Fubar has the classic action movie storyline of a hero on the verge of retirement.

Schwarzenegger plays a CIA Operative who is all set to retire before he discovers a family secret and is forced to go back into the field for one last job.

Netflix’s description of the show says the series will explore “universal family dynamics” alongside a “backdrop of spies, action and humor”.

Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick) will play Schwarzenegger’s daughter, who has secretly been working the same job as her father.

What did Arnie say about Fubar?

Talking about his new TV series, Schwarzenegger said: “Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like True Lies. Well, here it is.

“Fubar will kick your ass and make you laugh - and not just for two hours. You get a whole season. It’s been a joy to work with Nick, Skydance, and Netflix to give my fans exactly what they’ve been waiting for.”

Executive producer and creator Nick Santora (Reacher) added:  “I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger films - I’d hit my dad up for a few bucks so I could race to the movies and see the biggest star in the world on the big screen - so creating the first scripted television project for Arnold is unbelievably exciting for me.

“The thing I always marvelled 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!”
