Ron Howard Gives <i>Arrested Development</i> Update: "Everyone Wants to do More"

Arrested Development recently wrapped up its bonus fourth season on Netflix, but fans of the comedy series are already hungry for more.

Though rumors of a potential film or additional episodes have circulated the past several months, producers have not yet made any concrete announcements about their plans for the show.

However, Inside TV reports that Ron Howard—the series narrator, producer and actor—commented that Arrested Development might still have some life in it during an interview with Entertainment Weekly radio.

“Everyone wants to do more,” Howard remarked. “Mitch [Hurwitz] did initiate the whole thing as the beginning of a kind of mystery that needs to be solved, and somehow or another I’d be shocked if we didn’t find a way to solve it and do that.”

Despite the cast’s willingness to reunite and extend the series, many actors and show producers are so busy that it might not happen in the near future, Howard was quick to add.

“Everybody is incredibly busy,” he said. “There’s no timetable. No writing has begun.”

Even though producers and cast have not yet started working on any future plans for the show, Howard emphasized that “it is everybody’s intention [to do more].”
