11 years ago, Fox canceled Arrested Development. 11 YEARS! Then came that eagerly anticipated Netflix renewal in 2013 to give us a fourth season. But, it was short-lived, although rumors continued to persist more was still to come. Finally, 4 years later, we get the rumors confirmed that season 5 is indeed on its way.

While exciting, we aren’t wholly shocked, as Jason Bateman dropped this tweet last week. It was just a matter of time.
Look very probable I'm going to put some miles on the Stair Car this summer. Just officially signed on to more ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT today.

Even better, the full cast will be back: Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Bateman, David Cross, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Portia De Rossi, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, and Alia Shawkat will all return. Bad news, we’ll have to wait until 2018 for the episodes to drop to Netflix. We also don’t know anything about the storylines or even how many episodes we’ll get. But do we really care? The Bluths are coming back. ‘Nuff said.[VIA E!News]
