Arrested Development executive producer Brian Grazer has said that the fifth season of the cult comedy will arrive on Netflix in the summer of 2016.

Speaking on American comedian Adam Corolla's podcast yesterday, Grazer said that production will start in January or February of next year, with the finished product being released four months later.

Grazer also said that given that "everyone's (Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, et al.) become a star... we're gonna juggle all these schedules". Grazer also confirmied that he had made a call to series creator Mitch Hurwitz to inform him that everyone was willing to take part.

Arrested Development originally ran for three seasons from 2003 - 2006 and was revived by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013. Grazer stated earlier this year that 17 episodes would be made for the show's fifth season, an increase from season four's 15 episodes.
