Netflix Considering More Arrested Development
The Bluths might be back, according to Brian Grazer

Arrested Development

Though Arrested Development might not have won unanimous praise for its very different latest series on Netflix, it was certainly popular even if Netflix keeps the viewing figures a tightly controlled secret. Now it appears there’s enough enthusiasm within the company to start talking about another run.

At least, that’s what Brian Grazer told Bloomberg News this week, in a story picked up by Variety. As it stands right now, everyone is very clear that it’s early days and no formal negotiations have begun.

There are plenty of issues to figure out, not the least of which is that most of the cast are busy with either film or regular TV work. The tough juggling act led to this most recent series’ slightly disjointed feel, with characters popping in and out of each others’ stories.

Moreover, the way things ended seemed designed by creator Mitch Hurwitz to lead into the much-mooted film version of the story, though dangling plotlines could definitely continue into another season.

more AD is always a good thing. Although I was disappointed with the latest series. It lacked the flair of the earlier ones. I think a major factor was the fact that the cast were separated, so it lost the group dynamic.
