'MacGruber' Series Starring Will Forte is Officially Happening at Peacock!

Will Forte will officially be reprising his role as MacGruber in an upcoming series for the streaming service Peacock!

An eight-episode order has been issued for the MacGruber series. The show is based on SNL’s parody of MacGyver, which later was turned into a 2010 feature film of the same name.

Will is set to write and executive produce the series with John Solomon and Jorma Taccone, who were his co-writers on the movie. Jorma will also direct the half-hour series.

Variety reports that the series will “begin with the main character, described as America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot, being released from prison after rotting in there for over a decade. His new mission will be to take down a mysterious villain from his past—Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber must race against time to defeat the forces of evil, only to find that evil may be lurking within.”

Watch a teaser video below!

Back in April, Will had some very exciting news about his personal life to share.
