The actor tweeted on Friday that he has officially signed onto more of the cult hit, which formerly aired on NBC. Sources tell Hollywood Insight that creator Mitchell Hurwitz’s deal was done weeks ago, with the writers room starting up shortly thereafter. Netflix declined to comment.
An Emmy winner for best comedy series in 2004, Arrested Development originally ran on Fox from 2003-2006. The streaming giant first brought back the comedy in May 2013. The entire nine-person ensemble returned for season four, which consisted of 15 episodes. At the time, Hurwitz said that the fourth season was just the beginning of the show’s second act.
