Seth MacFarlane will reprise the role of “Ted” in a new television series

Seth MacFarlane will reprise his role as Ted in a new television series.

The Family Guy comedian will reprise his role from the 2012 film, which co-starred Mark Wahlberg, for a live-action show at Peacock.

MacFarlane will direct, write, executive produce and share showrunning duties on the upcoming project.

The series takes place in 1993, before the two films starring Wahlberg. In the new series, Ted lives with 16-year-old John Bennett and his parents and his cousin in a working-class house in Boston.

“Ted may not be John’s best influence, but when it comes down to it, Ted is willing to put himself on the line to help his friend and his family,” adds Variety in a plot description.

Giorgia Whigham, Max Burkholder and Scott Grimes have been cast in the new series, but it hasn’t been revealed if any actors from the films will reprise their roles.

MacFarlane confirmed Ted’s news on his Instagram account, writing, “It’s time to sing the song of thunder.”

Elsewhere, MacFarlane’s Ted co-star Mark Wahlberg recently revealed that he has kept the penile prosthesis he wore on the set of Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie Boogie Nights.

Wahlberg appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week (April 12), during which DeGeneres asked the actor, “Is it true you still have the prosthetic you wore on Boogie Nights?”

“Yes, yes. It’s in a locked safe,” Wahlberg replied. “It’s not something I can leave out. All of a sudden my kids are looking for a spare phone charger and they pull this thing out and they’re like, ‘What the hell is this?! It wouldn’t be a good picture.'”

The film was released 25 years ago this year and also starred Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore and Don Cheadle, among others.
