'Arrested Development' Season 5, Part 2 Lands Netflix Premiere Date
After months of waiting, "Arrested Development" fans finally have a premiere date for the second half of the sitcom's fifth season.
Netflix revealed the news on Tuesday, sharing on social media that the series will be back in less than a month. The premiere date for season 5.2 is slated for March 15.
In addition to the announcement, the streaming service also shared several photos, including a poster featuring the entire cast, as well as some stills showcasing the series's signature zany antics. (Hey there, Mrs. Featherbottom!)
The rollout of this fifth season of "Arrested" has been anything but zany, though, marred by Netflix's decision to split the season in half (part one premiered way back in May of last year), as well as the misconduct allegations surrounding star Jeffrey Tambor, who was fired from Amazon series "Transparent." Tambor's bad behavior spilled over on the "Arrested" set, too, with costar Jessica Walter revealing that Tambor verbally abused her, to the point where she couldn't speak about the incident without welling up. Several of their male "Arrested" castmates then got themselves into hot water when they tried to explain away the incident, sparking immediate backlash and very quick apologies to Walter.
It remains to be seen if the remaining eight episodes will be more intriguing than all that offscreen drama. Tune in next month to find out.
