Good news for Arrested Development fans: You can count on Netflix to make a fifth season happen. While addressing some of the streaming network’s plans for the next few years, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos threw out a small mention of the possibility of another Arrested Development season and had this to say:
Sarandos is also “positive” that another season of Arrested Development is in the offing: “It’s just a matter of when,” he says, adding that sorting out actors’ schedules is a concern: It was “a fair criticism” of last year’s revival of the cult comedy “that the cast didn’t appear on screen often enough together.”
Arrested Development’s highly anticipated fourth season received mixed reviews due to said scheduling conflicts, which played out through each episode focusing on a different main character. In any case, Mitch Hurwitz said last year that he plans to make the Arrested Development movie before another new season on Netflix, so hopefully the next place we’ll see the Bluths together is on the big screen.
