Netflix is Interested in Doing A Fifth Season of ‘Arrested Development’
Arguably one of the funniest sitcoms in the last ten years could be coming back for another season. ‘Arrested Development’ was cancelled by Fox after three seasons in 2006. In May, Netflix and Imagine Entertainment gave the series a reboot with a fourth season with all of the episodes made available at once to Netflix subscribers. Due to viewer expectations being surpassed, it looks like there is mutual interest in making season 5.
According to Bloomberg,
Netflix, the largest subscription video-streaming service, is in talks for another season of “Arrested Development,” said Brian Grazer, co-chairman of the production company, Imagine Entertainment.
“We are in conversations with them to do another,” Grazer said in an interview yesterday with Bloomberg Television at the Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley, Idaho. “They are interested in doing that.”
Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings has called “Arrested Development” and other “Netflix originals” integral to his strategy of transforming the company from a purveyor of rerun programming into a Web-based television network offering a mix of Hollywood movies and new shows, comparable to Time Warner Inc.’s HBO.
