Arrested Development To Begin Filming Early 2017


Arrested Development creator and show-runner Mitchell Hurwitz has announced the show will begin filming its fifth season early 2017. Many fans of the sitcom hoped a new season would arrive soon after its fourth. The series was picked up by Netflix, after being dropped by FOX. Hurwitz promised a while ago that a script for season five was in the works. He recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter to give an update on its progress.

We’re very close,” he claimed. “It’s a thing I really am desperate to do. We’ve got a lot of the stories broken. We’re kinda ready to go. I’m so appreciative of the fans wanting more, I hate to tease them with information that there is going to be more until we know for sure, but it’s what we’re trying to accomplish and if does happen, it looks like shooting would be at the start of 2017. That’s what I’m hoping.”

Fans haven’t seen a new season since fifteen episodes were released on Netflix in May of 2013.
