Before the long-awaited fourth season of “Arrested Development” hit Netflix this past summer, fans were already wondering what the future held for the cult TV series. Although we’re still far from seeing more of the Bluth family on (any kind of) screen, it looks like a concrete plan is forming.
Reuters reports (via Rolling Stone) that Netflix is absolutely confident that AD isn’t going anywhere, with honcho Ted Sarandos saying that it’s “no question” the series has a permanent home with the streaming giant. And while we last heard that negotiations were ongoing with creator Mitch Hurwitz, the main issue—as always—is the herculean task of bringing the insanely busy cast together again (which was what delayed this year’s reunion for so long in the first place).
Speaking with Showbiz411, Hurwitz confirmed that the much-discussed “Arrested Development” movie—which would include John Slattery’s Dr. Norman—would be next, followed by a fifth season. Best laid plans and all, so we’ll see how this turns out. But, let’s just hope we don’t have to wait another seven years to see the further misadventures of the Bluths.
