The fourth series of Arrested Development was a seriously impressive accomplishment. Due to scheduling conflicts the actors rarely appeared together in episodes, and yet creator Mitch Hurwitz still managed to sow together a coherent and deeply layered story-arch for each character.
And yet, the fact remains that it just wasn't as funny as any of the original three series. Hurwitz tried valiantly to replace chemistry with cleverness, but didn't quite pull it off.
So fans will be glad to hear Will Arnett's statement to Business Insider that the upcoming fifth season, announced earlier this month, will be structured "much like the original".
"Sadly, Jason Bateman has agreed to do it," he said, revealing that the cast will be sharing scenes together once more.
