New ‘Arrested’ developments
Will “Arrested Development” fans may be getting more? In an interview published Tuesday, series executive producer Brian Grazer said 17 more episodes of the comedy series are being developed.
Grazer was a guest on Bill Simmons’ podcast “B.S. Report” last month while the two were in Austin, Texas, for the South by Southwest festival. While talking about his various TV successes, including the current Fox hit “Empire,” Grazer said, “I love ‘Arrested Development,’ but it was never a huge thing. But people are loyal to it and we’re going to do another 17 episodes.”
Unfortunately, Simmons failed to follow up on that tidbit, so there’s no word on when or where the fifth season will be airing.
