Arrested Development is officially back in action. Netflix has announced that the sitcom's fifth series will air worldwide on the streaming platform in 2018. The original cast - which consists of Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, and Alia Shawka - will all return.

The news had just been a rumour for some time but now it's real. Series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, who is also returning, recently said: "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." Rejoice.
