Arrested Development: The Bluths Are Back With Season 5 Set Photo

The story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together, isn’t over yet. Arrested Development is set to start production on its fifth season for Netflix — and, according to star Jason Bateman, the family reunion begins on Aug. 8. Let the chicken dance commence!

Bateman tweeted the news with a new photo from the show’s set. It looks like Lupe better bust out the feather duster and take off the furniture plastic, because Lucille’s Newport Beach apartment is ready for its closeup.


Debuting in 2003 on Fox, the cult comedy was cancelled after three seasons, only to be revived in 2013 by Netflix for a fourth season that received mixed reviews for its detour from its traditional narrative style.

According to Bateman, this new season is the second act of a three-act story that began with the death of Liza Minnelli’s character, Lucille Austero, in Season 4. “It’s not a murder mystery per se, but that’s one of the central threads,” he explained.

There’s no confirmation just yet if the entire Bluth family will be returning. The show’s cast includes Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, David Cross, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter.

Netflix plans to release the entire fifth season sometime in 2018.
