In addition to the new trailer, Netflix released a number of photos from the upcoming season.

Arrested Development Season 5 will debut Tuesday, May 29th on Netflix.

Along with the announcement, Netflix unveiled the season's first trailer, which gives a glimpse at where the Bluths are in 2018. He also revealed he had recut Season 4 and released it on Netflix.

In other surprising notable news from the trailer, it appears that Lindsey (Portia De Rossi) is running for office, Buster (Tony Hale) has finally ditched his hook for a more practical prosthetic hand, and Maeby (Alia Shawkat) has traded her bushy brown locks for a sleek silver hairdo.

Season four was originally released in 2013, so it's been five years since we last saw the Bluths. Another tidbit according to another secret teaser on Netflix's YouTube page is this: "The Bluths are winning the Family of the Year Award!"

Michael Bluth, the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together, tries to break ties, but we already know how that works out. It also wasn't helped by the fact that creator Mitch Hurwitz chose to try out a Rashoman-style, overlapping time periods/perspectives structure that made the season hard to follow. Season 4 created a new joke based around the Simon & Garfunkel classic Sound of Silence, with the song playing over every melancholy epiphany G.O.B. has throughout the season - and there were a lot of those. Tambor was recently fired from his starring role in Transparent in light of sexual harassment claims made against him, and some fans were surprised to see that Arrested Development hadn't followed suit. I think it's common consensus that season four was a bit of a mess, mostly due to the scheduling struggles of wrangling the illustrious cast in one place at one time.
