Mitch Hurwitz Says That Arrested Development Will “Definitely” Be Back

Arrested Development

Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz was asked at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal if the show would be returning and he answered “definitely”, as reported by Chortle.

He then turned to Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, and said

I don’t want to get into a whole negotiation right now… but I’ve got a family to feed.

He then went on to say,

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, and that’s why I keep thinking about kicking off with a special or a three-part show and then going into a series.

He then asked  if he was “game for that?” and Sarandos replied, “Absolutely… In any form.”

I’m not sure I”m convinced that definitely means definitely here. More like, it’s very likely. Or, we both definitely want it to return and we’re absolutely going to try to make that happen.

There are a lot of spinning plates here after all. Sarandos and Netflix could well put up the money and provide a platform, and Hurwitz could have a script ready to shoot but if the actors aren’t in then what will they be left with.

It also sounds a little like the next Arrested Development material that we see will be a movie rather than a series, with Hurwitz’ comments on their previous attempts to make a movie suggesting a future one,

…part of it was us stalling a little bit, too, waiting to see if the right idea came to us. And I think it has. We have it basically, we have the next step.

The latest season of Arrested Development was a difficult undertaking due to the actors’ schedules and led to a number of green screen scenes and some creative and unfortunately not-so-creative writing to work around their availability.

There were a lot of visible cracks in the latest season, including some horrendous ADR, so hopefully if more Arrested Development does happen it’s not quite so limited by circumstance.
