Netflix Gets Exclusive ‘Arrested Development’ Streaming Rights For New Season

Netflix has signed an exclusive deal to resurrect acclaimed comedy series “Arrested Development.” New episodes will be available only to Netflix streaming subscribers in the U.S. in 2013. For the first time in their histories, Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine Television will produce original first-run entertainment content for the internet subscription service, bringing back the acclaimed series to production on all new episodes five years after its cancellation.

“Arrested Development is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and its return through Netflix is a perfect example of how we are working closely with studios and networks to provide consumers with entertainment they love,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer.

“It’s also a perfect example of how broad and successful our relationship has become with Fox as we work together with their film, television, international and digital divisions on several exciting initiatives,” he added.
