The 5th season of Arrested Development premiered on Netflix at the end of last month, and as posted about before Isla reprised her role of Rebel Alley. This season was shorter than the previous one, and Isla appeared in 4 out of the 8 episodes – her character continued to be a source of conflict for main characters Michael (Jason Bateman) and George-Michael (Michael Cera) Bluth although her screen-time was less than last season.

HD screencaptures have been added to the Gallery, an episode guide has been written, and the filmography information page is being updated right now.

Isla announced on her Instagram page a few days ago that she is “back on Arrested Development” – she will re-join the show for their 5th season, after her guest stint on season 4 back in 2013. Season 5 started development last month, and is set to air on Netflix in 2018.

Star Jason Bateman teased the premise of the 5th season to Entertainment Weekly a few months ago, saying:

Season 5 of the quirky comedy will involve a murder mystery, Bateman teased earlier this month on EW Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), picking up with the events of season 4, which debuted on the streaming service in May 2013.

“The central spine of that story of is the death of Liza Minnelli’s character [Lucille], and a bit of whodunit, who may have done it, who had something to do with it,” Bateman explained. “That’s sort of a central thread around which [creator Mitch Hurwitz] is going to braid in all the colorful plot complications that he knows how to do.”

Unlike season 4, when episodes focused on individual characters rather than group scenes — a workaround due to cast scheduling conflicts and commitments — Bateman, who popped up in various scenes to help anchor the show, says the cast will be together for the new 15-episode season, which will debut in 2018.

Yee-haw I'm back on Arrested Development

CBS Lands Hot Gary Sanchez Comedy From Ben Schwartz & Laura Moses, Isla Fisher Comedy In Works At Gloria Sanchez

In a very competitive situation involving a four-way bidding, CBS has landed Things You Should Already Know, an ensemble single-camera comedy about millennials from Ben Schwartz (House Of Lies), Laura Moses, Gary Sanchez Prods. and CBS TV Studios.

The project is part of a first-look deal Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company has at CBS TV Studios. It already has yielded a series order, No Activity at CBS All Access. Additionally, Gloria Sanchez, the female-centric production arm of Gary Sanchez, has a premium comedy starring and executive produced by Isla Fisher in the works at CBS TV Studios. The project, to be written by Erica Rivinoja (Trolls, Girl’s Trip, South Park) and directed by Jake Szymanski (HBO’s Tour de Pharmacy, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), will be taken out in the next few months.

Things You Should Know is based on the upcoming illustrated guide to dating for millennials by Ben Schwartz and Laura Moses. The book, titled Things You Should Know About Dating, You F*ing Idiot, is set to be released this fall by Hachette Books.

Set in today’s culture of disposable love, the TV comedy — created and written by Schwartz and Moses — follows a group of millennials who realize they have to put down their phones and learn how to be actual adults if they don’t want to die alone.

Schwartz executive produces with Gary Sanchez Productions’ Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick for CBS TV Studios. Gary Sanchez exec Betsy Koch will also help guide the project for the company. The bidding for the comedy underscores how valuable IP, and especially books as source material, continue to be for getting network interest.

Schwartz was recently nominated for a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for Funny or Die’s “The Earliest Show,” which he also created. He is repped by WME, Haven Entertainment and Gang Tyre. Moses is repped by Kaplan-Stahler Agency.

Gary Sanchez/CBS Studios’ No Activity, based on an Australian format, was recently picked up by CBS All Access as the live-streaming and SVOD service’s first original comedy series. It is set to debut later this year.

Ferrell is repped by UTA and Mosaic; Adam McKay is with WME.

Whilst browsing around earlier, I came across some new information about an old project of Isla’s – a 1992 project called Clowning Around 2. I’m not clear whether this was a TV series or TV movie, but it is an Australian project about a boy who runs away from his foster home hoping to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a circus clown. Isla starred alongside Ernie Dingo, Clayton Williamson, and Francis Stawarz. This was likely Isla’s first on-screen appearance.

I’ll continue looking for more information on this and will add it to our Filmography page in time. If you have any more information on this project then please let us know! We love hearing about Isla’s old work and want to make sure our site is as comprehensive and accurate as possible, so always appreciate your help 🙂

Here are a couple of clips from the project:

Over the last few weeks I’ve been updating the site with content from Isla’s guest role in Arrested Development. Isla played Rebel Alley in season 4 of TV comedy back in 2013.

Last year Isla guest starred in the resurrected Arrested Development – the show is now set to continue next year, and we’ll keep you updated as to whether Isla will continue her involvement …

More ‘Arrested Development’ Coming to Netflix in Mid-2016, Says Producer Brian Grazer

Production will start early next year, he told the “Adam Carolla Show” Tuesday

There will definitely be more “Arrested Development,” and sooner rather than later, according to Brian Grazer.

The super-producer shared the news on Tuesday’s “Adam Carolla Show” podcast. Grazer said he spoke with Fox Studios on Monday, and everyone is on board. As a matter of fact, Grazer told Carolla that he broke the news to Mitch Hurwitz from the popular podcast’s greenroom.

“Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” he told Carolla. Production is slated to begin after Jan. 1.

Fans can expect new episodes “four months after that,” Grazer added.

The producer previously revealed that 17 episodes were in the works for the show that Netflix revived in 2013.

“Arrested Development” originally ran for three seasons on Fox from 2003-06.

Carolla tends to record his podcasts the evening before they post.
