FUBAR season 2 release date speculation, cast, plot, and more news

If you want to know more about Arnold Schwarzenegger's Netflix comedy series, here's what we know about the potential FUBAR season 2 release date and cast.

Arnold Schwarzenegger as Luke Brunner in FUBAR

What is the FUBAR season 2 release date? The spy-comedy series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger follows the story of a father and daughter working for the CIA, unbeknownst to each other. Once they find out, they have to find a way to work their issues (and a case) out.

FUBAR marks Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s first scripted leading role in a TV series, which is exciting after we’ve spent years enjoying him kicking ass in some of the best action movies. FUBAR stands for Fucked Up Beyond All Repair/Recognition, by the way.

But is there going to be more after season 1? Here’s what we know about a potential FUBAR season 2 release date. Warning spoilers for the Netflix series ahead!

FUBAR season 2 release date speculation

FUBAR season 2 was officially announced on June 17, 2023; however, we don’t expect to see Luke and Emma back on our screens until late 2024 at the earliest. 

The ongoing 2023 Writers Strike is playing havoc with production schedules across Hollywood, and the looming threat of the Screen Actors Guild joining them on the picket line also threatens to delay a number of our favorite TV series.

FUBAR season 2 cast speculation

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Monica Barbaro will both return as Luke and Emma Brunner, respectively, in season 2 along with the rest of the FUBAR cast.

Expected FUBAR season 2 cast list:

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger as Luke Brunner
  • Monica Barbaro as Emma Brunner
  • Jay Baruchel as Carter
  • Aparna Brielle as Tina
  • Andy Buckley as Donnie
  • Milan Carter as Barry
  • Fortune Feimster as Ruth
  • Barbara Eve Harris as Dot
  • Fabiana Udenio as Tally Brunner
  • Travis Van Winkle as Aldon

One member of the FUBAR cast who won’t be returning is Gabriel Luna, who played Boro due to the events of the season 1 finale. Spoiler, he gets shot lots and lots of times.

What is FUBAR season 2 about?

FUBAR’s season 2 plot will likely follow the repercussions of the team’s cover being blown after the finale’s wedding fiasco.

In season 1, Luke and Emma find out they’re both CIA agents, with Luke coming out of retirement upon request. When they start working together, there are some misunderstandings and relationship issues to iron out, but in time, Emma appreciates what she’s gleaned from her father’s experience, and Luke respects her abilities. It was a lovely take on the usual buddy-cop dynamic.

But the finale wreaked chaos: everyone’s cover is blown, and the CIA sends a van to get them on the move to safety.

We guess season 2 will see them as a solid team, tackling new problems with the help of Roo and the rest of the gang while continuing to develop their personal and professional relationships amidst the repercussions of their blown covers.

Is there a FUBAR season 2 trailer?

There’s no FUBAR season 2 trailer and we don’t expect to see one until around a month before the show debuts. 

Netflix released a full season 1 trailer on April 19, 2023, just over a month before the first episodes premiered. We expect the same pattern for a possible season 2. In the meantime, you can revisit the best Arnold Schwarzenegger movies or Netflix’s fun ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Back, Baby!’ video below.

Where can I watch FUBAR season 2?

You’d be able to stream FUBAR season 2 on Netflix if it were to release. The series is exclusive to the streaming service.

Netflix is probably hoping viewers will think the show is one of their best comedy series yet. If that comes to fruition, expect season 2 to drop all its episodes at once there when a new chapter arrives.

How many episodes of FUBAR season 2 will there be?

We think a season 2 of FUBAR would likely have around eight episodes at approximately 45-50 minutes long, just like season 1 has. But there’s no official announcement yet.

FUBAR’s first season has eight episodes with running times of just under an hour. 8 episodes is a good amount, giving us enough to last a while but not so many that they stretch the story thin. That’s a good benchmark for a second season.
