There's always money in the banana stand...
The latest trailer for the second half of Arrested Development‘s fifth season has arrived – and it looks like chaos as usual for the Bluth family.
Ahead of the show’s return on March 15, the trailer shows Gob Bluth’s disastrous attempts to pull off a magic trick. Elsehwhere, Lucille Bluth shows unbridled joy at discovering PI Gene Parmesan in a typically unconvincing disguise.
Teasing what to expect, a Netflix synopsis states:”In the second half of Arrested Development’s fifth season, pressures mount on the Bluth family as Buster heads toward a murder trial.
“The Bluth company is on the hook to build a ‘smart’ border wall that puts them in debt and risks exposing a software hoax perpetrated by George-Michael. Soon the gay mafia is involved and it appears that even Michael can’t save the family this time. And Tobias becomes a Golden Girl.”
The trailer comes after the show returned for its fifth season last year on Netflix.
However, the show’s return was marred in controversy after Jessica Walter who plays Lucile Bluth in the show accused her co-star Jeffrey Tambor (George Bluth Snr) of “verbally harassing” her.
Tambor was also accused of sexual harassment that resulted in him being dropped from Amazon’s Transparent. The actor – who portrayed transgender parent Maura in Transparent – was accused of “implied inappropriate behaviour” by former assistant Van Barnes last November.
He was also accused of repeatedly making sexual propositions on set by actress Trace Lysett. Tambor has denied all wrongdoing.
In the wake of the controversy, star David Cross said that the fifth season was likely to be its last.
