Netflix has been the new home for Arrested Development for a couple of years now. The streaming giant has kept one of its first few semi-originals around and has confirmed that new Arrested Development episodes will be out next month. This will be the second half of the show’s fifth season which arrives ten months after the first half.
Arrested Development originally premiered on Fox and ran from 2003 through 2006. It developed a cult following which led to Netflix reviving the show in 2013 for the fourth season. While fans appreciated the fact that Netflix had saved the show, some felt that the new episodes didn’t quite match the original episodes in terms of quality.
The story continues, nonetheless, and Netflix has been able to bring back the entire original cast which is no easy feat. The new episodes feature all members of the Bluth family. Netflix had released episodes 1-8 of season 5 on May 29th, 2018. It has been a considerably long wait for fans who wanted to know how the story progresses. Fortunately, they will be able to binge all remaining eight episodes come March 15th.
Netflix’s plot summary for the remaining episodes mentions that “The Bluth company is on the hook to build a ’smart’ border wall that puts them in debt and risks exposing a software hoax perpetrated by George-Michael,” all the while Buster heads toward a murder trial.
