For fans of the Seth MacFarlane franchise Ted, we have some great news: the very adult teddy bear is now front and center in a brand-new series appropriately titled, Ted.
In what is being marketed as a prequel series to the movies, it's 1993 and Ted is living in Framingham, Mass., with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett (Max Burkholder) as the bear's fame is in decline.
Want to know what else is different in the series? Here's everything we know about Ted the show.
Ted release date
Ted the series premieres on Thursday, January 11, 2024, on Peacock. The first season consists of seven episodes.
In the UK, the series airs on Sky Max and NOW sometime early in 2024. Once we know a specific release date, we'll pass along the update.
Here is the official trailer for the new series, marked with Seth MacFarlane's signature brand of funny.
Here is the official synopsis of the series:
"In this comedic prequel event series to the Ted films, it's 1993, and Ted the bear's (Seth MacFarlane) moment of fame has passed. He's now living back home in Framingham, Mass., with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett (Max Burkholder), along with John's parents, Matty and Susan (Scott Grimes and Alanna Ubach) and cousin Blaire (Giorgia Whigham). Ted may be a lousy influence on John, but at the end of the day, he's a loyal pal who's always willing to go out on a limb for friendship."
Ted is of course led by Seth MacFarlane who voices the teddy bear. MacFarlane is a powerhouse in adult animation creating and starring in hit shows like Family Guy and American Dad!
