Arrested Development is a cult classic. Fans of the show were not happy when Fox decided to cancel it from its lineup. Then they were happy when Netflix decided to bring it back to life.
The online streaming service has since released a single season of Arrested Development. Well, it has now confirmed that Arrested Development season 5 is going to take place next year. Hooray!
Original series creator Mitchell Hurwitz is back in the driver’s seat, and the entire series cast has signed on for the fifth season. So we will be seeing Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross and the rest back in their roles as members of the Bluth family.
Fans have been waiting for confirmation from Netflix about the fifth season, so this is great news. An official confirmation is all we wanted and now we have it.
“Season 4 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,” confirmed Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer at Netflix. Expect it some time in 2018. I can’t wait.
