Prepare to tear your throat.

NBCUniversal announced Monday that the greatest action hero of our generation, MacGruber, will be returning once again for an original Peacock TV series. According to a press release, the new series will see Will Forte reprise his role for eight half-hour episodes, although it’s not clear if that will involve sticking celery in his butt. Fans can only hope.

Forte debuted with the character MacGruber in 2007 during his time on Saturday Night Live. MacGyver’s parody was such a hit that SNL Mega-producer Lorne Michaels created the character in his own 2010 film, directed by The isolated islandIt’s Jorma Taccone. The film was a box office failure, despite being the greatest comedy of all time. Shut your ass, America!

Plans for a MacGruber 2 have been around for years, with rumors that Netflix could be an obvious home. With the recent launch of Peacock, it made sense for NBCUniversal to keep ownership and talent in-house. Forte, Taccone and John Solomon (The last man on earth) signed on to write the series, with Taccone directing all eight episodes. Here’s the official premise:

After rotting in prison for over a decade, ultimate hero and uber American patriot MacGruber (Will Forte) is finally released. His mission: eliminate a mysterious villain from his past: Brigade Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in his sights, MacGruber must race against time to defeat the forces of evil – only to find that evil … can lurk within.

With COVID-19 limiting production worldwide, we don’t know when MacGruber can go into production.
