What The New Ted Trailer Means For The TV Show
The new prequel series trailer reveals the show will have the same style of humor as the original movies. Despite Mark Wahlberg not returning as John, the decision to make the series about the characters when they were younger opens new opportunities for the story and humor. While this indicates the unconfirmed Ted 3 may not be in the franchise’s future, it sets up a new identity for its universe to explore.
The new trailer also offered a better look at the series’ cast, which includes Seth MacFarlane returning to voice Ted and Max Burkholder as John. Other key actors who make up the Bennett family include Alanna Ubach (Coco), Scott Grimes (American Dad!), and Giorgia Whigham (The Punisher). Given the level of talent in front of the camera, the comedic moments throughout the show are sure to be elevated by its actors.
Promising adult humor while following younger versions of the characters, Ted appears to be a worthy follow-up to its previous film incarnations. While the show is being billed as an event series, it could help to revitalize the franchise depending on how successful it is. No matter its level of success, the trailer clarifies just how close to the movie its humor will feel.
