17 new episodes of 'Arrested Development'

'Arrested Development' executive producer Brian Grazer has announced there will be 17 episodes in a new fifth season.

 

Grazer was chatting to Bill Simmons about the success of his latest show, 'Empire' when he dropped the news that they are doing another 17 new episodes of 'Arrested' and to 'stay tuned'. This is the first anyone has heard of this and there's also no other news, but this is great news for fans. Here's hoping the new episodes will stick to the original linear storytelling of the pre-Netflix seasons and not the confusing, single character non-linear format of the last season.
