Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz has broken silence on Season 5 and hinted at a possible sixth season.
While noting that the previously announced fifth season is still some way off, Hurwitz confirmed during an interview with Pretentious Film Majors that he’s already broken the story and hinted that, come what may, it “has to be told somehow”:
“There’s talk of a fifth season but it’s not my decision, 20th Century FOX owns the rights, but there’s more of the story that has to be told somehow and we’ve got the whole story broken down.”
Hurwitz also hinted a possible sixth season to follow Season 5, saying:
“Season 4 was always meant to be act one of a three act structure where everything goes sour at the end of it, so that will hopefully be coming.”
Meanwhile, to help bridge the gap to Season 5, Hurwitz confirms that he’s currently editing a chronological version of Season 4:
“Right now I’m cutting a version of Season 4 that tells it chronologically.”
