Hot on the heels of his 1980s rival Sylvester Stallone’s popular series Tulsa King, Arnold Schwarzenegger is giving TV a try. One year younger than Stallone at age 75, Arnold is taking on his first TV series, and it looks like his answer to the True Lies reboot. Even his True Lies co-star Tom Arnold is in the series. FUBAR arrives on Netflix this May. A twist on Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Arnold plays Luke Brunner, a retiring CIA operative who learns his daughter is also a CIA operative. Too many secrets?
“Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like True Lies. Well, here it is,” Arnold announced in publicity for the show. “FUBAR will kick your ass and make you laugh–and not just for two hours. You get a whole season.”
Check out this teaser trailer for FUBAR:
In case it’s not in your lexicon, “FUBAR” is the World War II-era acronym for “f’ed up beyond all recognition.”
Familiar actors in guest appearances on the show include Jay Baruchel (RoboCop, Fanboys) and Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Recurring actors include Monica Barbaro (I’m Charlie Walker, Stumptown), Fabiana Udenio (Summer School), Aparna Brielle (Boo, Bitch), Fortune Feimster (The Mindy Project), Barbara Eve Harris (The Man in the High Castle), and Christian Bako (Killjoys).
Look for the first season of FUBAR landing May 25, 2023, on Netflix.
