It seems the door is open for yet another season of Arrested Development, according to one of the show’s stars.
Tony Hale, who played Buster, recently told Entertainment Tonight radio he is pushing for a fifth season of the hit show. But only because he wants to see what happens to his on-screen love, Lucille Austero (or “Lucille Two”), played by Liza Minnelli.
“I want to see what happened to my sweet girlfriend Liza Minnelli,” Hale said. “I want to know what happened to my woman!”
Hale said it’s not out of the question, but it would be more difficult to put a show together now.
“It’s a lot of scheduling. A lot of people are doing different stuff and it’s nine people to get together. I really want to see where the story continues.”
Hale also posted a pic to his Instagram that day with AD costar, Will Arnett:
Now, I loved this show. I think the first few seasons were brilliant. But the fourth season was terrible and I’m grateful they never made the Arrested Development movie because that would have also been terrible. I really hope they don’t come back with a fifth season and I probably wouldn’t watch it if they did.
So please don’t campaign for this, Tony Hale. I don’t care what happens to Lucille Two and it would be pretty selfish to put us through another dreadful season just so you can have on-screen sex with Liza Minnelli.
