The Bluths Are Back for Arrested Development's Fifth Season This Month

(Well, actually ...) Arrested Development's long-awaited season five will officially be premiering on May 29. Netflix later picked it up and released its fourth season in May 2013.

Netflix confirmed that key original cast member Jeffrey Tambor would appear in the fifth season, and we see the first footage of Tambor in the new trailer. Here's everything we know so far about Season 5. At the time, it was unclear whether Tambor's continued appearance on the show was a matter of active support by its creators, or simply due to timing and circumstance: season five was filmed a year ago, before allegations were made against Tabmor, and taking him out would have meant re-shooting or strategically editing around his scenes. To work around it, the writers focused on one character per episode, which ultimately detracted from the ensemble interacting with one another - a huge part of what makes the show so brilliant. As this Netflix (semi) original series returns on May 29th, the Bluths are back together, and finally getting the award they think they deserve - for family of the year.

The trailer finds the dysfunctional Bluth family starting a "new new beginning", and helping Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) in her campaign for Congress, much to the embarrassment of Michael (Jason Bateman).

Despite the Philippines' mended ties with China, Beijing has continued to assert its extensive claims to the disputed waterway. China claims for historical reasons numerous islands and reefs of the South China Sea.

Season 5 was first announced in 2015, but little details were released since.

Check out the trailer for Arrested Development Season 5, which manages to both give us some insight into what the new episodes will look like and offer a trip down memory lane. Buster is channeling his inner Thanos with a new metal hand. That's a good thing given that after watching this trailer below, we are probably more excited for more episodes than ever before. This release comes the week after series creator Mike Hurwitz mentioned the new season dropping "like real soon".

Netflix has also confirmed that Jeffery Tambor will be included in the show and attend promotional events for it leading up to its release, despite the sexual misconduct allegations made against the actor late past year.
