Season 5 of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Potentially Announced

The Bluths are back in town! Mitch Hurwitz dropped a major announcement via Twitter detailing what’s next for the Arrested Development family on Netflix. The promise of season five is closer than we think, according to Hurwitz, but no date has been announced. This comes after a five-year hiatus from the fourth season of Arrested Development premiering on Netflix after its cancellation from Fox.

Not only are we getting a fifth season, we are being gifted a season four remix on the Bluth family holiday known as, “Cinco de Quatro.” This remix was put together by Hurwitz himself, who has been behind Arrested Development since its conception back in 2003. Many fans of the show had been dissatisfied with how the fourth season was structured – focusing on one Bluth family member each episode before bringing them all together in the season finale. In an interview with Huffington Post, Jason Bateman said, “If I’m driving down the street in my episode and Gob’s going down the sidewalk on his Segway, you could stop my episode, go into his episode, and follow him and see where he’s going.” This was due to the difficulties of the filming schedules with all of the actors.

The remix of season four could give us our season five release date on Netflix since it falls in line with Hurwitz’s statement of the announcement being real soon. This announcement also comes after Jeffrey Tambor’s termination from Amazon Studios amidst sexual assault allegations. While Tambor has vehemently denied these claims, the cast of Arrested Development has stood by him. David Cross stated to Entertainment Weekly that, “I can’t speak for everybody, but I know there are a number of us who stand behind him. From the limited amount we know, we stand behind Jeffrey — and I am one of them.”

It will be interesting to see how Netflix handles Jeffrey being put back in the spotlight – regardless of whether or not his scenes in season five were filmed before he was called out. Either way, be looking for Hurwitz’s season four remix of Arrested Development this Friday on “Cinco de Quatro” and a potential season five announcement date following soon after.

What do you hope to see from Arrested Development’s new season? How do you feel about Tambor’s potential return with the season? Let us know in the comments below.
