A fifth season of the former FOX comedy has been in the works ever since season four was released on Netflix in 2013. The cast includes Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Henry Winkler, John F. Beard, Mae Whitman, and Ron Howard (narrator).
During this week’s Television Critics Association press tour, Grazer told Deadline a season five deal is weeks away:
We are close. I think we found a way to create the compensation structure for all the actors and create a work matrix so they can still make movies and do other things and it will all integrate. So we are really close — I think within a couple of weeks at the most.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Arrested Development? Would you watch a fifth season?
