Arrested Development Season 5 is finally in development. To be precise, the fifth season of TV’s greatest series is now shooting, set for release on Netflix next year. Yes, it is actually happening. And yes, we have proof!
Today, Tony Hale, who plays the mother-loving Buster Bluth, shared a set pic with his favorite mother, Lucille, played by Jessica Walter. He must have been using his good hand.

Now, that’s a pair that could still totally win Motherboy!
Prior to this, Jason Bateman, who plays Michael Bluth, shared a photo announcing production in early August, and before that Will Arnett, who plays GOB, assured fans the new season would feel more like the traditional format from the original series when it aired on Fox, not the odd, character based episodes that made up the puzzle that was Netflix’s Season 4. We know little about the fifth season, aside from the odds and ends left at the end of the last one, though Bateman also previously said this:
“It was a story that Mitchell Hurwitz hatched after the Fox episodes. There’s no plan yet to do a third act, but if this season is embraced that is definitely a possibility. One of the major stories is the death of Liza Minnelli’s character and who did it. It’s not a murder mystery per se, but that’s one of the central threads.”
I’m certainly excited for more Arrested Development, as it is the most clever writing I have ever encountered, with layered jokes, foreshadowing, and call-backs that require multiple viewings to catch. Add that to the top notch cast that play the Bluths and all their enemies (because the Bluths don’t really make for reliable friends), and baby, you got a stew going!
Arrested Development Season 5 drops on Netflix in 2018.
