Ted: the trashy and dilapidated teddy bear is back but not in the cinema Follow us

Nobody forgot Ted. Who ? But yes, you know… This little fluffy bear who gets high, drinks and only thinks about picking up girls. With two films, a very good one, then a very mediocre sequel, the creation of Seth Macfarlane“dad” ofAmerican Dadhad established itself as the last mascot of a gritty American comedy. But Ted hasn’t said his last (big) word. There he is, quietly preparing his comeback with great fanfare. But not at the cinema.

Fact, Ted is back in a future television series planned for 2024! Seth MacFarlane revealed a first picture of the show on X (formerly Twitter). Obviously, the teasing is appropriate. We only see Ted in the famous photo but, at the same time, he’s the star, right? The showrunner says in the caption: “Here’s an image from Framestore who have outdone themselves with their exquisite work on Ted’s special effects. Thank you so much to our friends in Melbourne!”Here, Seth MacFarlane refers to the studios that designed Ted for the series.

Ted : what will the series derived from the films be about?

Thus, as one might suspect, Ted returns in a prequel series to the two films released in the 2010s. The fashion being for prequels and others rebootsit’s not so strange to see the youth of this somewhat forgotten character in American pop culture unfold every day. We will therefore witness the youth of John, Ted’s lifelong sidekick played by Mark Wahlberg in the cinema, who shares the life of the trashy and broken-down bear. For the moment, the prequel series Ted does not have a specific date in the United States. Even less in France. We just know that it will be broadcast on the platform Peacock across the Atlantic. Wait and seeso… But it’s a safe bet that the return of the outrageous plush toy will cause a lot of noise.

Prime Video: this great classic of horror cinema is soon coming to series Follow us

There are countless adaptations of genre films in series format. Among the latest titles affected, Alien is about to be released in several episodes on the Disney + streaming service. According to The Hollywood ReporterNoah Hawley (creator of Fargo And Legion), will have the mission of carrying out this project which will distance itself from the cinematographic saga. “This isn’t a story about Ripley. He is one of the greatest characters of all time and I think his story was told perfectly. So I don’t want to touch it. It’s a story that takes place on Earth,” has already informed the showrunner to our colleagues at Vanity Fair. On the casting side, Alex Lawther (The End of the F**king World) and Samuel Blenkin (Peaky Blinders) will play the main roles.

While the return ofAlien is looming, a classic of horror cinema is preparing its return to the small screen. Produced by Steve Spielberg, Poltergeist by Tobe Hooper (Chainsaw Massacre) will be adapted into a series by Amazon Prime Video. According to Vanity Fair, the currently very mysterious project will be produced by Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, both behind Life on our planet on Netflix, on behalf of the company Amblin, parent company of the King of Entertainment. However, this is not a first for the film. A television adaptation titled Poltergeist: Raiders of the Supernatural had seen the light of day at the end of the 90s. No broadcast date for this second reboot has yet been communicated.

Why Prime Video is taking a dangerous gamble with its new series

(Re)adapt Poltergeist supposes assuming possible consequences linked to the rumors surrounding the production of a “cursed” film. The first, harmless, concerns the realization that we suppose to have been assumed by Steven Spielberg, officially credited as producer and co-writer, in place of Tobe Hooper. The other three stories are darker. First, young actor Oliver Robins almost died at the hands of a clown puppet who strangled him during filming. Then, her comrade Dominique Donne was killed by her companion the year the film was released. Finally, Heather O’Rourke, iconic face of Poltergeist, died following an infection during an operation. She was 12 years old and appeared in three opuses of the saga…
