Will Arnett Is Returning to Netflix So Plan Your Streaming Sessions Accordingly
Just in case you needed another reason to binge-watch TV, Netflix has given a series order to Will Arnett's new comedy Flaked , The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reveals. Set in Venice, Calif., the eight-episode sitcom, which is slated to debut in 2016, will center around the character, Chip (played by Arnett) — a self-appointed “guru," who unintentionally falls for his best friend’s crush. (So you know that's going to go over well.) Suffice to say, these romantic notions create quite the upset in his life and hilarious hijinks ensue. And notice that I use the word "hilarious" because that's what this series is bound to produce given that Arnett is not only the main character, but also just so happened to co-write the series with Mark Chappell. So you know it's gotta be laugh out loud material. These are simple facts, people.
Of course, Arnett is no stranger to the Netflix crowd given his memorable portrayal of Gob Bluth in Arrested Development, not to mention his amazing vocal talents in BoJack Horseman . “We are thrilled to be the home of Will Arnett’s next series, and look forward to Chip joining his repertoire alongside such diverse and inspirational characters such as Gob, Bojack, and Batman,” Netflix VP Cindy Holland said in a statement. Clearly, this streaming service knows great comedy when they see it and loves Arnett just as much as we do.
So what is it about Arnett that makes him able to spin every Netflix series into comedic gold? Well, I'm so glad you asked…

Some Would Say He's Downright Magical
