Brian Grazer says 17 more episodes of Arrested Development are coming

04.07.2015

Ever since the latest run of episodes debuted on Netflix, fans of Arrested Development have been playing the waiting game as to whether we would see the further misadventures of the Bluth family on the streaming service. The fifth season has had no concrete plans in over a year despite everyone from Netflix's Ted Sarandos to cast-members saying it was coming. Now, producer Brian Grazer seems to be giving us a definitive answer.

Speaking with Grantland, Grazer dropped the following.

“I love Arrested Development but it was never a huge thing. But people are loyal to it, and we’re going to do another 17 episodes. So stay tuned for Arrested Development.”

Grazer is right in saying that the former FOX series was never a ratings powerhouse but it has done phenomenally well on DVD. The fourth season was structured oddly since it was made to fit into the busy schedules of stars Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, and Michael Cera, but everyone involved seems passionate about working together. Hopefully they find a way to make the next season happen without utilizing green screen and editing tricks which detracted somewhat from the last run of episodes.

Arrested Development currently does not have a concrete date for production or release but I wouldn't anticipate seeing until 2016 at the earliest.

Never fell in love with Season 4, it had glimpses of how great the show was. But I wasn't feeling the plot line.

I so wanted Season4 to work for me, but it didn't. It was a weird expirience.

Loved season 4

It was one long, giant episode. Plus, we were able to see what would happen if they weren't stuck together.

Good luck with your night terrors, now no one will be there to hear your screams.

Time off and the unavailability of the actors really killed the potential and energy of the fourth. I would love more seasons if the cast is able to do it as a full cast and not piece meal. Season four was watchable but nowhere near the genius of the first three.

Ehhh....

Season 4 completely lacked that off-the-cuff, frenetic genius and desperation that made the first three seasons so fun. They were always close to not getting things done on time, and that energy/panic helped the show.
I think that having years to work on Season 4 sucked out the energy. It had its moments... but overall I was bored and only truly enjoyed about an hour's worth of the whole season.
Not sure what to think of this.

Was just thinking about this literally yesterday. So excited.

The fourth season was awesome. General audiences didn't get into the first 3 seasons because it was ahead of its time. I love that season 4 gave us something different and new way to tell a story, also ahead of its time. I'm sure in a few years season 4 will be respected more like the other seasons were.

You should watch the whole fourth season, Joker

If you only watched the first episodes, you are missing all the good stuff.
I don't know if they were embracing the binge-watching nature of Netflix, but I couldn't stop watching the second half of the season. The first half is just a slow build up, with the second half being a completely incredible payoff. How everything comes together is so much fun.
Seriously man, I was on the same boat as you when I satarted watching, but I gave it a chance and I'm so happy I did.

If it's a return to the format seen in the first three seasons I'm game, but if it's more like Season 4 I probably won't be tuning in. It was really hard getting through that season.

I was a huge fan of the first three seasons, but the netflix season I didn't even finish. It wasn't the same show because they couldn't get the whole cast together for all the episodes, which was how it was for the show's original run. That's what made the show so great - having all the characters bounce off each other with the incredibly sharp writing. Hopefully for this season they can get the whole cast together.
