Fresh off his recent 'Community' season 5 cameo, we might have hoped 'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz would at last dig his heels into a fifth season followup to the classic cult comedy's Netflix return, or at least a movie, but for now the streaming service is at least keeping Hurwitz close.

We're not entirely sure when 'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz will get back to the business of the Bluths, but the acclaimed showrunner has at least one new course load in the future: 'Community' season 5!
