Jason Bateman may have inadvertently revealed that Arrested Development will continue after its fourth season. The show's fourth season is premiering on Netflix in another few days, but Bateman says 'there will be more to this story' and they will finish it 'at another time'.
Bateman was recently interviewed by E! Online about the show, and he explained, "[Creator] Mitch Hurwitz's intention always was to do a movie and when he started to write the movie script, the story that he wanted to tell was too long and too big to fit in a standard movie script. So he decided to take the first act of that movie and put it these episodes."
He adds, "Acts two or three will either be in a movie or a longer form on Netflix. Watching these [Netflix] episodes will be fully satisfying, and it all comes to a conclusion, but there are plenty of questions that are left unanswered…which we will finish at some other time."
Whether he said it by accident or on purpose, it looks like we'll be getting more Arrested Development in some form or another after this season. The fourth season of Arrested Development premieres on Netflix on May 26th, but the show will have to do well to justify any more money spent.
