Arnold Schwarzenegger Has A Father-Daughter Spy Adventure Show Headed to Netflix
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't too old to play a spy, and this time his TV daughter is coming along for the ride.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will once again step into the top-secret shoes of a super-spy. This time, though, he'll do it on the small screen. A new, as-yet-untitled series starring and executive produced by the action star is heading to Netflix, Deadline reports.
The series is created by Nick Santora, who is also writing the Jack Reacher television show for Amazon Prime. Along with Schwarzenegger, the show will star Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick) as his daughter. The series marks Schwarzenegger's first attempt at scripted television. The last time he appeared on television was for his season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice.
The series comes to Netflix via Skydance Television, which previously brought Grace & Frankie and Altered Carbon to Netflix, as well as Jack Ryan to Amazon and the upcoming Foundation to Apple TV. There's no date set just yet. Schwarzenegger has played all manner of gun-wielding authority figure throughout his career from Colonel John Matrix in Commando to Sherriff Ray Owens in The Last Stand. This series, though, can't help but call to mind the 1994 Schwarzenegger vehicle True Lies, in which he played a spy whose identity was secret even from his wife, played by Jamie Lee Curtis.
Most recently, Schwarzenegger reprised his role as the benevolent T-800 in Terminator: Dark Fate. In our review, we praised his return to the role, as well as the movie for both breaking free of a string of bad Terminator movies and giving the franchise a fresh jumping-off point. Schwarzenegger may be 73, but he's clearly still ready to throw down on camera.
