‘Arrested Development’ returns to Netflix in 2018
Arrested Development is coming back for a fifth season. Netflix announced that it’ll premiere next year on the streaming service and that “the entire series regular cast” will be involved as well. That includes Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter — collectively known as The Bluth family. Hopefully they’ll all be on-set simultaneously and the show will flow a little more naturally this time.
Last week Bateman tweeted that he’d just signed on to put a few more miles on the perpetually corrupt family’s stair car, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that shooting would potentially start this summer.
Will this bring the show’s first three seasons back to Netflix so fans can dive back into Wee Britain and all of Gob’s huge mistakes before the season five premiere? That isn’t clear at the moment. Right now, all that’s available is the Netflix-produced fourth season. You could say that the company blue itself with that move.
Now the story of a wealthy family, and the one streaming service that had no choice but to keep them all together. @arresteddev S5. 2018. pic.twitter.com/sn9jKH2hYp
