Don't tell Michael, but Netflix just debuted the trailer for Arrested Development Season 5, Part Two. Clues will be found. Fake businesses will be sold. Secrets will be revealed. On the next Arrested Development...only on Netflix March 15.
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.
Arrested Development has traveled a long strange road. It was canceled by Fox after Season 3. But the show became a cult hit, and fans demanded more. Netflix listened, picking up the show for a 4th season. There was a long gap between the show ending in 2006 and when it finally came back in 2013. It was incredibly hard to get all of the cast members in the same room, and some of the episodes felt disconnected in that way. For Season 5, creator Mitchell Hurwitz made sure the family was fully reunited. Though, some fans didn't think the episodes were quite up to snuff.
Now, we have the second half of Season 5, and the trailer tackles the idea that some were disappointed with the first half in glorious fashion. It appears that things are back on track at the Bluth household, which means they are completely off the rails. There are some genuine laugh out loud moments in this sneak peek. And this could be the comeback we've been waiting for.
Michael and his family are back for more punishment as the mystery behind the murder of Lucille Austero continues. Arrested Development Season 5, Part Two has Buster on the run, no one has seen Lucille 2, and the wall is still unfunded. Catch up on the Bluth drama this spring break when all eight episodes of Part Two finally stream in their entirety.
Will this be the end for Michael and his family? It's always hard to tell with The Bluths. The trailer subtly hints that these may be the last episodes that we ever get. But after another break, it's possible everyone will be back. You can check out the new trailer direct from the Netflix streaming Youtube channel.
