Arrested Development EP: Season 5 Will Debut in 2016 on Netflix

Emmy Best Comedy Nominees

Unlike Lucille Bluth, Arrested Development executive producer Brian Grazer does understand the question, and he will respond to it.

Nearly two months after Grazer confirmed a fifth season of the cult comedy, he revealed that the new episodes will likely hit Netflix in mid-2016.

“Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” Grazer told Adam Carolla on his daily podcast, adding that production will begin “after the first of the year” for a Season 5 premiere “four months after that.” (Listen to the full podcast here; Arrested Development comes up at the 1-hour-5-minute mark.)

Grazer told The B.S. Report in April that Season 5 would span 17 episodes. The series originally ran on Fox from 2003 to 2006, then was revived for a 15-episode run on Netflix in 2013.
