Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon end his acting slump since 2019 as he is now gearing up to make his OTT debut with the upcoming Netflix series ‘Fubar’. The bodybuilder-turned-actor is reported to play a spy who discovers that his daughter is also a part of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
After they discover each other’s secrets, the two join forces for a mission. The eight-episode series will premiere on May 25.
The OTT giant released a new teaser of the action comedy series on Twitter and the caption read: "Arnold is back — and starring in his first TV series ever: FUBAR! Everything else is top secret, except for that ice pack he's gonna need."
Clearly, fans couldn’t contain their excitement over the idea of Arnold returning to acting after nearly 3 years. Many swamped the comments section and heaped praises over the actor. Reacting to the teaser, one Twitter user wrote, "Love this side of him. It's going to be enjoyable." Another fan shared, "Interesting, let's see what the Governator can do."

The teaser begins with Arnold lighting a cigar and several scenes show him gearing up for something big as he heads out on a chase on a motorcycle and a car as well. The teaser also gives a glimpse into the actor delivering his most popular dialogue, ‘I’m back baby!’. The teaser ends with Fortune Feimster's character injuring him and stating, "That's what you get for being sentimental."
Apart from Arnold, Fubar will also star an ensemble cast including Monica Barbaro, Jay Baruchel, Fortune, Milan Carter, Travis Van Winkle, Gabriel Luna, Andy Buckley, Aparna Brielle, Barbara Eve Harris and Fabiana Udenio.
This is the former California governor’s first TV series. He is also an executive producer of the series.
A Variety report quoted series showrunner Nick Santora stating, "The thing I always marveled at was how Schwarzenegger could be funny while still kicking ass. That’s why I wanted Fubar to be a hysterical, CIA-spy comedy mixed with heart-stopping action! And it is all that — and more.”
On the career front, Arnold will be last seen in the film Terminator: Dark Fate in 2019 with Linda Hamilton and Mackenzie Davis. He is also starring in Kung Fury 2 later this year alongside David Sandberg, Michael Fassbender, and Alexandra Shipp.
