‘Arrested Development’ Season 4: New Clips and a Movie Update!
For as eager as fans of ‘Arrested Development‘ are to see the 14 original episodes debuting in their entirety on Netflix this May, perhaps more coveted is news of the revived FOX series’ fate beyond the reunion season. We’ve heard a bit of speculation on either side toward additional Netflix episodes or a potential movie, but what does series creator Mitch Hurwitz have to say, a month prior to the Netflix release? Is there, or isn’t there more ‘Arrested Development’ in our future?
We’re approximately two months away from the long-awaited debut of ‘Arrested Development’ season 4 on Netflix, but already fans are clamoring for news of a potential movie or continuation thereafter. Speaking at SXSW this weekend, series creator and executive producer Mitch Hurwitz confirmed that the episodes serve as an effective buildup for a movie, but no deal had yet been finalized with 20th Century Fox.
“I’m confident that we will succeed at that,” Hurwitz said at the panel, which also featured two new clips from the season and a bit of new opening credits. Series star Will Arnett chimed in that fans already lament future offerings, saying, “People are already mad and they haven’t even seen this.”
As for the clips shown, one of which was the same Buster/Lucille mama-birding smoke clip first shown at the January TCA press tour, while the second featured G.O.B. and Michael, as well as references to G.O.B.’s fan-favorite pill “Forget-Me-Now.”
