“I kind of go back and forth between that 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.”

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos also affirmed that they’re game for another round of Arrested Development.
