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.

    i just blue myself! This is great news.

    Please Please Please let it be the whole family again. I know they are famous and have busy schedules, but their family dynamics are what, in my opinion, made the show great. On their own, its just a story about a**holes, and speaking of a**holes, please make Michael awesome again. I hated seeing him and his George Michael at odds, and I hated seeing Michael being a jerk

      I agree with everything you said!

    • yurie says:

      That was the whole point of Season 4. When separated, Michael is no different than any of his family. With them, he is just lesser of the evils. It was amazing deconstruction.

    i always love anustart for another season of a tv show I enjoy.

  11. yurie says:

    While I wasn’t happy about the format it took last season, this was the first season of the show which lived up to the name. It was extremely dark humour and showed just how everyone in the Bluth family was stuck in “arrested development” so to speak. Can’t wait for more…

    I am so excited to hear that Arrested Development will be airing a fifth season on Netflix. Best news I’ve heard regarding TV, since Netflix aired their fourth season, in 2013.
