New season of Arrested Development set to debut on Netflix in 2016

After Brian Grazer let slip that Netflix was ordering 17 more episodes of Arrested Development, the only remaining question was when and where. With the fourth season requiring some creative scheduling, editing, and use of green screen to make it a reality, it seemed the fifth season was going to be a tricky act to pull off. Now, it looks like it is ready to happen.

Grazer appeared on Adam Carolla's podcast where he revealed that Netflix is prepared to shoot the new season in January 2016 with the episodes premiering later that year. I would presume they would likely debut in the summer, but any time is possible since there is not a ton of post-production needed for the sitcom.

The unique narrative for the fourth season made it possible to watch the episodes in any order since each focused on a particular member of the Bluth family. This was necessitated by the fact not all of the actors could be on set at the same time. Some fans were left cold by the format, but I am not sure if there would be any other way to get the cast on set all at the same time. Jason Bateman is still very active directing and starring in movies while Jeffrey Tambor has been receiving critical acclaim on his other streaming series Transparent. But, more Arrested Development is better than none, right?

Outstanding!!!!

Don't care what anyone else says, Season 4 was good. The weakest season of them all, but it gets better after each new view. Love me some Arrested Development!

Not too sure about this one.

I think a lot of what was missing with S4 is the desperation and near-miss collapse of a tight timeline/schedule compared to when they were doing it on Fox. They were always on the verge of not getting things done on time back then, and that energy showed up onscreen. That, and the cast was together; no greenscreen assembly.

If next season has the same format as season 4 in that the cast isn't really together then fuck it. I've watched the first three seasons over and over, but season 4 was almost embarrassing. I couldn't even finish it.

I guess they found more money to finance another season in the banana stand.

They've made a huge mistake.

I loved the first 3 seasons but the format of the fourth didn't work for me. Less cast interaction sucked a lot of the comedic timing and pacing out of that season. I enjoyed it just not nearly as much as I had hoped. Still, any Arrested Development is better than none.

I actually think the way season 4 was written is one of the most creative things I've seen on a sitcom in a long time. Really looking forward to this.
