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!'
Regardless of mixed fan reception to 'Arrested Development''s first original Netflix run, it seems near of every classic gag received a reprise, if not more in season 4. That said, we couldn't help notice a few stragglers like fan-favorite Franklin Delano Bluth getting left on the cutting room floor, but we can definitely expect a return in either season 5 or a movie, says creator Mitch Hurwitz!
A few weeks ago we heard the comforting, if not unexpected news that 'Arrested Development' would likely return to Netflix for a fifth installment, and now series creator Mitch Hurwitz has stepped in to all-but-confirm. Hurwitz believes the next round of 'Arrested Development' will definitely happen, but what changes from the recent fourth season will be implemented?
Fan reaction to 'Arrested Development' season 4 ran the gamut from "brilliant!" to "boring!" but there can be no denying fans of the legendarily irreverent comedy want more -- either as the long-awaited film, or another Netflix season. That wish may officially come true, as reports indicate Netflix has officially entered negotiations for another round of 'Arrested Development!'
It could be a while yet before we learn if 'Arrested Development' will continue on into a fifth season, or potentially even the long-awaited movie, but fans of the legendarily irreverent series needn't wait that long for the next been continuation of the franchise. Now, composer David Schwartz has announced that 'Arrested Development's many songs and original compositions will soon be available on a series-wide soundtrack!
