Arrested Development Season 5 is in pre-production at Netflix, which means we are moving into Act 2 of creator Mitch Hurwitz’s planned three-act story of which Season 4 was Act 1. And as Jason Bateman revealed to EW Radio, this portion of the tale will be a murder mystery:
“The central spine of that story of is the death of Liza Minnelli’s character, and a bit of whodunit, who may have done it, who had something to do with it. That’s sort of a central thread around which [creator Mitch Hurwitz] is going to braid in all the colorful plot complications that he knows how to do.”
My first guess at who could be the culprit is a certain aquatic mammal broken free, which could lead to a mix-up in which Lucille Bluth is accused of offing her old rival. I’m already dizzy with the possibilities!
