You may remember a TV series from the early 2000s that resurfaced on Netflix in 2013 for a fourth season, bearing the amusingly ironic title of 'Arrested Development.' People had heard of it. The understandably disjointed reunion of one of TV's most beloved casts proved somewhat unsatisfying in the end, but in a world where 'Community' hangs onto a sixth season by the skin of its teeth, surely 'Arrested Development' will reach its own inevitable movie, yes? Let's find out what 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' star and Hollywood soothsayer Will Arnett has to say on the matter!
We're just days away from the season 2 debut of Netflix's 'Orange is the New Black,' and while the streaming service hasn't offered any update on future 'Arrested Development,' we've got the next best thing. Check out the 'Orange is the New Black' opening credits remixed to match 'Arrested Development' beat for beat, with a special 'Arrested' cameo to mark the occasion!
Comedy Central's adaptation of classic FunnyorDie sketch "Drunk History" exceeded our wildest expectation across its first season, bringing in countless celebrities both to inebriatedly narrate and star in their best recollections of world events. Now that season 2 has been set for a summer 2014 debut, Comedy Central has revealed the full roster of guest stars, including some famous faces from 'The Walking Dead,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'Game of Thrones' and many, many more.
Fresh off his recent 'Community' season 5 cameo, we might have hoped 'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz would at last dig his heels into a fifth season followup to the classic cult comedy's Netflix return, or at least a movie, but for now the streaming service is at least keeping Hurwitz close. Hurwitz has officially signed to develop new original series for Netflix, leaving the future of 'Arrested Development' unclear in the process.
Just when you thought that 'Community' season 5 couldn't bear any more incredible guest stars, the NBC cult comedy will suck it up and take itself a chubby. 'Arrested Development' star David Cross is the latest 'Community' season 5 guests, but what does it have to do with 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks, or Dungeons & Dragons?
Given Netflix's relatively green status as a host of original "TV" content, we were surprised to learn that Kevin Spacey Emmy-nom 'House of Cards' might have come to an end after its second season, with the futures of other Netflix Originals equally uncertain. Now, Netflix exec Ted Sarandos has opened up on the future of the series, along with the lifespans for fellow series 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Arrested Development.'
We're not entirely sure when 'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz will get back to the business of the Bluths, but the acclaimed showrunner has at least one new course load in the future: 'Community' season 5! Following showrunner Dan Harmon's lead, Hurwitz will guest in an episode of the coming NBC season, as will noted Adult Swim comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.
Netflix's record subscriber numbers outflanking HBO has put the streaming corporation into headlines across the board of late, while inevitable talk has shifted toward future series and the potential for movie projects. 'Arrested Development' would seem to fit the bill as a candidate for the Netflix movie treatment, but what does series creator Mitch Hurwitz have to say of definitive plans for 'Arrested Development''s future?
Hard to believe that 'Arrested Development' season 4 came and went almost five months ago, but the wait continues for news of a potential fifth season or the long-awaited movie adaptation to surface. Netflix has yet to formally commit to any future content, but one major behind-the-scenes voice believes there to be "no question" the Bluths will be back on Netflix at some point in the near future.
Though speculation on 'Arrested Development''s future will never quite reach the same fever pitch as before Netflix's season 4 revival, it seems series creator Mitch Hurwitz has some surprising plans in store for our beloved Bluths. The creator has apparently committed to making a long-awaited feature film happen, before returning to the franchise for another round of TV 'Arrested Development!'
