Arnold Schwarzenegger headlines first TV series in trailer for Netflix’s Fubar

Arnold Schwarzenegger (Predator) is back, baby, as he headlines his first-ever TV series, Netflix’s Fubar. The streamer released the first teaser trailer on Monday, where Schwarzenegger is thrown into the world of espionage.

Schwarzenegger stars as Luke, a CIA operative on the verge of retirement who discovers a secret involving his daughter Emma (Top Gun: Maverick’s Monica Barbaro). Luke, who has concealed his life in the CIA from his family, learns that Emma is also a CIA operative. With the discovery, Luke is now forced back into the field for one final job as Fubar depicts “universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, action, and humor.”

Created by Nick Santora (Reacher), Fubar is Schwarzenegger’s return to action comedy, a genre he took to new heights with smash hits like Kindergarten CopLast Action Hero, and True Lies. Schwarzenegger, who serves as an executive producer on Fubar, is looking to capture that same magic but in television form.

“Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like True Lies,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “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.”

Bio), Milan Carter (Warped!), Travis Van Winkle (The Last Ship), Andy Buckley (The Office), Fabiana Udenio (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery ), Barbara Eve Harris (Prison Break), Fortune Feimster (Velma), and Gabriel Luna (The Last of Us).

Fubar will premiere globally on May 25 on Netflix.

K-pop meets horror in Netflix’s trailer for Mask Girl
The two faces of Mask Girl.

If you don't know who Mask Girl is yet, then you're about to find out. Thanks to the success of Squid Game and other shows, more South Korean series are heading to Netflix this year, including Mask Girl. This show is based on Mae Mi's Mask Girl webcomic, and it follows a woman named Kim Mo-Mi through three different periods in her life. K-pop singer and actress Nana headlines the series as the young Kim Mo-mi, whose natural face remains hidden in the trailer below. Mo-Mi always felt self-conscious about her looks, which is why she adopted her Mask Girl persona and hid her face behind a mask. After plastic surgery, Mo-Mi is stunningly beautiful, but for currently unrevealed reasons, Mo-Mi's alter ego is apparently a murderer who has blood on her hands.

Netflix’s The Chosen One trailer brings forth the Messiah
Bobby Luhnow in The Chosen One.

Imagine growing up as an ordinary child only to discover that you are the long-promised Messiah and the second coming of Jesus Christ. That was the premise of Mark Millar and artist Peter Gross' 2004 comic book series, American Jesus. Later this month, Netflix is premiering the comic's TV series adaptation, which has been renamed The Chosen One. This show is taking some liberties with the original comic by transplanting the story into Mexico and the series itself will largely be in Spanish. But the heart of the story remains, as a young boy named Jodie (Bobby Luhnow) learns that he has divine powers. But those powers come with a price, as well as a legion of enemies who will do anything to make sure that Jodie never fulfills his destiny.

A vampire revolution begins in the trailer for Netflix’s Castlevania: Nocturne
Richter Belmont in Castlevania: Nocturne.

Two years ago, Netflix's Castlevania anime series pulled off a neat trick by giving every main character a happy ending, even Dracula! However, that happiness was never designed to last forever. This fall, the sequel series, Castlevania: Nocturne, will arrive, and it will restart the battle against the children of the night. And while Dracula may be out of the picture, a vampire messiah is prophesized to block out the sun and plunge humanity into a new age of darkness. That means another Belmont will have to take up the family business of hunting vampires.
