Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told investors Monday that his company would only broadcast one new season of the cult comedy series, ‘Arrested Development’, which is being brought back after an original run on Fox that lasted from 2003-06. The return of the comedy was announced in 2011 and then Netflix announced they would stream 14 episodes on the service this spring.
CEO Reed Hastings said on a conference call that the streaming service got the comedy under “unrepeatable circumstances.” So after it’s 14th episode, it’ll need to find a new home. Star Jason Bateman teased the possibility of a movie, but creator Mitch Hurwitz said that would be too difficult with all the now-famous actors’ schedules.
The entire fourth season of Arrested Development will be streaming on Netflix in May. If you’re counting on any other seasons, you’ll have to look elsewhere – for now at least, as Netflix is hopeful to produce more seasons as they have first stake in it, but currently there are no plans to move past 1 season.
