Look, we will be the first ones to say we weren’t really convinced about MacGruber. Yes, we watched the SNL skit. And yes, we watched the movie. And yes, maybe we laughed …but did we really need a TV show about it all these years later? What could the show give us that we hadn’t already gotten before?
Turns out, the answer is more laughs. And that’s never a bad thing.
Fangirlish had a chance to speak to stars Ryan Phillippe & Joseph Lee Anderson about the reasons why the show is still relevant, as well as why, in 2021, we should give it a chance. You can check out our full interview below:
After rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber (Will Forte) is finally released. His mission: to take down a mysterious villain from his past—Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth (Billy Zane). With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber must reassemble his old team, Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig) and Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe), in order to defeat the forces of evil.
MacGruber will be available on Peacock December 16th.
