This isn't the first time the streaming service has picked up series after they've faced the axe on their original networks. Netflix resurrected Arrested Development, starring Jason Bateman and Portia de Rossi, six years after it ended its initial run on Fox. The US version of The Killing, starring Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, was also picked up by Netflix for its fourth season in 2014.
