Rejoice! A New Series Of Arrested Development Is On The Way

Series 5 is coming to Netflix

"I think we're really close to pulling it off finally," executive producer Brian Grazer told TheWrap on Wednesday. "All of the actors have agreed to do it and I think they've agreed to their compensation structure. That's been the hardest–it's all hard… But it should be happening soon."

They'll no doubt run into some similar scheduling problems, due to how busy and bankable the cast have become. Will Arnett has recently wrapped up the Lego Batman Movie, and Alia Shawkat has earned plaudits for her role in the critically-acclaimed Search Party.
