First Arrested Development season 5 Netflix trailer brings the Bluths back together

Family of the year, right here on Netflix from Tuesday 29th May

After a divisive fourth season that saw the cast mostly separated, cult comedy Arrested Development is coming back for a new run – and this time, the Bluths are all together again.


In the new footage, which also confirms that season five will be released on Netflix later this month, we see the Bluths preparing for a family of the year award (that they’re giving to themselves), while Michael (Jason Bateman) tries to leave them behind for good (er, again).

Full of callbacks to the original series (the muscle suit from the family’s recreation of a classic Michelangelo painting is put to good use) and brand-new gags, the new footage is sure to put fans at ease that the new series will see a more traditional outing for the Bluths.

And if not, well, there’s always the remixed season four to try out…


Arrested Development season five will be released on Netflix on 29th May
