Arrested Development fans are receiving another update from a member of the cast, and patience is definitely needed right now. Will Arnett spoke with The Wrap while promoting Bojack Horseman, and he was asked about the return of Arrested Development to Netflix. Fans have been waiting for season five.
Arnett said the following about the constant speculation regarding the return of the series:
“I’ll do [press for] something else and I’ll say like, ‘You know, it’s something we want to do and it’s gonna happen.’ And [then] it’s on Twitter that I said, ‘It’s happening,’ or whatever, and of course it doesn’t happen. Now it’s six months later and it still hasn’t happened.”
Arnett said more about the reasons for the delay and shared his frustration with it candidly as well. He said:
“I’ll just say this: It’s something that’s always out there and it’s something that we’re always constantly kinda talking about, and how can we do it and when can we do it. We go so far as to start to discuss the scheduling of it and when that would be, and for whatever reason it kind of gets slowed down. So, at this point, my answer is: ‘I don’t f—ing know.’ I know that everybody is game to do it. We all love doing it.”
