More "Arrested Development" is on the way, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos announced Tuesday.

"It's just a matter of when," Sarandos told USA Today, going as far as to say he was "positive" a fifth season would be filmed as soon as the cast's schedules could be worked out. He said it was "a fair criticism" of Season 4 "that the cast didn't appear on screen often enough together."

On Thursday, Will Arnett, who plays Gob (pronounced "joeb"), confirmed to NBC's "Today" show that he and the gang were indeed onboard for a new season.

"Yeah, we are going to do more 'Arrested Development,'" he said. "It's something we all want to do, so we're excited."

Arnett, like much of the cast — including Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, and Jessica Walter — continues to have an active career in Hollywood, having most recently voiced the Batman character in "The Lego Movie."

Produced in part by Ron Howard, "Arrested Development" originally aired from 2003 to 2006 on Fox before being abruptly canceled in its third season. After the cancellation, the show's cult following continued to grow via DVD. Netflix revived the quirky sitcom by exclusively releasing a fourth season last year.

Sarandos said that Netflix has now surpassed 50 million subscribers worldwide, and has garnered 31 Emmy nominations with original programming like "House of Cards," "Orange Is the New Black," and "Derek."

In addition to the dramas, he said he would "love to do" a comedy like the megahit "Big Bang Theory" or other "classic structured" sitcom.
