Creator Mitch Hurwitz has confirmed that Arrested Development will return either as a series or a movie. Talk of a movie was put on the back burner in favor of a fourth season which aired on Netflix.
During a Q&A session at the Just For Laughs comedy festival, Hurwitz was asked if the show would be returning and he said "Definitely."
Hurwitz also admitted, however, that he's uncertain what form the next installment the show will take, NME reports.
"I keep thinking about it, and why don't we do the movie version of this and then do the series because this series kinda peaks with the story," Hurwitz explained. "I kinda go back and forth between that and a series. But here's the most important thing, whatever we do, I want to get the cast all together and not do another anthology thing. That's why I keep thinking about kicking off with a special or a three-part show and then going into a series."
Hurwitz then asked Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, who attended the Q&A session with him, if he was "game for that." Sarandos said, "Absolutely."
After a 7-year hiatus, "Arrested Development" 15 new episodes were brought to Netflix.
The new season, which kicked off May 26, received mixed reviews from critics and fans.
Will Arnett, who is set to star in the CBS sitcom "The Millers", said he would be open to returning to Arrested Development, Entertainment Weekly reports.
"I think for all of us Arrested is something that we love doing and we love working together," Arnett said.
