Mitch Hurwitz's comedy series about the eccentric Bluth family was previously confirmed to return in 2013 in the US, seven years after it originally ended its three-season TV run on Fox.

"Arrested Development is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and we are incredibly excited to bring it back for British and Irish fans," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer.

"As today's announcement with Twentieth Century Fox clearly shows, we're continuing to add all kinds of great content for our UK and Ireland to enjoy when and how they want it."

Arrested Development was voted in TIME magazine's Top 100 TV shows of all-time and won an Emmy for 'Outstanding Comedy Series' for its first run. Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter and Will Arnett were among the cast.

The first three seasons of Arrested Development are already on Netflix.

Other shows coming to the on-demand online service include Modern Family, The Killing, Lie To Me and Sons of Anarchy.

Mitch Hurwitz has revealed that the new Arrested Development episodes could be the first of many returns to the Bluth family and a movie is expected to follow the reunion miniseries.
