It looks like fans are going to have to wait a bit longer to see the fifth season of Arrested Development in its entirety.
While eight episodes will arrive later this month on May 29th, as previously announced, the second half of the season, which also contains eight episodes, will debut sometime later this year.
Netflix has split seasons in half before, for example, with The Ranch. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will also be split in half with the first six episodes of the fourth and final season premiering on May 30th (see the trailer here) EW reckons that Netflix is making the move so that both Arrested Development and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt can be considered for Emmy season, as the deadline is May 31st.
Season 5 sees the return of the entire cast, which includes Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter, Alia Shawkat, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, and Jeffrey Tambor.
