Who woulda ever thought we’d be getting a “MacGruber” television series? Probably Will Forte, to be honest. Maybe Lorne Michaels.
Just this morning, NBC’s streaming service Peacock announced a whole mess o series and projects they’re working on, and “MacGruber” is one of the titles.
“After rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber is finally released. His mission: 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.”
“Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels will executive produce the series along with Forte, who is writing as well as starring in the “MacGyver” parody. Original sketch co-creators John Solomon and Jorma Taccone are on board to direct.

“MacGruber” will hit the service sometime in 2021.
