Fans of the cult favorite series Arrested Development have a lot to cheer about today. The series has begun production for its fourth season, which will only be available on Netflix next year.

The show’s main star, Jason Bateman, tweeted a picture from the set saying “First day. Away we go…” as filming for the show’s fourth season got underway.

After being canceled by Fox in 2006, AD gained a growing fanbase through DVD sales and especially online viewing on Netflix and Hulu. If the show’s return in 2013 is a success, it will prove the power of online streaming providers and could pave the way for more canceled network series to return to life online.

Will you be watching the revived Arrested Development when it makes its return on Netflix next year?

    This is exactly where netflix is going to get into trouble. Production costs for original programming is going to be one of the nails in the netflix coffin.

    This begs the question Shane is asking…

    Will some one pony up to netflix to watch real-time programming, when it could be obtained after the fact on the cheap, like the original Fox production?

      It makes perfect sense for netflix to push this way over in time. All the pay TV providers have made similar moves because original content can help differentiate a service and lower reliance on buying from a few studios. It’s not easy but one Breaking Bad could drive subs to netflix for multiple years. You have to give that a shot.

        In any event its a huge gamble…

        Content has become so fragmented, it becomes harder and harder to justify the production cost of say a “Lilyhammer” *without* TV advertising or the promise of alternative revenue streams.

    cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

    Its a risky move although netflix its cutting the middle man production cost are will be higher than to buy content and it will be just one just one show with that money netfix could acquire more than one series or movies maybe if they made good original content with famous actors it will work cause jason bateman its not cheap .anyways good for netflix i would love if they brought back my name its earl i love that show or at least a tv movie just to finish the story cause it got cancelled and left it as a it will be a final season

    I never liked AD in the first place so no, I won’t be watching it. I wish they would start a new FIREFLY series. I loved that show. I bought the set and watch it very often.

    I have NetFlix Online. For the Old Movies. As long as the price does not go sky high I will keep them.. I don’t watch 95% of the new stuff. It is trash most of the time!
    Just give me the good old TV shows and movies!
