A decade after “MacGruber” opened in theaters and proceeded to tank at the box office, Will Forte’s beloved comedy character returns in an all new TV series that continues the story of the world’s most inept hero. MacGruber first appeared on “Saturday Night Live” when Forte was a cast member, and the character was subsequently adapted in feature film form for a comedy movie that was released in 2010. Over the years, “MacGruber” has amassed a devoted fan following, and Forte and the film’s creators have long teased an idea for a sequel.
