Almost as soon as the series initially showed up on Fox, Arrested Development developed a cult following. So of course fans were upset when the network canceled the show a few years back. Then but they were ecstatic when Netflix announced that it would be making another season. Netflix followed through and launched all the episodes exclusively on its own service.
Since then fans have been wondering about a new season, but we have not heard any information. Well, now we have some news.
A new season of Arrested Development is coming. During an interview with Bill Simmons the executive producer of Arrested Development, Brian Grazer confirmed that 17 new Arrested Development episodes are being planned.
“People are loyal to it, and we’re gonna do another… 17 episodes. So stay tuned for Arrested Development,” he said.
This is the first concrete news that we’ve heard regarding the next season. We at least now it’s coming and have a firm episode count. Other details are sure to follow.
Grazer didn’t give a timeline, but at least we know there is more on the way. Hopefully very soon too. Although it does take careful planning with a large cast like this show has. Great news!
