Netflix's 'Arrested Development' Plans Still 'Plugging Along'

It's been an excruciatingly slow slog, with talk of more "Arrested Development" dating back at least two years, but Netflix assures fans progress is being made on the fabled fifth season.

“We are plugging along,” Ted Sarandos, the streaming service’s chief content officer, told reporters at the Television Critics Association's summer tour. “It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, but also because the show is owned by Fox. … It is our intent to have a new season of 'Arrested Development.' All the negotiations are under way.”

Imagine Entertainment Co-Chairman Brian Grazer revealed in April that the plan is for 17 more episodes, adding just last month that production is targeted for the first of next year.
