The new episodes of the show, which was cancelled in 2006, will be available on the streaming service in the Q2 2013.
Fox and Imagine Television will co-produce the episodes and Netflix will back "some" of the production costs.
There are likely to be 9 new episodes, one for each of the main characters, before the long-awaited Arrested Development movie is released in theaters.
The move is in-line with Netflix's move towards original content. The service paid top-dollar to exclusively air the upcoming drama series "House of Cards" with Kevin Spacey.
