Between the mixed reviews of the new "Arrested Development" episodes and Netflix's past dancing around the topic, the chance of more episodes arriving didn't seem too likely.
But in fact, Netflix, which unleashed a 15-episode fourth season of "Arrested" to a deprived Internet on Sunday, has said that a fifth season isn't out of the question.
With 13 days left to go until Netflix unleashes the fourth season of "Arrested Development," we now have a 90-second sneak peek at what to expect.
At the premiere of the new "Arrested Development" season on Monday, the mood was so festive that star Jeffrey Tambor joked, "I'm like at my own bar mitzvah."
"We have not seen each other for a while, and when this group gets together, they get very excited," the actor told CNN, and it was true - Jessica Walter stopped mid-sentence to embrace co-star Tony Hale, later explaining after they'd caught up a bit, "I love my Tony."
Portia de Rossi is perfectly content being a TV Netflix mom.
Off-screen, however, babies just aren’t in the cards for the “Arrested Development” star and her talk show host wife of nearly five years, Ellen DeGeneres.
Jason Bateman has a crazy long resume, but the actor told CNN that he thinks "Arrested Development" was a turning point in his career.
"I wasn't doing much of anything before that show," the actor, who'll next appear in the dramatic thriller "Disconnect," said Tuesday. "I was just really fortunate that that was a show that was watched by those who hand out jobs in Hollywood. There are some shows that are big hits that are watched by middle America but not seen by Los Angeles and New York, and maybe opportunities for people on those shows are not as deep as some of the things that we were given the opportunity to do coming off of that show, so I feel very very fortunate.”
Netflix will give you the first season of "Arrested Development," but the company's less confident about what may come next.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the streaming media service isn't anticipating hosting additional seasons of the revived comedy beyond the first season its releasing in May.
