'Arrested Development' Back On Our Screens, With New Episodes Funded By Netflix

Do you want the good news, or the good news?

Okay, first, Arrested Development is on its way back to our screens. The award-winning sitcom ran between 2003 and 2006 and, although it never saw big ratings during its tenure, has enjoyed global cult status ever since.

Now CNet UK reports that new episodes are on their way to us in 2013 - hopefully with stars Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Michael Cera and narrator and producer Ron Howard all on board.

This offering is going to be financed by US on-demand service Netflix and, in another boost for British fans of the series, Netflix will be available in the UK from early next year, meaning - cross fingers - easy access for all those who can't get enough of the dysfunctional Bluth family.
