Family Guy Creator's Ted Movie Is Becoming A TV Series At Peacock
The potty mouth talking teddy bear is coming to the small screen.
A TV series based on Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane's 2012 movie Ted is in the works for the streaming service Peacock. The network has ordered a full season.
According to Deadline, MacFarlane is in talks to voice Ted the teddy bear again, but the site reported that Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are not expected to appear in the show. The TV series is a prequel to the 2012 film.
MacFarlane wrote and directed 2012's Ted, which marked his directorial debut. A sequel was released, and combined, the two movies made more than $750 million globally at the box office.
There is no word yet on the plot for the Ted TV series, apart from the fact that it's believed to be a prequel to the original movie. The series is about a talking teddy bear, so it could conceivably go in any number of directions.
As for the main Ted movie series, MacFarlane told Collider ahead of Ted 2's release in 2015 that a third movie might happen if the sequel did as well as the first one. It did not perform as well commercially, which might explain why Ted 3 didn't happen, but fans are at least getting a new TV show. As of yet, however, the TV series doesn't have a release date.
