After five years, Arrested Development will return – yet again.
Netflix has greenlit a fifth season of the sitcom for 2018. The fourth season debuted in 2013, seven years after its original run ended on Fox.
Why another resurrection? According to series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, Netflix agreed “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.”
The entire Arrested Development cast will return, including Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Alia Shawkat – and uncredited Ron Howard (also an executive producer) as narrator.
Netflix subscribers can watch the first four seasons of Arrested Development (68 half-hours) now at netflix.com/arresteddevelopment.
