Netflix Is Open to More Arrested Development — Are You? And How Many Eps Have You Watched?

ArrestedDevelopment_300If the funny folks behind Arrested Development decide to make more dysfunctional family magic, they’ll have at least one home at which to do so.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Wednesday said that while there are currently no official plans for a fifth “season” of the revived cult comedy (the second on the pay streaming service), it’s certainly not out of the question.

Arrested is unique because that’s really up to the talent,” Hastings shared on CNBC. “If the talent were willing to do more… I’m sure we would be willing.” (Though Netflix famously refuses to release viewership data, Hastings said that AD sampling has been “huge, just as we had hoped.”)

If what Jason Bateman recently told TVLine is any indication, the gang is in — and already planning — for more.

“This [season is] just 15 episodes that serve as Act 1 of a three-act story,” he explained during a pre-premiere interview. “Those other two acts will be in the future; whether they’re a movie or back on Netflix, I don’t know. People smarter than me will figure that out.”

So, smart people, get to figurin’!

Do you want more Bluth-y goodness on Netflix? Or should Mitch Hurwitz & Co. jump to the big screen as originally planned, to spin a more linear story? Hit the comments!
