There’s always money in the banana stand. Arrested Development producer Brian Grazer recently revealed that Netflix has ordered another season of the beloved sitcom. According to Grazer, the streaming content provider is targeting early summer 2016 for the debut of season five. The new 17-episode season will be the first time the dysfunctional family will appear on screen since Netflix revived the show for a fourth season in 2013, which came after a nearly seven-year hiatus. Grazer said the challenge is “juggling all of these stars’ lives” now that most of the cast members have become Hollywood fixtures in their own rights. For season four, scheduling conflicts led to a disjointed storytelling style focusing on individual characters, but season five reportedly will ditch that approach.
