Arrested Development Could Start Filming Season 5 in 2017
Mitch Hurwitz says he's already been at work on a new season.
If there’s one thing we know about the Bluth family, it’s that you can’t keep a good Bluth down (and there’s always money in the banana stand). The same seems to be true for Arrested Development and showrunner Mitch Hurwitz, who was asked about the status of a season five during the Wednesday panel for Netflix comedy shows like Bojack Horseman and Lady Dynamite (Hurwitz is a co-creator on the latter).
According to Hurwitz, there are still a lot of details to iron out (like the availability of the cast, many of whom have different projects that could conflict with a concrete filming schedule), but it looks like they’re aiming to start shooting season five “at the beginning of 2017.”
Hurwitz said he’s also been working with a team of writers on the stories to be told in a prospective fifth season, adding, “It’s the thing I’m really desperate to do. We’ve got a lot of the stories broke and we’re ready to go.”
No further details were confirmed at the panel (after all, it wasn’t really a panel on Arrested Development to begin with), but now we know there’s more story in the pipeline just waiting to be told.
