THE BLUTHS ARE BACK. AGAIN!!!

 

‘ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT’ RETURNS TO NETFLIX

Hollywood, CA. – May 17, 2017 – The Bluths are back. Again!!! Netflix today

announced series creator Mitchell Hurwitz and the entire series regular

cast, including: Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica

Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross and Alia

Shawkat will return for a fifth season to premiere exclusively for Netflix

members worldwide in 2018.

 

“In talks with Netflix we all felt that stories about a narcissistic,

erratically behaving family in the building business — and their desperate

abuses of power — are really underrepresented on TV these days,” said

series creator Mitchell Hurwitz. He added, “I am so grateful to them and to

20th TV for making this dream of mine come true in bringing  the Bluths,

George Sr., Lucille and the kids;  Michael, Ivanka, Don Jr., Eric,

George-Michael, and who am I forgetting, oh Tiffany.  Did I say Tiffany? —

back to the glorious stream of life.”

 

“Arrested Development brings us structures, outerwear and choreography like

no other comedy in history,” mused Netflix chief content officer Ted

Sarandos, leafing through photos of the banana stand, never nudes and

Chicken Dances. “Season Four marked the first foray by Netflix into

original comedy programming and this time, the Bluths will collectively be

spending more quality time with their millions of fans around the world”

 

“Arrested Development remains one of the iconic franchises we, Ron and

Brian are asked about most,” commented Fox Television Group Chairmen and

CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman. “It’s a testament to the brilliance of

Mitch’s creation, the passion of his audience, and the love his cast holds

in their hearts for his writing and characters that we have been able to

‘get the band back together ‘ not once but twice since the Emmy-winning

original run. Get ready, America. The Bluths are coming back.”

 

“I love working with Mitch. He is a genius and the rarest of original

thinkers. He brings a richness to the characters and the storylines that

makes the series memorably fun,” said executive producer Brian Grazer.

 

“Whew! I can finally answer the question… Hell yes! Warming up my

uncredited narrator vocal chords. Now the only thing I will have to be coy

about is all the craziness the Bluths are going to face this season,” said

executive producer Ron Howard.

 

Arrested Development centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his

eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his

father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica

Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth

(Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s

husband Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat).

 

Mitchell Hurwitz, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Jim Vallely and Richie

Rosenstock are executive producers on Arrested Development, and it is

produced by Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox Television for Netflix. Arrested

Development has garnered accolades from the Academy of Television Arts &

Sciences (Emmy®), AFI, the Golden Globes, Producer’s Guild Awards, Screen

Actor’s Guild, the Television Critics Association and the Writer’s Guild,

among others.
