Since returning to the movie industry after serving as Governor of California, Schwarzenegger has worked regularly in Hollywood. He is one of the stars of The Expendables franchise, and according to co-star Randy Couture, the fourth installment of the series could begin filming this year. He also appeared in 2015 Terminator Genisys and returned to the sci-fi franchise once again in 2019 for the sequel Terminator: Dark Fate. He’s set to appear as president in the upcoming comedy sequel Kung Fury 2.

Recently, Schwarzenegger created the new Superhero Kindergarten animated series. Created for Kartoon Channel by Fabian Nicieza, the series was conceived by Schwarzenegger and Stan Lee when Arnold told the late Marvel creator how badly he wanted to make a Kindergarten cop after. The cartoon series features the voice of Arnold as Arnold Armstrong, aka Captain Courage, a superhero who works undercover as a kindergarten teacher to raise a new generation of superhero children .

Over the years, Schwarzenegger has had various live appearances on television, but not in the lead role of a scripted series. He has appeared on shows like Tales from the Crypt and Two and a half men. In 2017, he replaced Donald Trump as the new host of the reality TV series The new celebrity apprentice. After one season, Schwarzenegger declared that he would not be returning to the show, and NBC officially canceled it months later.

“I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett,” Schwarzenegger said at the time. “Everyone – from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department – was a straight 10, and I would work with them all again on a show that doesn’t have that background.

As for Arnold’s upcoming scripted spy series starring Monica Barbaro, creator Nick Santora will also serve as showrunner and executive producer along with Schwarzenegger, Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost. A release date has yet to be set by Netflix, but with the series’ order, production can’t be too far away. This news comes to us from Hollywood journalist.
