Arrested Development will be back for 17 brand new episodes, according to the show's executive producer Brian Grazer.

Season four of the revived comedy show debuted on Netflix in 2013, and in January the streaming service said it was "optimistic" about airing further episodes.

Grazer said during an appearance on The BS Report podcast: "People are loyal to it. We're going to do another 17 episodes, so stay tuned for Arrested Development."

Netflix has not yet confirmed if the 17 new episodes of the series are in the works.
