The series won’t have Wahlberg and would instead explore the early years of a younger John Bennett. Bennett would be played by Max Burkholder. MacFarlane would continue to voice Ted in the series. Seth MacFarlane spoke at the Producers Guild of America’s Produced By Conference and revealed that production of the series would start soon. However, he added that the post-production work for the movie would be a huge task. He said:

“You can move as fast as you want in production, and you’re still sort of at the mercy of the six, eight months, however long it takes for the CGI to be completed… So you know, in many ways, it’s what we just went through with ‘The Orville,’ [it] was just a massive undertaking of post-production. The show was just now airing, and I feel like we finished shooting a long time ago.”
