In September of that year, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos said there was "no question" that Arrested Development would return and last year, Hurwitz reiterated that the Bluth family story wasn't over though noted that the show remained in the hands of 20th Century Fox.

"There's more of a story that has to be told somehow," he said in an interview. "We've got the whole story broken [down]. And Season Four was always meant to be act one of the three-act structure where everything goes sour."

Season 4 of the show featured the original cast while new characters included Debra Mooney, John Slattery, Terry Crews, Isla Fisher and John Krasinski. Kristen Wiig and Seth Rogen appeared as Lucille and George Sr in flashbacks.
