Arrested Development season 5 is one of the highly anticipated series on Netflix, though the series’ return remains a mystery. Is there a chance for this American sitcom to air anytime soon?
According to Den of Geek, season 4 ended in 2013. Fox’s previous series contributed a lot when it came to Netflix’s bankable promotions. However, the said streaming media has been covering wide services these days.
With this, many are wondering if there is still a place for the said Mitchell Hurwitz directed series. In the earlier mentioned source, it has been reported that season 5 can have a take on prequel storylines of the series.
TV Line also reported that the show can feature a younger cast. Therefore, it would free up the original cast for more family scenes. Also, it would lessen difficulties in shooting schedule.

In addition, executive producer Brian Grazer also expressed his most optimistic comment in an interview.

Moreover, Hurwitz relayed that he already spent time in the writers’ room developing outline for the next installment. Not only that, the team might create one or more additional seasons. Furthermore, EP Grazer also hinted that Arrested Development season 5 will have 17 episodes.
