Will there be Season 2 of 'FUBAR'? Arnold Schwarzenegger's Netflix series ends on a cliffhanger
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Netflix’s father-daughter spy comedy ‘FUBAR’ is a treat for fans of Arnold Schwarzenegger who had been dying to see their icon on TV for once. Their wishes have now been fulfilled and in some style by the US streaming giant, which keeping in line with the action-packed reputation of the former Governor of California, has come up with a series that allows Arnold to prosper. We see him in his ‘Kindergarten Cop’ and ‘Jingle All the Way’ avatar, using both humor and action brilliantly to entertain us all.
The star of ‘The Terminator’ franchise is supported by breakout star Monica Barbaro, who plays his daughter and a CIA agent who keeps the job secret from his father. The father-daughter is assigned on a mission together as they continue to juggle their differences and long-standing problems in the face of mounting trouble from a deceased mercenary’s son. The result is a predictable yet at times humorous tale of a father and daughter trying to establish common ground to accomplish the mission. The supporting cast of Travis Van Winkle, Fortune Feimster, Milan Carter, Aparna Brielle, Jay Baruchel, and Fabiana Udenio, pitch in with their jokes and quirks which at times are too hard to tune into. But the standout performances of Arnold and Monica make up amply for a loose plot. This should be enough for Netflix to come up with a second season but a lot of considerations need to be taken before a decision is made.

Will there be a Season 2 of ‘FUBAR’?
At present, Netflix has not announced a second season for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ‘FUBAR.’ The streaming giant might evaluate the ratings and the reactions to the series and then arrive at a decision. The first season that aired on May 25, 2023, on Netflix, ended on a cliffhanger with Luke Brunner (Arnold) and Emma Brunner’s (Monica) true identities as CIA agents revealed to the rest of the members of their family. The father-daughter duo might have killed Boro, the antagonist of season one, but his death has led to a ripple effect that is now bound to bring many other extremists to the door of the Brunners.
The second season might see Luke and Emma on the run with their family, dodging bad guys instead of just facing them. Aldon (Travis) and Roo (Fortune) are expected to join them in their endeavors while Carter (Emma’s ex-fiance) will be trying to rekindle his relationship with Emma after learning about her identity. However, Luke who just saved his ex-wife Tally’s (Fabiana) life will look to kick start his relationship again with her, all the while running away from the bad guys.
Will the WGA strike affect ‘FUBAR’s’ Season 2?
The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has been on strike since early May 2023 after talks of better compensation fell off the wagon with the studios. If the strike continues for a long time, Netflix will reconsider spending time and resources on a project that wasn’t adequately received by the viewers. Even with a resolution, ‘FUBAR’ will not be available to stream until the latter half of 2024.
