Arrested Development
“Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz has confirmed in Montreal that the show is “definitely” returning for the fifth season. Netflix’s chief content officer added “Absolutely, in any form.”

Hurwitz says “Whatever we do, I want to get the cast all together and not do another anthology thing, and that’s why I keep thinking about kicking off with a special or a three-part show and then going into a series.” [Source: Philly]
