Never fear FUBAR fans, star Arnold Schwarzenegger recently confirmed that filming on season 2 of the show will be underway as planned in April 2024 despite some recent medical developments.

Schwarzenegger recently had surgery to get a pacemaker installed, joking that he'd become "a little bit more of a machine" during an episode of his podcast Arnold's Pump Club.

Since sharing the news, Schwarzenegger has received many messages from fans wishing him well, but also inquiringa s to whether or not the pacemaker might impact the highly-anticipated second season of his Netflix action comedy series FUBAR.

To put fans at ease, the actor shared a photo of himself on X (formerly Twitter) to assure everyone that he's ready to get going in April. TVLine also confirmed this in a recent article, saying that Schwarzenegger's latest fan newsletter also stated filming on season would start "next month."

The first season of the hit series premiered on Netflix in May 2023, and it became a surprise success for the streamer. FUBAR marked Schwarenegger's first leading role in a live-action scripted series. His fans quickly flocked to the streamer, watching more than 220 million hours of FUBAR in its first four weeks on Netflix.

Thanks to its impressive viewership numbers, the platform had no choice but to give the show the green light for another season.

Here at Netflix Life, we’re breaking down all the latest news about FUBAR season 2 so you don’t miss a thing. The latest update was made on Thursday, Mar. 28, 2024.

FUBAR season 2 starts filming in April 2024

As mentioned, Netflix announced FUBAR season 2 is happening at TUDUM 2023. Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed the news to fans, along with the new blooper reel from the first season. Check it out below:

FUBAR season 2 cast

We shared who we expect to see in the FUBAR season 2 cast.

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

We don’t expect to see Gabriel Luna in the new season given what happened to his character in season 1.

What’s next in FUBAR season 2?

At the end of the first season, Luke and Emma are compromised, along with the rest of their team. Luke explains they need to lie low for a while because criminals and organizations from all over the world will be trying to find them.

We have to imagine that they’ll be working again in FUBAR season 2. There is still a double agent (Tina is secretly the Songbird) in the wind, and although the fans know who she is, the rest of the characters don’t!

Back in May 2023, creator Nick Santora spoke with TUDUM and said that season 2 would be "bananas," and adding that he and the writing team had come "up with some real fun surprises."

Santora went on to say that the entire extended Brunner family will have "a million things they're going to have to deal with" such as Tina secretly working undercover, as mentioned above.

" In Season 2, we’re going to go in knowing there might be a rat in the kitchen. And what are they going to do about that?"

Besides all of that, we also left off with the identities of Luke, Emma, and all of their fellow agents having their identities exposed, which is basically a death sentence in this line of work. "

"They're in deep dog doo-doo, for sure. They're in trouble," says Santora.

Has the FUBAR season 2 release date been announced?

Since the series is just about to begin filming for its second season, we likely still have a long wait ahead for season 2 to actually get a premiere date. I wouldn't expect the show to return until early 2025.

For reference, the first season took five months to film, so season 2 should wrap shooting by August 2024, and then it will go into post-production, which usually takes about six weeks or more.

We’ll share more information about FUBAR season 2 as soon as we find out. Stay tuned!
