Arnold Schwarzenegger Spy Series Heading to Netflix

20th Century Fox

Netflix is set to be the home of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s first regular role in a series. 

Although plot details are under wraps, it’s known that the still-untitled series will be a global spy adventure that will follow a father (Schwarzenegger) and daughter, the latter of whom will be played by Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick, Stumptown).

The series was created by Nick Santora, known for Breakout Kings and Scorpion, as well as short-lived Quibi shows Most Dangerous Game and The Fugitive.

As first reported by Deadline, Netflix acquired the Skydance TV-produced project in a highly competitive situation. The hourlong series is going ahead with a script-to-series commitment, with Schwarzenegger also among the executive producing team.

Schwarzenegger, who recently underwent a second heart surgery, was last year seen in Terminator: Dark Fate and will next be seen in action-comedy Kung Fury 2. He’s also had a few projects circling a start for a while now, including Twins sequel Triplets, which is supposed to have Eddie Murphy attached as the third twin, and The Legend of Conan.
