Executive producer Brian Grazer later said everything "should be happening soon" in January of this year, but by then fans didn't know who to trust.
It was announced over a year ago that Arrested Development's fifth season was in the works, but the lack of any updates since had fans a bit anxious.
As reported by Variety, Jason Bateman's tweet was sprinkled with a little bit of in-universe Arrested Development humor. However, there's no information yet as to when fans can expect new episodes to premiere on Netflix. "We're plugging along. It's a long, complex deal", Sarandos reportedly said.
"There's always money in the banana stand".

Navy will play a second-round game on Sunday at 1 p.m. against the MA , which defeated Colorado, 12-7, in Friday's second game. Colorado (16-3), making its tournament debut in the program's fourth year of existence, gets MA (16-3) at 7.
Twentieth Century Fox Television and Netflix have yet to comment on the new season, so we'll have to see if we're actually getting those 17 episodes. Normally, "very probable" and "officially" don't go in the same announcement, and "this summer" offers only the slightest of time tables. The hope is to start shooting new episodes as early as this summer. Find out the latest on the developing new season after the jump. All of the actors are quite busy with other work, including Jason Bateman.
Are you excited that Jason Bateman has now officially joined the cast for Season 5 of Arrested Development?
Regarded-at least by its fervent fan base-as a classic, Arrested Development originally ran from 2003-2006 on Fox, following the sociopathic Bluth family after their real estate-developer patriarch is indicted for treason.
In addition to Bateman, the cast included Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter.
