    Some sources are saying it is officially happening, some are saying Netflix/Hurwitz are in negotiations, some are saying Netflix intends to make the movie, etc.

    Hit up Google for all different news stories. There’s way too many to post here.

    I hope it happens.

    They have something to prove now. And with the mixed reviews and Emmy snubs, Hurwitz and co. will only be motivated to push themselves even further.

    Hopefully they don’t stack all the amazing episodes at the end like they did with season 4, that’s what killed them at the Emmys this year.

    I’d also like it if they went back to their original setup instead of the one-character-per-episode thing.

    It’s good that they want to go back to the show’s roots and film when the whole cast can.

    Wake me up when/if it happens. I want to see what the hell happened with Lucille Austero. And please, would anyone be that kind to sum up where are all characters as of right now?

    I could not tell you how long I have been waiting for this and not bought any of the DVDs because of this!  Well, actually, I guess it would be about seven years.  The question is now whether a complete series (plus movie) will ever be released in a single package.

    AMC’s “Breaking Bad” may have beat out Netflix’s “House of Cards”
    for best drama on the Emmys Sunday night, but it’s a loss that doesn’t
    bother the streaming company’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.  “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan personally thanked Netflix
    backstage for saving the show, which couldn’t find an audience in the
    U.K., where it was canceled after three seasons, Sarandos told the
    audience Tuesday at TheWrap’s Media Leadership Conference, TheGrill.

    “We have a very interesting relationship with the show,” Sarandos said.  Indeeed, ratings for the show—whose last episode airs this weekend—began climbing in Season 3, after it started its Netflix run, as it
    became wildly popular with Netflix subscribers, Sarandos said. And the
    platform continues to introduce the series to new viewers every day.  “The
    most-watched episode of ‘Breaking Bad’ on Netflix last night was the
    pilot,” he said. “With all the excitement of what’s happening right now
    (as the show nears its close), people started watching the show from the
    beginning.”

    Of course, Sarandos expressed even more pride in its own growing
    storeroom of original programming. The streaming service won its first
    Primetime Emmy as a content provider when “House of Cards” director
    David Fincher walked away with the Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a
    Drama Series. The political drama was nominated in nine categories
    overall, while fellow newbie Netflix original series “Hemlock Grove” was
    nominated in two.

    Both series are shooting or close to shooting a second season, and
    Netflix’s first original series, “Lilyhammer,” will return later this
    year. (Sarandos refused to give a release date.) Meanwhile, Ricky
    Gervais’ “Derek” and “Orange Is the New Black”—a critically acclaimed
    prison dramedy from “Weeds” creator Jenji Kohan—both also will be
    returning.

    “More people watched ‘Orange Is the New Black’ in the first week than
    any of our others, even ‘Arrested Development,’” Sarandos said—which
    is the closest Netflix has come to releasing any type of ratings to the
    public.

    Despite “Orange” being based on a book about a woman’s 15-month
    prison term, and “House of Cards” is an adaptation of a 1990 British
    miniseries that spawned two sequel miniseries, Sarandos stressed that
    the source material will not play a factor in deciding how many seasons
    either runs for.  “In the case of ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ yeah it was a 15-month
    sentence, but there is no rule on how much time has passed. There’s a
    lot of possibility for that show to go very long,” he said. “Same with
    ‘House of Cards.’ The BBC version was three seasons, but we’ve taken a
    lot of detours from that series, as well.”

    And rest assured “Arrested Development” fans, Sarandos assured the cult comedy will return to Netflix.  “There’s no question. It’s a matter of when and what form it takes,”
    Sarandos said. “We kicked around the idea of doing another season, or
    doing a movie.”  Regardless of the form, though, any continuation of “Arrested
    Development” will stream exclusively on Netflix. Theatrical
    distribution, he said, “is not really consistent” with the company’s
    brand.

    The Bluth family returned to the small screen for a fourth season
    last summer after a seven-year absence. Due to scheduling conflicts with
    the busy cast and Netflix’s strategy to release the series in bulk, the
    show took on a unique form, which Sarandos described as more of an
    eight-and-a-half-hour movie compared to the series fans were used to.

    “Mitch Hurwitz had used our format to create something completely different,” Sarandos said.  Being different, of course, is bound to ruffle a few feathers, and
    not everyone was a fan of the storytelling method, which devoted an
    entire episode to one character. Sarandos admitted the show’s style
    worked against the it when initial reviews came out, but only because
    the critics didn’t see the whole picture—particularly how the last
    three episodes intertwined with the first three.

    Sarandos credited the wild success of their first round of original
    programming to existing outside of the television network model, because
    the quality of the show is only half the battle on traditional TV,
    where scheduling also can make or break a show.
    “We don’t have a fall schedule or primetime grid we’re trying to
    fill, so it does give us the luxury of waiting for the best projects,”
    Sarandos said. “It’s not just picking the right shows, it’s about
    picking when to put them on, and what show to put them on after, so we
    have a very luxurious environment for creating hits.”

    So it’s going to be a TV movie, alright then. I would still prefer another season, but I’ll take any AD I can get.

    Actually, it will be both, but the TV movie will come first.

    ^ The article you posted says that they don’t know which form the show will return with.

    Sources at Netflix are quoted as saying this will absolutely happen, but they are not sure in what form (series, or movie, or both). They’re pushing for another season though, and it may very well happen. Once again, it’s about the schedules. But we know that every actor involved absolutely loves the series and these characters, so I think it will happen. The real question is when. I’d love for it to happen no later than 2015 (realistically).

    A movie was never a good idea, and I don’t know why thye continue to insist on that.

    I would be upset if this only got a movie. To truly do it justice, this needs to be a Season 5. A movie is not enough time for me to spend with these characters. Hahaha
