Arnold Schwarzenegger is ‘FUBAR’ in this teaser for his Netflix TV debut

With all due thanks (or blame) to Kiefer Sutherland, it feels like most of our favorite ’80s and ’90s action movie stars have made the jump to TV, streaming or otherwise. We’re racking our brains trying to think of one or two exceptions to the rule, and all we can come up with is Dolph, who seems pretty content in his DTV lane (aside from one weird syndicated fire-and-rescue show back in 2013), unlike Sly Stallone (Tulsa King), Jean-Claude Van Damme (Jean-Claude Van Johnson) and even Steven Seagal, who somehow convinced A&E that he was a New Orleans cop instead of a washed-up doofus and had cameras follow him around for a season’s worth of material on Steven Seagal: Lawman some ten or so years ago (Bruce Willis doesn’t count, given that he got his start on TV). But the largest non-Swedish domino has fallen: Arnold Schwarzenegger is headed to Netflix for FUBAR, a new streaming show that takes its cues from James Cameron’s True Lies (though not enough to be confused with the True Lies TV show). Color us kind of excited.

Here’s the teaser, which is 23 seconds long and kinda perfect:

Here’s your standard two-sentence synopsis:

“A CIA Operative on the verge of retirement discovers a family secret. Forced to go back into the field for one last job, the series tackles universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, action and humor.”

Even better than that, though, is the statement from Arnold himself that Netflix included in their press blast. We’ve reprinted it in full here, though you’re gonna have to do your best Schwarzenegger impression to get the most entertainment value out of it:

“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.”

The eight-episode first season of FUBAR will premiere on Netflix on May 25.
