- The self-deprecating action-comedy series “FUBAR” launched on Netflix on May 25.
- None other than “Conan,” “Terminator” and “True Lies” star Arnold Schwarzenegger takes the action helm.
- In “FUBAR,” the 75-year-old veteran CIA agent must complete one last mission together with his daughter.
It seems like the dream come true of every action fan of the 1980s and 1990s. After four years of well-deserved retirement as an actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, last seen in 2019 in “Terminator: Dark Fate,” is returning to screens as an action hero. In the freshly launched Netflix series “FUBAR” he not only slips into the lead role, but is also involved as an executive producer.
Arnie becomes a secret agent again, just like in “True Lies”
In “FUBAR,” Schwarzenegger plays a 65-year-old CIA agent on the verge of retirement. But that doesn’t stop him, as the aged Agent Luke, from handing out thunderous bells and blowing up a lot of stuff. The fact that his daughter Emma (Monica Barbaro) has made the same career choice upsets Luke, but the two of them still get together for the mission.
Eight episodes of “FUBAR” now on Netflix
The first season of “FUBAR” comes with a total of eight episodes and is available in the Netflix streaming catalog from May 25. The focus is, of course, on hard-hitting fist, baller and explosion action. But in “FUBAR,” Luke and Emma also have to redefine their father-daughter relationship and overcome the gaping generation gap, which also makes for a good dose of self-deprecating comedy.
