“I love that show. It means a lot to me and it means a lot to everybody in it. Over 16 years ago is when we started that show… It’s a long period. If they ever wanted to do it, I’d certainly entertain the idea. I have no idea what’s happening, though,” she said.

Netflix’s Arrested Development revival is a great show with a lot of funny moments, but it doesn’t have the foresight of the series’ first three seasons or the intricacy of Season Four. It’s more like The Office insofar that the best parts stand independent of some grand plan and that the characters really shine. Longtime fans will be happy to see the Bluth family one last time and the season will probably feel better with time, but right now Season Five is a disappointing end to a great series.

Gob's (Will Arnett) magic trick at the parade in which he was going to swap sexuality and emerge from a closet as a heterosexual (long demented story that only this show could tell) goes awry when that closet is filled with cement, with magician Tony Wonder (Ben Stiller) inside. Now Gob is publicly stuck as gay, and his efforts to out himself as straight draw the Gay Mafia, who won't let him -- for at least another seven years, until he ages out.

Virtually everyone else in the cast stays incredibly busy, with the notable exception of Portia de Rossi, who retired from acting in 2017; she appeared only sporadically in the fifth season of Arrested Development, and would be unlikely to sign on for another full run.

A sample of these last episodes of the season — and maybe the last episodes of the series — can be previewed in the exclusive trailer above, which includes Gob (Will Arnett) making an on-brand botched grand entrance, Tobias (David Cross) dressing as a Golden Girl and matching his daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat) step-for-advanced age step; Lucille (Jessica Walter) getting flappy-hand excited for another surprise of sighting of Gene Parmesan (Martin Mull); and Michael (Jason Bateman) making a rather meta banana-stand joke.

Though some characters do still disappear for long stretches during the new season, the entire family has been rejoined, and the volatile chemistry between its members is the combustion engine that drives Arrested Development’s chaotic storylines and self-referential humor.

Furthermore, when it comes to reviewing this season, I kind of turn the review into something else, into a different topic. By, that I mean – I think we need to ask whether giving great shows more seasons ten years later will still work. It is happening all over the place, and it just hasn’t worked for Arrested Development, and it just seems like it isn’t living up to the legacy <...> - by athemoviez. - Season 5a [Adam Zenasni]
Despite my downbeat mood, an element of Arrested Development that I have always enjoyed since its birth is the family’s need to feel important, which continues in season 5 and one that continues to be glaringly obvious due to Michael’s calamitous ways of resisting such status.

After an underwhelming fourth season, “Arrested Development” returns with a fifth season that seems cheaply made up of unused leftovers. All the problems that plagued the fourth season are here: The plot is too complicated, the actors barely share any scenes together, the humor is forced, and nobody seems to want to be there (with the lone exception of Portia De Rossi, who makes a <...> - by Pop Culture Thoughts [Julien Houle] - Season 5
