It hardly seems possible that we're just five days away from the return of Arrested Development, that woefully cancelled sitcom that is returning after seven long years. All fifteen half-hour episodes of the show's fourth season will premiere on Netflix this Sunday -- an exciting prospect for the show's ever-growing fanbase.
Of course, the fact that we'll be getting season 4 all at once already has some people asking, "Is that it?" There's no doubt that season 4 will leave us wanting a season 5, but Netflix is playing its cards close to the chest and refusing to allow whether or not the show has a future beyond its fourth season.
But given that Arrested Development's viewership will likely be the highest for any original content Netflix has done, let's just assume that they're open to the idea. Is creator Mitch Hurwitz? Or the show's cast?
Answer: probably. In fact, there seem to be plans for more Arrested Development already. Obviously there's the movie that's been discussed for years now. In a press conference for the show's return, Hurwitz mentioned that a movie was still part of the plan. But, according to star Jason Bateman, it's part of a "trio" that includes season 4.
So what's the third element of that trio? Another season of the series? The show's first three seasons? The press conference yielded no answers in that regard (and why would it?), but it should at least reassure fans that even after they stay up all night to marathon the eight hours of Arrested Development season 4, they still haven't seen the last of the Bluths.
What do you think the third point of the Arrested Development trio is? Do you think there will be a season 5?
Arrested Development season 4 premieres May 26 on Netflix.
