Will Arnett Confirms Fifth Season of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Planned
Netflix may not be quite ready to abandon The Bluths for good.
Will Arnett, who's currently starring on CBS' freshman sitcom THE MILLERS, spoke to Digital Spy recently, and revealed that "everybody involved in the show" is more than willing to film a fifth season on Netflix, according to The Huffington Post.
"I know that there's been a lot of talk," he said. "The truth is that we are actually just trying to figure out exactly how we're going to do it. There is a plan to do something -- I don't want to say exactly what it's going to be yet, but we are actively talking about how it's going to come together in its next form. Needless to say, we are going to continue on in telling the story of the Bluths and it will be sooner rather than later."
The series was recently revived for a fourth season with 15 new episodes, which became available concurrently on Netflix.
Arrested Development was created by Mitch Hurwitz and originally ran on FOX 2003-2006 before its unceremonious cancellation, though it has gained in popularity over the years and has become one of the most-viewed entities on all of Netflix.
The satirical series centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family comprised of his son, George Michael (Michael Cera), his father, George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother, Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers, George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett) - aka GOB - and Buster Bluth (Tony Hale), as well as his sister, Lindsay Funke (PORTIA DE ROSSI), Lindsay's husband, Tobias (David Cross), and their daughter, Maeby (Alia Shawkat).
