Given that its original run only earned three seasons, its amazing that Arrested Development came out of retirement for a fourth installment earlier this year.
And now producer Brian Grazer has shared that Netflix is in negotiations for Season Five, though nothing has been decided yet.
Grazer explained, “We are in conversations with them to do another. They are interested in doing that.”
To that end, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos added, “We would love to do more, and we have a deal in place that says that there could be. They”re very in-demand movie and TV stars, and they”re all working full-time and doing this show in between. They did it for the love of the show and for Mitch Hurwitz. If we can muster up that love again, we”d love to do it again.”
However, George Michael actor Michael Cera thinks a movie may be the answer, especially considering that creator Hurwitz has other priorities these days- “I think a film would be a little more manageable for him. He was writing and directing this season. I don”t know how he did that. He was just living and breathing it the whole 24 hours. He”s got two daughters and a wife. I think it really takes over his life for nine months or something. It”s got to be hard. A movie, I think, would be a little more livable.”
