In a move that surprises no one, Netflix has announced that after the rousing success of "Arrested Development," they would happily air more episodes.

In an interview with CNBC, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said that the release of the fourth season last weekend has done as well as they imagined:

"We had very high expectations from the beginning for "Arrested Development" because it's got a well-known brand, and it met all of those expectations, we were thrilled with the response, it's been huge, just as we had hoped."

"‘Arrested’ is unique, because that’s really up to the talent. If the talent were willing to do more, and interested in that, I'm sure we would be willing.”

Hastings isn't the only one who's been happy with fans of the show and their endless devotion. Last week, "Arrested" creator Mitch Hurwitz posted a note to Facebook thanking the hordes of folks who watched the show and encouraged its production.
