Kristen Wiig to Return in Possible “MacGruber” TV Show!

Finally, some Kristen Wiig-related news! And it’s nothing short of mind-blowing – we might get a possible MacGruber TV show! While talking to The Daily Beast, the now-cult movie’s director and co-writer revealed that he has been in and out of meetings in L.A., aggressively pitching a MacGruber television series to streaming networks. Here’s what he revealed during the interview:

“We just spent the last two days pitching it as a series,” reveals Taccone. “Eight-to-ten episodes. I’m really hoping that when you print this there’s an announcement that it’s actually happening, because I know nothing right now. This is the first time I’ve mentioned it, so this may be a tragic interview.”

And yes, the entire cast of the film is set to return. “It’s everyone. Val was blown up pretty badly, he’ll have half a head. Everyone is so down,” says Taccone. “What’s nice is that, when you make something that had the heartbreak of not doing so well financially… I would feel terrible if the people involved were embarrassed about it, but Ryan loves that shit, Kristen loves that shit, all the people involved are so psyched.”

“We’ve had so many ideas over the years, from the moment we stopped filming. I just love this character so much,” he says, referencing the years of chatter about a potential feature-film sequel. “We can expand the world now.”

Wouldn’t it be the best to have Vicki St. Elmo back – and for 8-10 episodes?! The character is definitely up there among our favorite crazy characters! Here’s a reminder for all of you who’ve missed her:
