Let the speculation and online campaigns begin! Months after HBO decided not to renew comedy series Bored to Death for another season, it appears that the network is mulling over the prospect of a feature film sendoff for the quirky show. The speculation began when star Ted Danson revealed to a French journalist that there was a good chance of a 90-minute movie happening. Vulture reached out to HBO for comment, and the network responded that there had “been some conversations” but cautioned, “it’s at a very early stage.” That is, don’t hold your breath.
Fan outcry (and continued DVD sales) led to an Arrested Development revival as the show is now returning for one more season on Netflix followed by a feature film, and Community fans have rallied early with the “Six Seasons and a Movie” battle cry becoming the show’s unofficial motto. Whether a Bored to Death movie actually happens or not is still very much in the air, but stranger things have happened. The final season of the show ended last December.
