When the TV gods take our favorite shows away from us, Netflix comes to the rescue. Over the past few years the streaming service has revived many memorable series from yesteryear, including “Arrested Development” and “Gilmore Girls.” Click through out photo gallery above to see the Top 10 TV shows brought back to life by Netflix.
Fox’s “Arrested Development” was cancelled in 2006 but revived by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013. An additional upcoming fifth season is expected in 2018. “Arrested Development” was a big player on the awards front, winning Best Comedy Series for its first season in 2004 and Best Comedy Writing in both 2004 (Mitchell Hurwitz) and 2005 (Hurwitz and James Vallely). Series star Jason Bateman earned noms as Best Comedy Actor for both 2005 (for Fox’s second season) and 2013 (for Netflix’s Season 4).
Another long-awaited TV revival came last year for fans of “Gilmore Girls.” The former WB/CW series closed up shop in 2007 only to return from the dead nine years later in the form of Netflix’s limited series “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” The original dramedy series was nominated for — and won — a single Emmy Award, for Best Non-Prosthetic Makeup in 2004. However, “A Year in the Life” was snubbed across the board at the 2017 Emmys.
Other popular Netflix revivals and/or continuations include “Black Mirror,” “Fuller House,” “The Killing,” “Longmire,” “Lovesick,” “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Trailer Park Boys.”
