Arrested Development Season 5

Update: Netflix has officially announced that Arrested Development is coming back for season 5. We have included the new details below. The original article follows.

Can you believe it’s been four years since Netflix brought back the canceled FOX comedy series Arrested Development for a fourth season? A revival of the show had long been discussed, and Netflix swooped in to save it from a seven-year cancellation as one of their earlier original programming endeavors. Now it sounds like real moves are being made behind the scenes to get Arrested Development season 5 off the ground. Find out the latest on the developing new season below. Read More »

arrested development season 5

There has been talk of Arrested Development season 5 since the day after season four debuted on Netflix in 2013, which means that we’ve been writing stories about how another batch of episodes is on the way for about four years now. Remember when it was definitely going to happen in 2016? And then it wasn’t? Earlier this month, we were told that season five was only a few weeks away from some kind of breakthrough.

And maybe they were serious this time? Because a new story about the basic structure of a potential fifth season of the beloved comedy series has hit the internet and it makes enough sense to feel true.

Mad Max Movie Cars

There’s a lot to love about George Miller’s Best Picture nominated action adventure Mad Max: Fury Road. Every facet of the film is impressive, but undoubtedly one of the coolest elements of the film are the post-apocalyptic vehicles that all the characters right around in. There are classic hot rods turned into fast-moving tanks, semi-trucks turned into death machines in eighteen wheels, and that vehicle with the Doof Warrior that is essentially a mobile metal concert from a Dr. Seuss nightmare.

But what if a bunch of other famous vehicles from film and television got a Mad Max makeover? What would cars like the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo or even the staircase truck from Arrested Development look like if they were modified to look like vehicles from the Wasteland? Illustrator Scott Park has answers to all those questions and plenty more with a cool new set of drawings that you can check out after the jump. Read More »

arrested development season 5

Arrested Development season 4 arrived on Netflix nearly three years ago and the jury is still out on whether or not the return of the Bluth family was a triumph, a debacle, or something in-between. Fans remain divided and bringing up a potential fifth season of the beloved show is sure to inspire a lively debate in the right crowd.

One of the biggest cheerleaders in the pro-season five camp is, naturally, series creator Mitch Hurwitz, who started banging this particular drum shortly after the fourth season and never really wavered. Arrested Development season 5 would be a pain in the rear end to make, but he says he’s still working to make it a reality.

Arrested Development Season 4

Serialized true crime stories are, as Jacobim Mugatu might say, so hot right now. WBEZ’s Serial podcast had us debating a 16-year-old murder mystery, HBO’s The Jinx left people talking for months, and now Making a Murderer is the obsession du jour for anyone with a Netflix account. Now the next example of that trend will be… Arrested Development?

Series creator Mitch Hurwitz recently spilled some Arrested Development season 5 plot details, teasing a drawn-out murder mystery and maybe some Donald Trump-inspired gags. He additionally shared one storyline that won’t be making it into the new episodes, for which we can blame Amazon’s Transparent. Finally, he revealed his hopes of getting the show on Netflix by late fall.  Read More »
