Peacock’s Most-Watched Original Series TED From Seth MacFarlane Scores Second Season Renewal

Peacock’s record-breaking most-watched original series TED has been renewed for a second season.  

Following its January 11 launch, season one of TED broke records as Peacock’s most-watched original title to date and was the #1 Original Streaming Comedy in the U.S. for more than two consecutive months (per Nielsen). 

The series was also a hit with viewers around the world. In the UK, TED was the biggest U.S. comedy launch on Sky in over 20 years; in Australia, it was FOX8’s #1 international series premiere on the channel in the past two years and the biggest U.S. comedy launch on streaming service BINGE; and in Canada, it was the #1 series on Showcase this year, while holding the #1 ranked show for streaming on STACKTV (VOD) during its season one run.

Season one of the TED prequel series features creator and star Seth MacFarlane alongside Max Burkholder, Alanna Ubach, Scott Grimes and Giorgia Whigham.  

TED comes from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, Fuzzy Door and MRC. 

The renewal of TED joins the additional seasons of Peacock Original series POKER FACE, BASED ON A TRUE STORY, BEL-AIR, TWISTED METAL, WOLF LIKE ME, DR. DEATH and WE ARE LADY PARTS, along with recent series APPLES NEVER FALL and THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ. Peacock’s upcoming roster of Originals includes THOSE ABOUT TO DIE (July 18), FIGHT NIGHT: THE MILLION DOLLAR HEIST, TEACUP, HYSTERIA!, and THE DAY OF THE JACKAL set to launch later this year. 

Description: In this comedic prequel event series to the Ted films, it’s 1993, and Ted the bear’s (Seth 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.
