During an appearance on the Today Show on Thursday to promote his role in Michael Bay's shell-shocking new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film (which comes out this weekend), Will Arnett confirmed one of Hollywood's worst-kept secrets: The Bluth family will return to Netflix at some point in the undisclosed future. "We are going to do more Arrested Development," he told Today's social media correspondent (LOL) Carson Daly. "Ted Sarandos and Netflix kind of let the cat out of the bag on that one. It's something we all want to do, so we're excited."
Arnett is referring to comments that Sarandos, a.k.a. Netflix's chief content officer made to USA Today earlier in the week; he told the paper he was "positive" another season would happen, and that "it's just a matter of when."
You can watch the Today clip below in case you still feel like this news is an illusion (a trick is something a whore does for money).
As you're probably well aware, Netflix resurrected the comedy in 2013, seven years after Fox canceled it after three seasons. Season 4 was not as well received as those that preceded it, and even made our list of the 10 Biggest Disappointments of 2013 after it failed to live up to admittedly very high expectations.
One reason that Season 4 didn't quite hit was that its non-chronological structure often made it feel disjointed... and one reason for the non-chronological structure was that the cast members' busy schedules prevented them from filming together as an ensemble. Unfortunately, it sounds like the same thing could possibly happen again, especially with Arnett starring on CBS's The Millers, Tony Hale starring on Veep, Jeffrey Tambor starring on Amazon's upcoming Transparent, Jason Bateman doing movies, and so on.
Which brings me to this very important question: Do you still want more Arrested Development, or should we accept that what we had in the early 2000s was special and move on?
