Arrested Development Season 5: How Many Episodes Will There Be?

Get the scoop straight from the source

Kaitlin Thomas

It feels like ages since we last heard any new news regarding the fifth season of Arrested Development that Netflix has vaguely promised us on multiple occasions. You could even say the show's development has been... arrested. (So sorry, but it had to be done.)

Luckily, that's about to change. Executive producer Brian Grazer confirmed during an interview with The B.S. Report that not only is Season 5 in development, but it will likely be 17 episodes long, up from 15 in Season 4.
