Show Producers Confirm New Episodes of ‘Arrested Development’ Are on the Way
Show producers have confirmed that oddball comedy Arrested Development will be returning for a fifth season with a full cast in tow.
The TV show, which originally debuted on Fox for three seasons between 2003 and 2005 before migrating to Netflix for season four in 2013, was rumored to be returning at some point last year, only for fans to be left disappointed. This time around, it seems execs are close to securing yet another comeback for real.
“I think we’re really close to pulling it off finally,” said executive producer Brian Grazer recently in an interview TheWrap. “All of the actors have agreed to do it and I think they’ve agreed to their compensation structure. That’s been the hardest — it’s all hard … but it should be happening soon.”
Narrated by Ron Howard and starring the likes of Jason Bateman, David Cross, and Michael Cera, Arrested Development has been one of the most influential sitcoms to emerge from the ’00s. Having amassed a huge cult following, the show has racked up a number of awards over the years, including an Emmy in 2004 for “Best Comedy Series.”
Look out for more news on the potential fifth season of Arrested Development as we have it.
Meanwhile, this is why The Sopranos is still the greatest TV series of all time.
