'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.”

'Once Upon a Time' Is Leaving Netflix - Find Out Why

Sad news for Netflix users who are also fans of the hit series Once Upon a Time – the fantasy series will be leaving the streaming service next month.

The ABC series will be leaving Netflix on September 6, 2020, which was actually predicted by fan sites. The show’s page confirms this news.

The streamer’s deal with the studio only allows the show to be streamed for up to two years after it premiered on Netflix, which is similar to other ABC shows like Scandal, according to What’s On Netflix.

Once Upon a Time‘s final season premiered on Netflix on September 6, 2018, which is why it will leave the streaming service on that same date this year.

It’s expected that Once Upon a Time will go to Disney+ in the future, though this hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Here are all the movies and TV shows that are being removed in August.
