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?
Last week saw the surprise revelation that Netflix's breakout original drama 'House of Cards' might only live through a second season in 2014, but it seems the streaming service has already lined up its next high-profile acquisition. Netflix has given a 13-episode order to a new as-yet-untitled "psychological thriller" drama from 'Damages' creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, but what's it all about?
Admittedly, the Netflix model remains something of a mystery in its longevity, but it seems the Emmy-nominated 'House of Cards' may face its end much sooner than we all expected. Season 2 has been confirmed to premiere in 2014, but might it prove the last we see of the Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright political drama?
Netflix has remained considerably tight on spoilers for the second seasons of its returning hits, notably given 'Orange is the New Black' season 2 won't come out from under lockdown until mid 2014. That said, the cast and crew were recently on hand in New York to discuss the coming season, from the expanded scope of flashbacks to the still-mysterious exit of Laura Prepon from the series.

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.
While this week has a been especially fruitful for movie series getting the TV treatment, so much so that we had to wonder if TV reboots have become the new movie remake, it seems 'Friday the 13th' has been added to the pile. This is no Friday the 13th prank (do they have those?), it seems Jason may get the 'Smallville' treatment with his very own origins TV series titled 'Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles'!
Fans of Netflix's 'Orange is the New Black' were recently dismayed to learn that series star Laura Prepon might only return for the second season in a limited capacity, writing out her character Alex Vause early on, though Netflix and Prepon's management seemed to offer conflicting reports. Now, a new investigation reveals Prepon will indeed return for 'OITNB' season 2, but possibly for even less time than originally thought.
'Elysium' may not have proven the strongest showcase for cinema icon Jodie Foster, while one her better-received works of the year may have gone entirely unnoticed.
