The Bluths are making a comeback! That's right, folks — Netflix is making definite plans to bring America's most dysfunctional family back to your television screens once again, according to Reuters.
Ted Sarandos, who is the chief content officer at Netflix, said there’s absolutely “no question” that 'Arrested Development' will return either in the form of new episodes or an actual movie, which has been rumored about for some time now. “It is just a matter of when and what form it takes,” Sarandos went on to explain at a conference held by 'The Wrap.'
So now the biggest issue to resolve is just the timing. Sarandos revealed that Netflix is busy working on coordinating schedules with the show's quirky (but downright lovable) cast of actors, who are currently involved with other projects. "It's still speculative," he went on to say, but they're fully committed to making it work.
Netflix resurrected the cult classic for a fourth season in May, after it was prematurely canceled by FOX back in 2006. Its long-awaited return was met with an array of lackluster reviews, but to be fair, the series had been held up on a pedestal for years. Any show would struggle to live up to such high expectations.
However, by season's end, the Bluths were pretty much back to their old selves, so as long as they can keep the momentum going, then we say bring it on! And when life gets you down, just remember: there's always money in the banana stand.
So what say you, readers? Are you happy 'AD' is once again making a comeback or do you think it's time to call it quits? Sound off on your thoughts in the comments below!
