Ted prequel series in the works

Seth MacFarlane is in talks to reprise his role but Mark Wahlberg is not attached to the project.

A TV adaptation of Seth MacFarlane’s Ted is in development. 

US streaming service Peacock confirmed that they’ve given the show, which will serve as a prequel to the 2012 film, a ten episode, straight-to-series order. 

MacFarlane is set to write and executive produce and is currently in the midst of negotiations to return as the voice of the foul mouthed, stoner bear. 

Ted starred Mark Wahlberg as John who as an eight year old wished for his teddy bear to come to life. 27 years later, the two are still best friends much to the annoyance of John’s girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis) who wants him to move on with his life. 

Despite receiving mixed critical reviews, it was a huge box office success grossing $549.4 million against a $65 million budget.  

A sequel followed in 2015 which saw Amanda Seyfried replace Kunis as John’s love interest as Ted fights for his legal right to be recognized as a human being. 

None of the above cast are set to reprise their roles in this prequel series. 

NBC Universal has said that Peacock will be available in the UK at some point but specific launch date has not been confirmed. 

Ted 2 is available to stream on Netflix now.
