Seth McFarlane's Ted prequel series renewed for  second season

Peacock has renewed Seth McFarlane's prequel series, Ted, for a second season. The series is based on the foul-mouthed Teddy Bear character Ted. The renewal comes four months after the premiere of the first season. 

Ted is set eight years after John (Max Burkholder) wishes for his teddy bear to come alive for Christmas, in 1993. While Ted's spotlight has passed, he is still best friends and a bad influence on the 16-year-old John. 

The CG animated character, voiced by McFarlane himself, was first introduced in the 2012 live-action comedy film Ted starring Mark Wahlberg in the lead. The film, written and directed by Seth McFarlane, spawned a sequel in 2015.

The cast of the series also includes Scott Grimes, Alanna Ubach, and Giorgia Whigham. Burkholder is playing the younger version of John Bannett, a character previously portrayed by Mark Wahlberg in the film. Ubach and Grimes will be playing Bannett’s parents in the film.

The first season of Ted consisted 10 episodes. Universal Studio Group’s UCP, MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door Productions and MRC are the producers of Ted.
