Fans of "Arrested Development" will be thrilled to learn the show's new season is underway.

Reports state that the show's new season will premiere on Netflix in 2013. The entire cast has reunited for the new season, and writer Dean Lorey is busy blogging about the reunion.

"The original cast is back. We're shooting this year. I wish I could give more specifics but, for the moment, even the schedule is being kept under wraps," said the writer. "But it's happening and it's great to be back with my pals from the show."

Netflix's chief content officer issued a statement about his enthusiasm for the new season. "'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."

The show was only on the air for three seasons but immediately gained a cult following; it actually grew in popularity after its cancellation.

Several networks have picked up the series in syndication, but Netflix is taking the show to a new level by producing a new season.

Hulu has released a teaser for the Super Bowl that features a "Development" theme.

"Arrested Development" featured a motley cast of characters in the Bluth family, which was struggling to survive after going deep in debt from bad business deals. The comedy garnered much success, winning six Emmy awards, one Golden Globe; it was named one of Time magazine's 100 Best TV Shows of All-Time.

Fox cancelled the series after only three seasons, angering many fans.

Rumors surrounding production of a new series and movie immediately began after the cancellation, but nothing was confirmed until November of 2011. The show currently has over 1 million friends on Facebook and 6,000 followers on Twitter.
