Arnold Schwarzenegger, age 75, is taking on his first TV series, and it looks like his answer to the True Lies reboot. FUBAR arrives on Netflix this May. A twist on True Lies and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Arnold plays Luke Brunner, a retiring CIA operative 10-years younger than the actor, who learns his daughter is also a CIA operative.
“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 new full 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). Even Arnold’s True Lies co-star Tom Arnold is in the series, although he doesn’t make the new trailer.
Look for the first season of FUBAR landing May 25, 2023, on Netflix.
