'Arrested Development' Creator Announces Show's Return By Burning Donald Trump

Taste the happy: Arrested Development will return to Netflix for its fifth season in 2018, the streaming service announced. And if there were concerns that many of Arrested Development’s running themes — the longterm effects of unchecked wealth and privilege, nepotism, corruption, persistent and comical immaturity, light treason, etc. — might be a little too on-the-nose in our current climate, the show’s creator met them with sarcasm:

“In talks with Netflix we all felt that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business ― and their desperate abuses of power ― are really underrepresented on TV these days,” Mitchell Hurwitz said in a statement.

Past Arrested Development plotlines have included Bluth family patriarch George Sr. coming under investigation for his overseas business interests and his relationship with Saddam Hussein. In the fourth season, George Sr. attempts to secure political support for buildling a wall on the border between the U.S. and Mexico.

In this author’s unimpeachable opinion, the first three seasons of Arrested Development, which originally aired on FOX, represent the pinnacle of television comedy. The fourth — the first made for Netflix — was uneven, relying perhaps a bit too much on the original series’ subtly Byzantine and often non-chronological story-telling style as it negotiated its cast members’ shooting schedules, but still contained some extremely funny moments.
