Arrested Development is coming back, yet again, to blow our minds with 17 new episodes.

Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer said in a new interview that the show's fifth season will be coming back to Netflix.

Speaking with Bill Simmons on the podcast The BS Report, Grazer nonchalantly dropped the exciting bombshell, saying, "I love Arrested Development. But it never -- it was never a huge thing. But people are loyal to it, and we’re going to do another 17 episodes. So stay tuned for Arrested Development."

Netflix has yet to officially confirm the news, and Grazer did not elaborate any further, so we don't know if what's completely locked down when it comes to when the episodes will be shot, their release dates, who's returning to the show and any other pertinent details.

All we know right now is that a bunch of new episodes are in the works, at least according to Grazer -- and that's good enough for now.

Arrested Development originally aired for three low-rated but critically acclaimed seasons on Fox from 2003-06, and found new life on Netflix when the show's brilliant fourth season debuted in 2013.

Arrested Development is just one of several TV shows in the midst of surprising comebacks. Check out the video below for a look at a number of other beloved programs to be saved from the brink of oblivion.
