Netflix Wants Another Season Of ‘Arrested Development’

Netflix willing to make more episodes of ‘Arrested Development’

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told CNBC Wednesday morning that the company would be interested in commissioning more episodes of Arrested Development if the talent was willing. Hastings stressed that commissioning more episodes of the cult favourite really came down to cast availability — a problem that held up the long awaited fourth season.

On Sunday, Netflix released 15 new episodes of Arrested Development, the sitcom last seen on Fox in 2003 that maintained a cult following to the end.

“‘Arrested’ is unique, because that’s really up to the talent. If the talent were willing to do more, and interested in that, I”m sure we would be willing,” Hastings said.

If the cast is able to get together again, it’ll be interesting to see what happens next, as the much-hyped fourth season was met with mixed reviews and seemed to set up a long-rumoured movie.

The New York Times, catching the tenor of many reviews, said Netflix had “killed” the series, while other reviewers declared that revival was truly one for the fans.

Hastings declined to release the exact numbers of how many people have streamed the show since its debut Sunday, simply saying, “It’s been huge, just as we had hoped.” He elaborated that they aren’t yet releasing numbers because “Netflix is about being able to watch when you want… So we’re really not focused on the day-one ratings, it’s really over the first year.”
