Begin the (Hopefully not Final) Countdown: 'Arrested Development' Returns to Netflix

There's always money in the banana stand -- and "Arrested Development" producer Brian Grazer reveals that it's about time to open up shop once again.

The Wrap reports that while on Tuesday's "Adam Carolla Show" podcast, Grazer said that he spoke with Fox Studios and that everyone is on board for a fifth season of "Arrested Development."

"Netflix is determined to do more episodes," he told Carolla, "So we’re going to do more episodes."

Grazer said that production is slated to begin after Jan. 1, 2016, with a Netflix debut "four months after that." As reported previously (and hopefully not a trick nor an illusion), fans should expect 17 episodes to comprise the upcoming season.

A critical and cult favorite, "Arrested Development" originally ran for three seasons on Fox from 2003-2006, and was revived for a fourth season on Netflix in 2013.
