David Cross says he “can pretty much guarantee” more episodes of his Netflix sketch comedy series “W/ Bob and David.”
Cross, who stars on the series with his former “Mr. Show” partner Bob Odenkirk, said in an interview with Digital Spy that they’re both interested in doing more episodes. Netflix has yet to officially renew the series.
“I just spoke to Bob yesterday and we both really want to do another round — if not several more rounds,” the actor said.
But another batch of episodes would have to fit around Odenkirk’s schedule as the lead on AMC’s “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul,” no small challenge.
“It’s really tough,” he said. “We have a short window and if he’s not available during that window, then we just can’t do it … But we both want to do it and Netflix would be happy to have us do it, so we will do more. I can pretty much guarantee it.”
Cross also discussed a possible fifth season for fan favorite “Arrested Development,” which he said series creator Mitch Hurwitz has been working on since Season 4 debuted on Netflix in 2013. “It’s just a matter of getting the deal worked out — I think there’s like four or five different entities who own a piece of it,” he said.
The fourth season of the cult hit proved divisive among fans, as the season isolated the series leads to per-episode storylines to accommodate the actors’ busy schedules.
“I personally would love to do it more similar to the original version, when it was on Fox,” he said. “I just missed working with all those actors.”
Cross continued: “I had one tiny scene with Tony [Hale, in season 4], you know? But yeah, everybody would love to do it.”
