Published May 17, 2017If you've been itching for the Bluth family to return, it's official: Arrested Development is coming back to Netflix for a fifth season.
The news arrived this morning (May 17), with Variety reporting that we can expect new episodes to arrive in 2018.
The new episodes will feature the original cast, meaning Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter, Jeffrey Tambor and more will all be returning, as will creator Mitchell Hurwitz.
In a statement, Hurwitz had this to say about the show's return:
In talks with Netflix we all felt that 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. 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.
Hurwitz will serve as executive producer with Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Jim Vallely and Richie Rosenstock. Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox Television are producing for Netflix.
