Producer Brian Grazer said that the series is set to begin production for Season 5 on Jan. 1, 2016 and will return to Netflix around four months later in June, according to TheWrap.
“Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” Grazer said on Tuesday’s “Adam Carolla Show” podcast.
Grazer said that television studio behind the show, 20th Century Fox, is on board again and that he had just informed creator Mitchell Hurwitz of the news from the podcast’s green room.
