Taste the happy!

There's always money in the "Arrested Development" banana stand, but it has lived up to its title in the past few years. We have been waiting and waiting for Season 5 to show up ... and it's finally getting close. Alia Shawkat (Maeby Funke) said Season 5 had wrapped production toward the end of 2017, with Netflix meant to release the episodes at some point in 2018.

Now narrator Ron Howard is finally hitting the recording booth to tell us the story:

But then he retweeted this:

Bro, you'd better not be lying.

"Arrested Development" originally aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006. Netflix picked it up for a fourth season in 2013. The wait for that season was also long, and the result was mixed, mostly because of the fractured structure and limited use of OG characters. The stars have just gotten too popular!

Jason Bateman did promise that the whole cast will be together in Season 5, which will include "a bit of whodunit" when it comes to the death of Liza Minnelli's Lucille 2.

Hopefully, Netflix will release a Season 5 trailer and release date very soon. In the meantime, binge-watch yourself up to date on the big mystery.
