The Bluths Are Back in New 'Arrested Development' Season 5 Trailer

The Bluths Are Back in New 'Arrested Development' Season 5 Trailer

Premiering on Netflix May 29, the new season of Arrested Development features the Bluth family way more together than they were in Season Four, and with a new, bad plan keeping them together: Lindsay Bluth is running for Congress, because she wants to be "part of the problem".

The cult classic first premiered on FOX in 2003 and struggled to find an audience large enough to keep it on the network past 2006. While the original run of the series will always be a classic, and the cast remains very talented and very amusing, I found Netflix's Arrested Development season 4 to be severely lacking.

Netflix confirmed that key original cast member Jeffrey Tambor would appear in the fifth season, and we see the first footage of Tambor in the new trailer. And we're all going to be eating frozen bananas and committing light treason sooner than you think.




Season four was originally released in 2013, so it's been five years since we last saw the Bluths. To work around it, the writers focused on one character per episode, which ultimately detracted from the ensemble interacting with one another - a huge part of what makes the show so brilliant. Netflix sent the opposite message in the THR profile: "In making and promoting seasons four and five of Arrested Development, Jeffrey has always been totally professional", chief content officer Ted Sarandos said. Lindsay is running for Congress so she can "be part of the problem", George Michael is still attempting to impress women with his muscle suit and Michael keeps trying to ditch his frightful relatives once and for all. Buster is channeling his inner Thanos with a new metal hand. We're so excited, we just blue ourselves. The Bluths will be back on May 29th!

In 2016, series creator Mitch Hurwitz said that season 5 would involve a murder mystery, although there's no real indication of that in this trailer.
