Arrested Development Fifth Season Release Split By Netflix

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

The Bluth family will be back on Netflix on May 29 with the premiere of Arrested Development season 5.

The first eight episodes of Arrested Development season five will land on Netflix May 29, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt beams the first six instalments of its final season on May 30.

The second half of the season, Entertainment Weekly reports, will debut later this year.

Two weeks after The Hollywood Reporter reported that the stars of the revived comedy from 20th Century Fox Television took issue with the expanded and "recut" fourth season of the Netflix comedy, the studio has agreed to pay the cast for seven additional episodes.

It's interesting that Netflix is willing to rush out the first half of these seasons in order to comply with Emmy eligibility, which seems to suggest a certain confidence in these new episodes, but it's a frustrating model for fans.

Splitting seasons in two is something of a broadcast and cable tradition nowadays. This entices viewers to binge-watch the whole series over only a few days. It's actually going to split the season into two parts and only the first part is going to be available for binge watching later this month.

Arrested Development's creator, Mitch Hurwitz, reworked an original 15-episode season, which was shot in a Rashomon-style, to make it into the standard 22-episode sitcom.

In addition to Tambor, de Rossi, Hale and Shawkat, Arrested Development also stars Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter, Michael Cera and David Cross.

Recently, we learned that Arrested Development's fifth season was going to arrive much sooner than expected - May 29th, in fact.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos assured fans previously that the season 4 standalone character format would be abandoned for season 5, with fans finding that "the Bluths will collectively [spend] more quality time" together.
