“Arrested Development” fans could very well have reason to celebrate, with series star Jason Bateman saying he has “officially signed on to more” of the cult hit series.
Bateman tweeted on Friday: “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.”

There has been considerable buzz surrounding a new season of the comedy for quite some time with cast members and producers teasing the likelihood of Season 5, though noting that scheduling issues caused some difficulty.
The sitcom went to Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, after airing for three seasons on Fox from 2004-2006. The series never achieved significant broadcast ratings, but garnered widespread critical acclaim. It was nominated for 25 Emmy Awards, winning six.
No details on plot or structure. Let’s just hope they go back to the format of the first 3 seasons and abandon that mess of a 4th season.
