Arrested Development is finally coming back.
According to Variety, season 5 of the Netflix series has been confirmed by series creator Mitch Hurwitz and will debut in 2018. The original cast will also be featured; last week, Jason Bateman teased his return.
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.

Netflix’s Ted Sarandos said all the way back in 2014 that season 5 would happen, after Hurwitz said in 2013 that it would happen. In the four years since the series debuted on Netflix, the familial aspect of the series has bled into real life, so season 5 has some catching up to do. Hurwitz said as much in a statement:
In talks with Netflix we all felt that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business—and their desperate abuses of power—are really underrepresented on TV these days. I am so grateful to them and to 20th TV for making this dream of mine come true in bringing the Bluths, George Sr., Lucille and the kids; Michael, Ivanka, Don Jr., Eric, George-Michael, and who am I forgetting, oh Tiffany. Did I say Tiffany?—back to the glorious stream of life.
