What Are the Chances of Another Season of ‘Arrested Development’?

Sep 12, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Jessica Walter, who’s one of the stars of the beloved on-again, off-again comedy series “Arrested Development,” had encouraging words Sunday about the chances for another season.

Deadline.com quotes Walter saying backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys, “It’s looking real good.” She added: “I don’t have dates, but everybody is on board.”

The series was canceled by Fox back in 2007, but came back to life six years later on Netflix.

“Talk of an ‘Arrested Development’ season five has been brewing since the 15-episode fourth season on Netflix landed in 2013, but went into overdrive in April of last year when series co-creator Brian Grazer claimed that 17 more episodes were planned,” Deadline reports. “He followed that up two months later saying that production on the new series would begin at the start of 2016, with Netflix to air the new episodes before year’s end.”

That forecast apparently was a bit too optimistic. The logistics behind the show are challenging, with its ensemble cast made up largely of actors who have other projects in the works.
