In a Spreecast livestream in March 2013, Zachary stated that there would not be a fourth live-action film, which was echoed by Jeff. In an interview, Jeff shared his hopes for the series’ future: “I hope it [“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever”] is being turned into a cartoon, but I would really like to see it become a cartoon special on television.’
