AceShowbiz - After debuting almost a year ago, season 5 of "Arrested Development" is set to arrive with its second half on March 15 on Netflix. Alongside the premiere date, the streaming giant has also teased what to expect in the upcoming season 5B of Mitchell Hurwitz's sitcom about an extended family of comically terrible people.
In the new season, pressures mount on the Bluth family as Buster (Tony Hale) heads toward a murder trial. The Emmy-winning comedy will also see the Bluth company being on the hook to build a "smart" border wall that puts them in debt and risks exposing a software hoax perpetrated by George-Michael (Michael Cera). Soon the gay mafia is involved, and it appears that even Michael (Jason Bateman) can't save the family this time. And Tobias (David Cross) becomes a Golden Girl.

"Arrested Development" aired its first 8 episodes of season 5 on Netflix on May 28, 2018. The controversy surrounding star Tambor presumably explains the long delay.
The series originally ran for three seasons in 2003-2006 on FOX, before Netflix revived it for its fourth season in 2013. However, since most of the cast had become significantly more famous since 2003, it was hard to find a perfect schedule for filming, leading to season 4 which focused on individual, isolated adventures rather than collective ones.
The season received mixed reactions at best from fans. Season 5, though, brought back the cast in a more conventional ensemble.
