Netflix Renews ‘Arrested Development’ For a 5th Season

After months of rumors Netflix has finally confirmed that it’s ordered a fifth season of the cult comedy. It seems everyone will be back includingCreator Mitchell Hurwitz, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross and Alia Shawkat — will return for the new episodes.

“In talks with Netflix we all felt that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business — and their desperate abuses of power — are really underrepresented on TV these days,” said Hurwitz. “I am so grateful to them and to 20th TV for making this dream of mine come true in bringing the Bluths, George Sr., Lucille and the kids — Michael, Ivanka, Don Jr., Eric, George-Michael, and who am I forgetting, oh Tiffany. Did I say Tiffany? — back to the glorious stream of life.”.

Netflix says the new season of Arrested Development will be released sometime in 2018.

“Arrested Development brings us structures, outerwear and choreography like no other comedy in history,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “Season four marked the first foray by Netflix into original comedy programming and this time, the Bluths will collectively be spending more quality time with their millions of fans around the world”

Arrested Development originally ran on Fox from 2003 to 2006, and won an Emmy for best comedy series in 2004. The streamer first brought back the comedy in May 2013.

    Season 1-3 fantastic, season 4 terrible. All the actors were to busy and big to commit. Really not looking forward to season 5

      I concur! I usually zoned out & did other things because it bored me.

  • Donnie

    Thought Season 4 was clever as hell. Yes, different than 1-3 but still good. And I can’t for 5! Thank you!
