The Bluth family will return to Netflix just in time for "Cinco de Cuatro."
According to a recent Facebook update by series creator Mitch Hurwitz, Netflix is set to premiere the fifth season of Arrested Development very soon. An exact release date hasn't been announced yet, but the post makes it sound like the launch is imminent. In addition, Hurwitz also revealed plans to stream a new remixed, recut version of the show's fourth season starting this Friday, May 4 -- also known to the Bluth family as "Cinco de Cuatro."
Season Four of Arrested Development originally premiered on Netflix back in 2013, and featured episodes primarily dedicated to one member of the cast at a time. The idea was for a larger storyline to gradually emerge from the different perspectives as the season played out. This new version, titled Arrested Development Season 4 Remix: Fateful Consequences, has now been recut from 15 individualized stories into 22 interwoven episodes with all of the Bluths in each installment as the plot plays out in chronological order, potentially offering a fresh perspective and new jokes.

Arrested Development centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s husband Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat).
The series originally aired for three seasons on Fox before its cancellation in 2006. In addition to the new Season Four Remix and upcoming fifth season, all four previous seasons of the show are now available to stream through Netflix.
A current Netflix subscription starts at $11 for HD streaming and $14 for Ultra HD streaming.
