Hot on the high heels of cliffhangers like “Who shot J.R.?” and “Who killed Laura Palmer?” (by a few decades, mind you) comes the queerest murder mystery of them all: Who killed Liza Minnelli? Before you don your black fedora and collapse in a fit of gay mourning, be aware that this unspeakable act relates to La Liza’s Arrested Development character Lucille Austero, AKA Lucille Two. Fans of the boisterously amusing sitcom, which shifted to Netflix for its fourth season, know that Lucille Two was murdered when we last saw the series.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio, series headliner Jason Bateman revealed the next story line will follow up on that devastating event. “The central spine of that story is the death of Liza Minnelli’s character, and a bit of whodunit, who may have done it, who had something to do with it,” Bateman shared. Who would kill Liza, we ask.
All we can hope is that Minnelli, who recently moved to Los Angeles after decades living in and being synonymous with New York, New York, will reprise Lucille Two for a series of flashbacks.
