Now they're being rewarded for their patience with an extra season, too.

The deal is also a content coup for Netflix, the recently beleaguered streaming service. "For the first time in their histories, Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine Television will produce original first-run entertainment content for the world's leading internet subscription service, bringing back the acclaimed series to production on all new episodes five years after its cancellation," Netflix said in a statement.

Ron Howard, 'Arrested''s producer and narrator, tweeted, "Gotta warm up my throat and start practicing.... "it's Arrested....Development" Good news."
