Arrested Development started off the revival craze when Netflix picked up for a fourth season that was released in 2013. The fifth season has been teased since the fourth season was released, and it has a possible release date set for this year. Will it really happen though?
David Cross is not so sure. He spoke about Arrested Development during an interview with Entertainment Weekly, and he does not know if it will actually happen.
“Your guess is as good as mine. I haven’t heard a thing. I only hear about it the same way everybody else does, which is the Internet. Nobody talked to me about it and I’m going on tour for six months … so hopefully they’re not starting to shoot soon. This happened last time. I mean, I knew they were working on it, but it took forever for Mitch and all those guys to do the deal with Netflix. Occasionally, I’d talk to Will Arnett or Jason Bateman, but that’s it. I didn’t really hear anything until it was pretty much time to go. So you know, I’ll believe it when I see it. I know that they’re writing, I know Mitch has an idea for it, and literally, that is all I know. If it works out, great, I would love to do it, of course. It’s such a fun show to do and a great cast to work with.”
David Cross is kicking off a stand-up tour that will take him around the country, so shooting might have to wait until he is done at least.
