Jeffrey Tambor the Kevin Spacey treatment. Months after the Arrested Development star was fired from Transparent for sexual harassment, Netflix finally confirms Tambor will be back among the Bluths in Season 5.
Arrested Development hasn’t booked an official Season 5 premiere, but creator Mitch Hurwitz has the next best thing. This very Friday will see the release of a completely re-edited Season 4, undoing the Rashomon-style approach for a more traditional cut.
Netflix has been surprisingly quiet on the front of Arrested Development Season 5, but the banana stand may once again be opening. Star Henry Winkler suggests the Bluths will be back as early as this summer.
It’s been some time since we’ve had any update on Arrested Development Season 5, so leave it to Ron Howard to once again bail us out. The narrator has officially hit the recording studio, and a brief update might just hint at Season 5’s first words.
