Peacock and Seth MacFarlane Tease ‘Ted’ Official Trailer

The prequel to the popular film franchise sees Ted, whose fame has passed, living with and being an awful influence on best friend John; all 7 episodes stream January 11.

Seth MacFarlane and Peacock have released a trailer for the new series Ted, based on the hugely popular and funny live-action/animated hybrid film franchise. The prequel kicks off with a special streaming debut with all seven episodes on January 11, 2024.

In the show, it’s 1993, and Ted the bear’s (MacFarlane) moment of fame has passed. He’s now living back home in Framingham, Massachusetts, 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.

Check out the trailer:

MacFarlane serves as executive producer/writer/director/co-showrunner, Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh are executive producers/writers/co-showrunners.

VFX studios on the series include Framestore, Method Studios, and Tippett Studio.
