Netflix CCO Says Arrested Development Season Five Will Happen

It's just a matter of when...
If you loved the fourth, Netflix-produced season of Arrested Development--and why wouldn't you have?--then this is some good news. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos told USA Today while discussing the service's success with new content that a fifth season of the show is "just a matter of when."
When asked about a five season, he said that he's "positive" that it will happen and that they have to figure out when to fit into all the busy actors' schedules. He noted that people who weren't please that "he cast didn't appear on screen often enough together" offered a "fair criticism" of the fourth season.
The fourth season of Arrested Development, along with House of Cards and the underrated Lilyhammer, kicked off Netflix's original content slate in 2012 and 2013. The schedule has of course widened since with Hemlock Grove, Orange is the New Black, final seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and The Killing and more.
