Monica Barbaro’s spy career continues…
Netflix’s Fubar, starring the 32-year-old part-Mexican American actress and Arnold Schwarzenegger, has been renewed for a second season.
Fubar debuted its eight-episode first season on May 25, and follows a C.I.A. operative Luke Brunner (Schwarzenegger) who discovers a family secret that pulls him back into the field and delays his retirement plans.
Barbaro portrays his daughter, Emma.
Following the May premiere, Fubar opened with 88.94 million hours viewed in its first four days of availability.
Alongside Schwarzenegge and Barbaro as the father-daughter duo, the series also stars Fortune Feimster as Roo, Jay Baruchel as Carter, Aparna Brielle as Tina, Andy Buckley as Donnie, Barbara Eve Harris as Dot, Gabriel Luna as Boro, Milan Carter as Barry, Fabiana Udenio as Tally and Travis Van Winkle as Aldon.
Schwarzenegger also serves as an executive producer alongside creator and showrunner Nick Santora.
In a recent interview with Variety, Barbaro revealed that her off-screen dynamic with Schwarzenegger resembled their characters’ father-daughter history: “It was kind of perfect that we had this father-daughter dynamic, because we would just give each other shit all day. I think that helped us a lot to find that sort of familial chemistry. He was also kind enough to let me ask him anything about his experience and all of that”
