During an appearance on the Empire Film Podcast, Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz talked a little about the future of the show. [He discussed one] character who was conspicuously absent from the new season of Arrested Development: Gob’s puppet Franklin. “We did have a Franklin plot. It’s still yet to come. There’s two big absences in the show. One is Franklin and one is the banana stand. And I didn’t realize the marketing was gonna be so banana stand-heavy … Franklin, we just didn’t get him in there, but we have a plot for him.” (Via)
‘Arrested Development’ WILL be back in some form. On Netflix.
‘I kinda go back and forth between [a movie] and a series. But here’s the most important thing, whatever we do, I want to get the cast all together and not do another anthology thing, and that’s why I keep thinking about kicking off with a special or a three-part show and then going into a series.”
So basically, he wants to do it the right way. Good on him.
