Everything is dysfunctional in the Bluth household, as usual, in the trailer for the fifth season of Arrested Development.
Lindsay Bluth (actress Portia de Rossi) is running for Congress – “I want to be part of the problem,” she says – Maeby Fünke (Alia Shawkat) has a new, platinum hairdo that turns off her would-be, familial suitor, George-Michael Bluth (Michael Cera, who delivers a perfect, “Hi, I don’t like it,” when he sees her) and Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) is living with a Terminator-like bionic hand. The best scene in the trailer, though, is when Cera wears a bodysuit that’s supposed to make it look like he’s wearing muscles – that droops pathetically after he wears it into the pool.
The series is due to return via Netflix on May 29th. The entire cast – including actor Jeffrey Tambor, who was booted from his other show, Transparent, over sexual harassment claims that he calls “false accusations” – has returned for the full season.
Producer and narrator Ron Howard announced the show’s return in a statement last year. “Hell yes!” he wrote. “[I’m] warming up my uncredited narrator vocal chords. Now the only thing I will have to be coy about is all the craziness the Bluths are going to face this season.”
