If you haven’t jumped onto the Netflix wagon yet, now is as good a time as any. Classic episodes of Doctor Who, tons of films, original series are just a few examples of why the service beats DSTV soundly with a crowbar and leaves that overpriced corpse to rot in the sun.
And of course, there’s Arrested Development, a resurrection of the cult comedy that was worth the seven year wait. of course, it took a helluve lot of blood, sweat and tears to get the show back on internet air. And Netflix wants more.
Backing off from an earlier stance where they weren’t so keen to make more episodes, it looks like Netflix and Mitch Hurwitz may have had too much content on their hands for the initial 15 episode run, leaving them in a decent position to start another season for the show.
Speaking to Bloomberg news, producer Brian Grazer ‘fessed up the details. “We are in conversations with them to do another,” he said. “They are interested in doing that.” While its fantastic to see interest in reviving the show yet again, it doesn’t mean that anything concrete is going to happen. Yet. The biggest challenge though, is getting the entire cast back together. It’s an ensemble show certainly, and with Jason Bateman being particularly busy with acting and directing commitments, it’s a hurdle of note.
Season 4 has been fantastic, with episodes focusing on single characters and running for as long as they need to. I’d gladly renew my Netflix subscription for a fifth season.
