Arrested Development Shocker: Buster's Arrest — for Murder of [Spoiler] — Will Kick Off Season 5

We all know Arrested Development‘s Lucille Bluth gets off on withholding — but here’s hoping she doesn’t exercise that tactic when it comes to her son’s bail money.

During an interview at TVLine’s Comic-Con video suite at the Hard Rock Hotel, Lucille’s portrayer Jessica Walter spilled exclusive intel about executive producer Mitch Hurwitz’s plan for a possible Season 5 on Netflix.

When Walter asked Hurwitz for Arrested news she could share while promoting Archer in San Diego, he had this to say: “Now that Buster has been arrested for the murder of Liza Minnelli, we’re very anxious to get this [season] started.”

Season 4, if you’ll recall, ended with Minnelli’s character, Buster’s on-again/off-again lover Lucille Austero, in a pool of blood — before her body disappeared.

Hrmmm… perhaps the latest blind item from TVLine’s scoopmaster Michael Ausiello points to an Arrested Development-How to Get Away With Murder crossover? (Tell us you wouldn’t pay to see Annalise Keating go toe-to-toe with Mama Bluth!)

  1. Given that Munch already showed up in Arrested Development, it really doesn’t fit the whole DNA thing since that proves that AD can include characters from dramas without missing a beat.

  2. Lisa Johnson says:

    Did I forget to finish watching season 4?? I don’t remember it ending like that.

  3. Et al says:

    Buster will need the best defense money can buy. I’m thinking Zuckercorn/Loblaw need to team up.

    And whatever happened to that re-cut season 4 all the entertainment sites were reporting last year?

  4. I hate AD, so leave HTGAWM, ALONE,you are only try to get craps shows more ratings…if I don’t watch a certain show, ITS BECAUSE I DON’T LIKE IT AND DO NOT APPRECIATE BEING BLACKMAILED INTO IT…I’LL QUIT HTGAWM IF YOU CONTINUE.OTHER SHOWS TAKE NOTE!!!!
