“Arrested Development” Finding New Life on Netflix

After having alienated almost their entire customer base with ill-conceived price hikes and spin-offs, it looks like the folks at Netflix have found a way to engender some goodwill---by hosting the return of one of the greatest prematurely canceled series in TV history.

Beginning in the first half of 2013, Netflix will serve as home to a new a batch of episodes of "Arrested Development," it was announced on Friday.

“After a long hiatus, I’m dying to finally get back to the narrator’s microphone,” said executive producer and series narrator Ron Howard. “Of all the projects we’ve been involved with over the years, we probably get more questions about Mitch Hurtwitz’s brilliant Arrested Development than any other — everyone, ourselves included, seems to feel like the Bluths left the party a bit too soon. Bringing a series back from cancellation almost never happens, but then, Arrested always was about as unconventional as they get, so it seems totally appropriate that this show that broke the mold is smashing it to pieces once again.”

It's unclear how many episodes will be made, or if all the old cast member will return, or if this will in any way effect the film adaptation that's long been rumored. But let's not focus on the unknown, instead, let us celebrate the return of the Bluth clan!
