Isla to return to “Arrested Development”

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.

“Home & Away”‘s Pippa on Isla Fisher

September 3rd 2017No Comments"Home & Away"

Debra Lawrance, the actress who played Shannon Reed’s foster mother Pippa on Home & Away, recently spoke to an Aussie outlet about her time on the show and the cast she worked closely with, including Isla:

[…] She says she doesn’t watch Home And Away often, but she does keep in touch with the actors who played Pippa’s foster children during her time on the series.

Debra and her husband, Dennis Coard (who played Pippa’s husband Michael), are still close to Kate Ritchie, who starred as Sally Fletcher for 20 years.

When Isla Fisher, who played Shannon Reed, was in Australia last year, Debra and Dennis spent a “joyful” evening with the actress and her husband, Hollywood star Sacha Baron Cohen.

“It was like no time had gone past at all,” Debra says, adding she can’t help but feel a sense of pride now that Kate and Isla have children ?of their own.

“There’s a little part of me that feels like a grandmother,” Debra laughs.

“You feel that same sense of pride as you would if you were their own mum.”
