Another Season of ‘Arrested Development’ Could Be On the Way

Published April 30, 2014 by gossipzoo

Initially, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings called the fourth season of Arrested Development a “one-off” and that there would not be another. And while the season wasn’t exactly well reviewed it was well watched. As it turns out, Netflix does like to make money and is therefore officially “interested” in more original episodes about the Bluth family. Imagine Entertainment co-chairman Brian Grazer told Bloomberg Television: “We are in conversations with them to do another [season].”

Variety, however, tells a bit of a different story, with sources saying “that there are no active negotiations at present between Netflix and studio 20th Century Fox TV.” There is some good news, specifically that both sides “expect a renewal to come together eventually.”

The Bluth family is notoriously difficult to herd, which led to some green screen disasters in season four. Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett and Tony Hale are all currently signed on for other television shows (sorry Alia), so it could be a couple years before we can all huddle around our computer screens in the dead of night again for an early morning binge watch.

‘Arrested Development’ Will Be Back on Netflix

Published April 4, 2014 by gossipzoo

Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said there was “no question” that the Bluths will be back on Netflix. The only question is, in what format?

Sarandos was speaking at The Wrap’s The Grill conference. Though he could say that there will be more Bluth family drama on the streaming network, Sarandos left a veritable feast of 5 W’s unanswered. When? Where? (W)How? No one knows. It’s unclear whether the Bluths’ return will be as another season of Arrested Development, or the long-rumored movie. Currently Netflix is working on scheduling with the show’s cast.

“It is just a matter of when and what form it takes,” Sarandos said.
