It was only on for a season in 2005 but got nominated for three Emmy awards and HBO is doing an “Arrested Development” type deal and bringing it back now that it has a cult following. Deals are still in the works so there will be more on this when more news about it comes up. http://www.deadline.com/2014/03/comeback-lisa-kudrow-series-season-2-hbo-plan/
