Arrested Development season 5 is official! It's just been announced that Netflix is bringing out a fifth season of the cult favourite. The new season is set to launch in 2018 and sees the original cast of Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross and Alia Shawkat, returning again.
The original series ran from 2003-2006, and Netflix decided to re-boot it in 2013. As most of the cast are super-famous, it's been tough to round them all up for filming.

The show's creator Mitchell Hurwitz, said in a press release, "In talks with Netflix we all felt that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business—and their desperate abuses of power—are really underrepresented on TV these days".
We just can't wait for more dysfunctional family drama, and of course, Michael Cera.
