Fans will be happy to hear cult comedy "Arrested Development" will return to Netflix.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said there's "no question" the Bluths will be back, and that it's just a matter of working out scheduling for the cast, many of whom have other current projects.

The critically-acclaimed series aired its first three seasons on Fox, but the network cancelled the show due to dismal ratings. By then the show had developed a cult following that drove DVD sales and started online campaigns for another season and a movie.

Netflix brought the comedy back for a 15-episode fourth season, released in its entirety to subscribers in May. At the time, CEO Reed Hastings said that "Netflix is about being able to watch when you want ... So we're really not focused on the Day 1 ratings, it's really over the first year."

The revival, which saw the return of most of the original cast members, proved to be a success. Netflix is still deciding the shape of the dysfunctional family's continuing story.

In the meantime, Netflix has confirmed new seasons for "House of Cards," "Hemlock Grove" and "Orange Is the New Black."
