NINJA PLEASE: Netflix Considering ‘Arrested Development’ Season 5


Though fan reaction to the original return was admittedly mixed, a new article with Brian Grazer claims execs at Netflix are currently considering another season of Arrested Development.

“We are in conversations with them to do another,” producer Brian Grazer told Bloomberg TV. “They are interested in doing that.” Joris Evers, a spokesman for the Los Gatos, California-based company, didn’t respond to a phone message and e-mail seeking comment.

Arrested Development originally aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006, but was canceled due to low ratings. After years of demands from loyal fans and fantastic DVD sales, the show announced in 2011 that it would shoot a fourth season, to air exclusively on Netflix. The entire season debuted on May 26 of this year, and as we mentioned above was met with split reviews.

I was not completely blown away by the return of Arrested Development, but felt there was more than enough fun to warrant its creation. That said, I’m not sure where the story or characters could go at this point that would offer any all that satisfactory to the audience.

Would you be on board for another round of Arrested Development? Comment below and let us know if you think it’s time for this series to come to an end.

    If they don’t find a means of tying up the loose ends of season 4, THAT would be a huge mistake.
