When Ted was released in the summer of 2012, few could have anticipated just how big of a hit it would become, taking in just short of $550 million at the box office. The sequel, while underperforming in comparison, still managed to become a box office success. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that Universal would make another attempt at keeping the franchise alive.
Today it was announced that a Ted prequel series is in the works at Peacock. The series received a straight-to-series 10 episode order, with Seth MacFarlane expected to be returning to voice Ted and we imagine as creator/executive producer.
As of right now, the film’s star Mark Wahlberg is not attached. And with the series being a prequel, it can easily be done without him. So we’ll have to see how this shapes up.
