The cult TV comedy about the quirky, formerly wealthy Bluth family is set to return in early 2013 after its cancellation in 2006.

Arrested Development was critically acclaimed, earning six Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe, but failed to draw strong ratings. Its cult following and post-cancellation hype, however, has compelled its creators to put the show back on track.

Hurwitz revealed in February that an Arrested Development film is in the works, which is expected to follow the 10-episode season in 2013.
