The streaming service has given an eight-episode order to the half-hour action comedy based on Forte's SNL sketches and 2010 feature film. Peacock’s take on MacGruber will "begin with the main character, described as America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot, being released from prison after rotting in there for over a decade," per Variety. "His new mission will be to take down a mysterious villain from his past—Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber must race against time to defeat the forces of evil, only to find that evil may be lurking within." Watch the MacGruber announcement trailer.
