According to Mashable, the ten new episodes will stream from the website at simultaneously, rather than on a traditionally weekly basis.
Executives at Netflix say that the episodes will be released "sometime next year", and each will focus on a single character.
Arrested Development was cancelled by Fox in 2006 due to slumping ratings, and has since gained a cult status. Stars including Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, David Cross, and Michael Cera are due to return for the recommissioned show.
According to Arnett, filming of the new episodes made exclusively for Netflix will begin this summer.
Show creator Mitch Hurwitz has expressed a desire to possibly do more than one season of Arrested Development, if the upcoming online season is successful. The series will culminate with a movie.
