Netflix just confirmed a fifth season of ‘Arrested Development’
What a fun sexy time for you.
In comments to USA Today, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said he is “positive” that more episodes are in the offing. “It’s just a matter of when,” he added. The screwball sitcom’s creator and showrunner, Mitch Hurwitz, has also pledged to make season 5 a reality.
Once again, however, the ensemble cast’s many scheduling conflicts will delay production. And unlike last time, Hurwitz doesn’t want to work around these issues with a splintered “anthology” format, which irked fans who wanted to see their favorite characters share more screen time.
Because it would be more “doable” to gather everyone for a shorter film shoot, Hurwitz said, the oft-teased Arrested Development movie could happen before the next full season does. He’s also considered doing a one-off special or three-part kickoff to a longer run of episodes.
In any case, even if it’s another long wait for more, the story of a wealthy family who lost everything (and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together) seems far from over. Try not to blue yourself with excitement.
