Netflix’s Ted Sarandos had plenty to say about his company’s original programs at the Television Critics Association press tour. The streaming platform’s Chief Content Officer discussed several of his company’s upcoming projects, including originals like Fuller House and Daredevil, during an interview on July 28, 2015.
For starters, Sarandos made sure to address the rumors surrounding Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen returning to Fuller House, Netflix’s sequel series to the popular 1987-1995 show Full House. Other cast members from the original show have already been on board for a while, including John Stamos, Candice Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Dave Coulier. Sarandos said the fashion-mogul Olsen twins are “teetering” on whether or not to join the series as guests.
Similar to the vague information about the Olsen twins, Sarandos didn’t have anything concrete to report in terms of a new season of Arrested Development. Though executive »

Ever since Netflix resurrected Arrested Development, with Season 4 debuting back in 2013, fans have been wondering when we might get Season 5. There has been talk of an Arrested Development movie that would arrive before Season 5, but we haven't heard anything about a movie in quite some time. During the streaming service's TCA press tour presentation earlier today, chief content officer Ted Sarandos revealed that negotiations are under way with cast members for new episodes, although it is quite a long process.
"We're plugging along. It's a long complex deal to make for these guys both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows. But also because the show is owned by [20th Century] Fox. The intent is to have a new season of Arrested Development, and all negotiations are underway."
Back in April, executive producer Brian Grazer revealed that they are producing a 17-episode Season 5, with production scheduled to begin »
Those crazy Bluths aren’t finished quite yet. Fans of the Fox cult comedy Arrested Development were over the moon when Netflix resuscitated the long-since-canceled series for a fourth season, despite the final product ending up as a slightly uneven, much less hilarious go-round than the first three seasons. Luckily, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos remains committed to giving creator Mitchell Hurwitz another chance to get the formula right.
At the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour, Sarandos spoke at length about Netflix’s upcoming slate, revealing that BoJack Horseman would be coming back – and that Lilyhammer would not – in addition to a slew of upcoming originals. And when asked about the current status of a fifth season of Arrested Development, he seemed cautiously optimistic:
“We are plugging along… It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, »

Netflix just can't get enough of the Bluths. Maybe. While "Arrested Development" producer Brian Grazer recently indicated that the streaming service is full steam ahead on a fifth season of the comedy, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos seems a little more reticent -- though optimistic. At today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Sarandos said that Netflix is in "negotiations" now to bring the show back. “We are plugging along,” Sarandos said. “It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys, both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, but also because the show is owned by Fox… It is our intent to have a new season of 'Arrested Development.' All the negotiations are underway.” The fourth season was plagued by complex scheduling problems due to the stars' hectic professional lives, so similar complications may be slowing the train a bit. »

“BoJack Horseman” has been renewed for Season 3 by Netflix. The third season of the streaming service’s animated series will consist of 12 episodes set to premiere in 2016. Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”) voices BoJack, a washed-up 90’s sitcom star who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. The voice cast also includes Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins. It was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The streaming giant also unveiled the premiere dates for the fourth season of “Longmire” (Sept. 10), which was picked up by Netflix after »

Whether you thought Season 4 of Arrested Development was “a huge mistake” or you “prematurely shot your wad” while watching it, there can be no doubt that Netflix’s recent announcement that it has commissioned a fifth season to air in 2016 is exciting news. There are few comedies as utterly hilarious and self-referential as Arrested Development, and any opportunity to expand on its characters and innumerable in-jokes is more than welcome!
There were certainly problems with the fourth season, and it probably didn’t quite match the high points of the original three seasons, but there was definitely more than enough there to suggest that a fifth season could be a huge success. Plus the inventive narrative structure suggested that Mitchell Hurwitz and his team certainly haven’t run out of innovative ideas as yet.
This article lists just 9 things that it would be great to see in the new season. »

The team behind The Lego Movie’s Lego Batman spin-off (currently known, somewhat logically as Lego Batman), already have Will Arnett back as the Dark Knight. So who would you cast as his Robin? They've picked his on-screen Arrested Development nephew, of course, with Michael Cera taking on the role. Cera feels like the perfect choice for this one, and we can already imagine his Robin as a nerdy, nervy and slightly whiny take on Bruce Wayne’s ward, most likely a little sick of his boss’s arrogant style and tired of his own sidekick status. The people in charge of bringing the new film to life include Seth Grahame-Smith on script duty and Chris McKay, animation co-director/editor on Lego, directing. Franchise overlords Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing. Promising to cover all aspects of the character’s long history, Lego Batman will be with us on February 10, 2017.

Will Arnett proved to the be the perfect man to voice Lego Batman in The Lego Movie, and given that the upcoming Lego Batman Movie will acknowledge every iteration of the character, it makes sense that Robin would play a part. It looks like Arnett will be keeping it in the (Arrested Development) family, as Michael Cera has just signed on to play Batman's sidekick, Robin. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller... Read More »

One of the biggest surprises of last year was not only the financial success of The Lego Movie, but, on a personal note, how much I enjoyed the film on a pure entertainment level. If I had to point to my favorite thing about the film it would likely be Will Arnett taking on the film's comically moody version of Batman and with The Lego Batman Movie on the way, we know we'll be getting more where that came from. Arnett is back on board to voice the yellow-hued Caped Crusader and it appears Warner Bros. has found his Robin with Variety reporting "Arrested Development" and Superbad star Michael Cera will voice Batman's most popular sidekick. The film isn't set to open until February 10, 2017, but now that Arnett and Cera are teaming up for the project, I have to wonder if any other "Arrested Development" cast members will lend »

It has been years since we saw Robin on screen in a Batman movie.
