The show had run its course on the Fox network.
- Will Arnett

Yeah, you know, within the context of TV families,
these are pretty unsavory characters.
- Will Arnett

Well, we were never coming back to Fox...
that was clear.
- Will Arnett

Most shows, you really have to force it.
And everybody's nervous, and the network is nervous,
and they've all got their notepads out,
and they're all going to give notes on what they think is funny,
and everybody's trying to spin their jokes,
and this was so - the script was so good that we didn't
have to really do anything,
and it made it so easy for us to do well.
- Will Arnett

My first movie was this independent that I did on the Erie Canal in 1995,
called Erie, that I don't know if you could even get,
actually with Felicity Huffman.

called The Broken Giant later that fall.
And then I kind of started getting into doing pilots.
- Will Arnett

But since day one, we've always been kinda up against it.
So at the end, it's not surprising that we were kind

then it wasn't going to be for you, and that's OK.

and I've got a script in development with this guy
Chuck Martin who used to write on Arrested,
and, you know, we have a few things in various stages of development.
- Will Arnett

No, Arrested Development was such an amazing experience in every way,
and you know it was very unique in that it was a show
that received a lot of critical acclaim,
and yet we didn't ever achieve the ratings that we wanted.
- Will Arnett

And I think that at a certain point,
after all the time and all the conjecture and everything
that had kind of gone on surrounding this show,
I think that Mitch just felt like it was time to let it go.
It was best for the show.
- Will Arnett

Well, yeah.
At a certain point, you've got to be really honest with yourself.
Like, 'Why am I doing this? What are my motivations?' Like,
if you get into it because you want to be famous? Then
you've got a long row to hoe.
But if you really feel like it's a labour of love and
it's something you're actually legitimately good at,
then it's not that hard to keep plugging away.
- Will Arnett

But as a result of that, there was, once the show ended,
there was this talk for sort of four,
five months about what was going to happen,
and if we were going to move to Showtime,
and if we were going to be bought by ABC or whatever.
- Will Arnett
