Cast and crew of Arrested Development attend season 5 premiere in California

The new season picks up from the reboot which served as season 4 and the first 5 epsiodes premier on Netflix on May 29.

After re-releasing the fourth season in a new “remixed” 22-episode, linear storytelling format on May 4, Netflix will premiere the much awaited fifth season of 'Arrested Development' on May 29.

In the new season of the show, Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) will run for Congress with aspirations to become "part of the problem".

This leads the family to reunite to shoot footage for her campaign videos. And the “new new beginning” sees them sticking together this time because they think they’re getting an award for “family of the year.”

But while some things have changed — Buster (Tony Hale) has a new robotic hand and Maeby (Alia Shawkat) takes on a couple of new hairdos — some things are tried and true: Michael (Jason Bateman) still threatens to leave the family for good and Tobias (David Cross) still appears to be chasing his acting dreams, this time seemingly attempting to imitate Michael while finding new ways to "blue himself".

This Thursday (17 May), the cast and crew of Arrested Development gathered at the Netflix FYSee Theater in Los Angeles, California for the premiere of the show.

In attendance were cast members Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Creator and Executive Producer Mitchell Hurwitz, Director and Executive Producer Troy Miller, Writer and Executive Producer Jim Vallely, Executive Producer Brian Grazer, guest stars John Beard, Lauren Weedman, and many more.

The first five episodes of Arrested Development Season 5 launch on Netflix on May 29.
