Peacock has officially released a new trailer for MacGruber, the upcoming Will Forte parody which also stars Kristen Wiig.


The new red-band trailer sees the return of Forte as the titular MacGruber, in his third appearance as the character after a long run on Saturday Night Live and a 2010 film of the same name that failed to bring in big numbers at the box office.

Now out of prison after being accused of a series of murders, MacGruber is back and better than ever, pitted against Zane’s Enos Queeth after being recruited for a self-described “suicide mission” by Fishburne’s General Barrett Fasoose.

Here’s the trailer:

The series picks up ten years after the events of the film, where MacGruber has been locked up in prison for the brutal killing of Dieter von Cunth (Val Kilmer). But when a mysterious villain from his past, Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth (Billy Zane), threatens the world, MacGruber must reassemble his old team, Vicki St. Elmo (Wiig) and Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe), in order to defeat the forces of evil.

Creator Jorma Taccone of The Lonely Island fame returns to MacGruber’s universe to direct all eight episodes of the series, which promises to return to the overexaggerated violence that made Forte’s character so popular on SNL, getting himself into prison yard brawls and driving through walls in bright yellow sports cars.

The series also stars Sam Elliott (Perry), Laurence Fishburne (General Barrett Fasoose), Billy Zane (Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth), Joseph Lee Anderson (Major Harold Kernst), and Timothy V. Murphy (Constantine Bach).

Taccone, John Solomon, and Forte serve as writers, executive producers, and showrunners. Solomon and Taccone direct all episodes. Lorne Michaels, John Goldwyn, Andrew Singer, and Erin David are also executive producers.


MacGruber will premiere on Peacock on December 16th.
