Arrested Development season 5 will be split in two

Eric Liebowitz  Netflix

According to Entertainment Weekly, the first eight episodes will drop on May 29 as previously planned. The first eight episodes will be released on May 29 but the next eight will be released later, but it's not clear if that will be in 2018 or if it'll be pushed into 2019.

This is a strategy Netflix has adopted for some of its shows recently, such as The Get Down, The Ranch and the final season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

"The original season four of Arrested Development on Netflix, as some of you know, experimented with a Rashomon-style of storytelling - with each episode dedicated to the adventure of one member of the Bluth family", Hurwitz explained. No word has been given as to why the series is being split in two, especially as there was no indication of such a move with the release of the trailer and premiere date, but presumably they aren't done finalizing the whole season due to the busy schedules of its large cast.

This isn't an uncommon practice for Netflix comedies, or for network and cable shows either who split up their seasons all the time. Netflix is dividing "Arrested Development" Season 5 into two halves. The first halves of "Arrested Development" and "Kimmy Schmidt" will make it just in time for Emmy consideration for this television year.

In addition to Tambor, de Rossi, Hale and Shawkat, Arrested Development also stars Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter, Michael Cera and David Cross.
