Netflix has plans to bring more of the Bluth clan to your computer screens, according to Reuters.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said there’s “no question” that Arrested Development would return. At a conference held by The Wrap, Sarandos said “It is just a matter of when and what form it takes.” We could potentially see more AD in the form of new episodes or a film.

But since scheduling is still an issue with the cast, “It’s still speculative,” Sarandos said.

Netflix resurrected AD for a fourth season in May, after it was canceled by Fox in 2006.

In July, speaking with EW, Sarandos kept mum on the subject of more episodes, saying “I’m just extremely proud of the show. We love what Mitch did. The viewers loved what Mitch did with the show. The same way Arrested Development was ahead of its time when it was on Fox, I think it’s ahead of its time today in the way that Mitch was able to construct the story in season 4 and tell it over 15 episodes that interlock in a way that I’ve never seen on television before.”

After Season 4, do you think the Bluths deserve more storytelling time? Let us know in the comments.
