ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT to only air one season on Netflix

Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said that the new batch of Arrested Development episodes was a “one-off” that came under “non-repeatable circumstances,” noting that it would be “extremely difficult to get the cast together” for another go-around. Even with each episode centering around one specific character, scheduling was still incredibly tough to work out given that the show’s actors are all now in-demand and had other commitments to juggle.

Furthermore we likely won’t see Arrested Development’s story continue in a TV-style iteration following the upcoming string of Netflix episodes, star Jason Bateman recently clarified to Empire that the plan is to wrap the story up with the long-promised feature film:

“[The Netflix episodes will be] the first third of a three part story — the second two parts will be in the movie. So this is the first act, and the movie is act two and three. They’re all just asking questions that the movie itself will answer.”
