Netflix Wants to Make New Episodes of RENO 911!

While the service is currently part of the bidding war to bring Arrested Development back for new episodes, apparently Netflix is also interested in bringing another canceled series back from the dead. Vulture is reporting that the pay service is currently talking with the show’s producers Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher about bringing Reno 911! back for new episodes after its cancellation in 2009. However, a deal with series co-creators and stars Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant and Kerri Kenney-Silver has not been closed just yet.

One of the other hold-ups might be Comedy Central’s copyrights over the show since the cable network would have to agree to let Netflix exclusively host the new episodes initially. As of now these are just early talks, and nothing is set in stone, but the discussion actually was happening before Netflix even came into the mix on the Arrested Development front. Either way, it sounds like Netflix is becoming a serious competitor in hosting exclusive content, almost to the point of becoming their own channel. The question is whether there are enough fans of Reno 911! to make it worth their while. Personally, I’d love to see Thomas Lennon back in the shades and short-shorts.  Hit the jump for a few clips of the show.
