They’ve (possibly) made a huge mistake. Rather than give fans the whole kit and caboodle this month, Netflix is splitting Arrested Development season 5 into two parts. The first eight episodes will arrive May 29, with the remaining eight episodes hitting Netflix later this year.

arrested development season 4

Mitch Hurwitz and 20th Century Fox Television may have just made a huuuge mistake. The polarizing Arrested Development season 4 “remix” was met with some confusion by fans and critics, but with mostly consternation by the cast members.

The new version of the season re-edited the episodes into shorter run times, but in the process expanded the season length to 22 episodes from the original 15-episode run. This has a few of the Arrested Development cast members arguing that they deserve extra compensation. In this case, it’s unfortunate that [Ron Howard voice]: all the footage was found.

Arrested Development season 4 remix

Here’s some good news for Arrested Development fans.

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 »
