Now the story of a show that lost everything and the one streaming service that had no choice but to keep it together, again.

Netflix is reportedly "positive" that "Arrested Development" is coming back for Season 5, according to Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. Though the timing of the show is unclear, Sarandos said, "It’s just a matter of when,” reports USA Today.

The CCO went on to add that getting a schedule that works for everyone may be the biggest challenge and criticism over the amount of time the cast spent on screen together in the latest season was "fair."

After premiering Season 4 in 2013, Netflix immediately said it was open to more seasons, with show creator Mitch Hurwitz reportedly interested in revisiting the series as well.

So get ready, "AD" fans! The Bluths are coming back!

UPDATE: In an interview with "Today's" Carson Daly, Will Arnett confirmed "Arrested Development" is coming back, saying, "Ted Sarandos and Netflix kind of let the cat out of the bag on that one. It's something we all want to do so we're excited," according to Mashable.
