The trailer for Arrested Development season 5 has been released online.
The hit show first aired for three series between 2003 and 2006. Netflix later revived it for a fourth season in 2013.
In the teaser, Lindsay is revealed to be running for Congress because she wants “to be part of the problem”, while the Bluths are set to receive an award for Family Of The Year. It also features references to past plotlines, including Tobias being a Never Nude, and Buster’s false hand. Watch the trailer below.
Arrested Development season 5 will premiere on Netflix on May 29. It will star Jeffrey Tambor, despite allegations of sexual misconduct being made against the actor. Tambor – who portrayed transgender parent Maura in Transparent – was accused of “implied inappropriate behaviour” by a former assistant in November. Actor Trace Lysett also claimed he had repeatedly sexually propositioned her. Tambor has denied all wrongdoing.
Meanwhile, season 4 of the show was recently re-released in a “remixed” format by Netflix. The 15-episode series followed separate characters’ perspective of the storyline over the course of each installment. Writing on the show’s Twitter page, creator Mitch Hurwitz described the season as “akin to eating some toast, then some bacon — maybe a sliced tomato followed by some turkey, and realising, ‘Hey, I think I just had a BLT.’”
On Friday (May 4), the remixed version arrived on Netflix, consisting of 22 episodes that follow a more conventional, interwoven structure. Hurwitz said he had pursued the reworking “as a comedic experiment to see if new jokes and a new perspective would emerge from a remix that features all the Bluths in every episode.”
