In an interview with Esquire, Mitch Hurwitz gave the latest update about the series, and Arrested Development will definitely be back. It is just a matter of scheduling and finding the time. He said the following:
“It’ll happen. It’ll definitely happen. Not before the election, but it’s definitely going to happen. I say that because the actors want to do it, the studio wants to do it, Netflix wants to do it, I want to do it. It’s just making it happen. There’s no one resisting. There’s a recut, too, of the fourth season, just to make it airable on TV. They’re like the old Arrested Developments. We redid all the narration and reshot a few little things. Now we have 22 episodes, and they’re delightful to watch and they’re much less work than the Netflix series. My hope is we’ll find a place to air those.”
With 22 episodes prepared, it does sound like Arrested Development could also see a sixth season of the series too. For now, the cast needs to find the time to film season five.
