We're going to get more Arrested Development! We think. According to executive producer Brian Grazer, more episodes are coming. How soon? Who knows.
While speaking with Grantland, Grazer said the Bluths will return for a very specific amount of episodes on Netflix.
"We're going to do another 17 episodes," Grazer said in an interview with Bill Simmons. "So, stay tuned for Arrested Development."
Netflix has made it no secret they want a fifth season (their second season, three previous seasons aired on Fox from 2003-2006) following the Bluth family. In January 2015, Netflix's Ted Sarandos told press at TCA the return of the Bluths was imminent.
"I've been very optimistic about how it all comes together," he said about a return.
However, Netflix has yet to make it official. When reached for comment about Grazer's recent update, a rep said there was no comment at this time.
Arrested Development stars Jason Bateman stars as Michael Bluth, Will Arnett is GOB Bluth, Jessica Walter as Lucille Bluth, Portia De Rossi as Lindsay Bluth, Michael Cera as George Michael Bluth, Jeffrey Tambor as George Bluth, Alia Shawkat as Maeby Funke and David Cross as Tobias Funke. Guest stars during its run included Judy Greer, Ben Stiller, Liza Minnelli, Mae Whitman, Ed Begley Jr., Christine Taylor and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
At the end of 2014, creator Mitch Hurwitz and narrator/executive producer Ron Howard teased a recut re-release of Arrested Development season four. Netflix's first season came out in 2013 and was met with mixed reviews. Because of the cast's other commitments, the ensemble rarely appeared in the same scene together.
