Arrested Development fans already drooling at the prospect of the show’s reboot, coming soon on Netflix, can get even more excited, as the shows creator is confident the movie will get made as well.
Mitch Hurwitz was speaking at a Q&A session at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival, and said about the anticipated movie, “I’m confident that we will succeed at that”. Even though 14 episodes have been made for season 4 exclusively for Netflix, he said, “There is a bigger story out there that does exist.”
He also said that the original plan was to go straight to the film, but there was more of the story that he wanted to tell, hence the new season.
Let’s hope there is a movie coming as Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has effectively killed off hopes of any more seasons, and has been quoted as saying, “We don’t anticipate being able to do season five, six and seven.”
The show is expected to hit the streaming service in May, and viewers can gorge on all fourteen episodes at once as Netflix continue their policy of putting out whole seasons from day 1.
