Netflix Dividing 'Arrested Development' Season 5 in Two Parts

Netflix Dividing 'Arrested Development' Season 5 in Two Parts

This season finds Kimmy trying to do more in the world of work, with a job as the human resources person for a tech start-up. The glass-half-empty angle is basically, "But I wanted all of Arrested Development season five immediately", which - while impatient and entitled and kind of silly - is a totally understandable way to feel; Netflix binge watching has conditioned us to expect all the things, all at once. Also, Jacqueline builds her talent agency empire, but for the moment has only one client (Titus). All the while, Lillian continues to do whatever it takes to "disrupt" and "burst the paradigm".

Jane Krakowski and Tituss Burgess are returning, along with guest stars Jon Hamm, Greg Kinnear, Busy Philipps, and more.

For while we're glad to have Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) and the gang back in our lives, it also brings the knowledge that this will be the final run of episodes.

Arrested Development season 5 will be split in half

Created by Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Robert Carlock (30 Rock), who serve as executive producers with Jeff Richmond (30 Rock), David Miner (30 Rock, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Sam Means (30 Rock). Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a production of Universal Television, Little Stranger Inc., 3 Arts Entertainment and Bevel Gears for Netflix.

While that unfortunate news may come as a surprise, it's actually becoming a common occurrence with Netflix series, as comedies The Ranch and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are both splitting their upcoming seasons.

Due to some Emmys release calendar magic, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is dropping six episodes of Season 4 just in time to keep all the annual nominees eligible for 2018 consideration. The remaining seven episodes will launch at a later date.
