Sometimes, television dreams DO come true...

After years of fans begging for more Arrested Development, executive producer/narrator Ron Howard and star Jason Bateman have revealed that a ten-episode Netflix resurrection of the beloved series will start shooting in four weeks. If only the power of rabid fans had been able to bring back Freaks and Geeks too...

NCIS followers can look forward to seeing more of their favorite cast members next season. CBS has just announced that they renewed all of their regular cast members' contracts for another year.

Director Brett Ratner, most famous for screwing up the X-Men franchise, is currently in talks to executive produce Rock In a Hard Place, a new dramedy about an aging punk rocker who moves in with his mother after a stint in rehab.

Get ready for more new faces on Revenge. British actor Barry Sloane will guest star on Season 2 of the crazy Hamptons-set drama as Ethan, a mysterious man who has ties to Emily's past. While that's all well and good, we're more interested in hearing more about that whole "Emily's Mom" thing that producers keep hinting at. Can't you see Elizabeth Mitchell of Lost as Emanda's long absent mother?

With all of the new additions to The Good Wife, we're frankly surprised that any of the original cast members still have their jobs. Amanda Peet will guest star next season as a client of Lockhart & Gardner who becomes Alicia's confidant. Since this is The Good Wife where basically everyone is super-shady, we're sensing that this new character may have some hidden motivations for getting so chummy with Alicia.

Just what everyone wanted -- more singing competitions! BET's sister network Centric has just announcedthat Gladys Knight will be a judge on their new show Apollo Live.

If you've been comparing all sci-fi television to Firefly for the past decade, your friends probably want you to stop talking about it. Thankfully you can still get your Firefly fix on the Science Channel -- the network will air a new one-hour special chronicling the show's upcoming 10-year reunion at this year's Comic-Con. The special will also feature an in-depth roundtable interview with the cast.
