Arnold Schwarzenegger has been in the headlines this month for his heart surgery, specifically the installation of a pacemaker. However, the beloved action star and former governor took to social media to express his gratitude for the global outpouring of support he's received and to address any concerns regarding his health's impact on his professional commitments. Schwarzenegger provided reassurance that his recent pacemaker surgery will not interfere with the filming schedule of the much-anticipated second season of his show, 'FUBAR'.

In a heartfelt post, Schwarzenegger acknowledged the concern from fans about his ability to continue filming 'FUBAR' Season 2. "Thank you! I’ve received so many kind messages from all over the world. Many have asked if my pacemaker will affect 'FUBAR' Season 2. Absolutely not. I will be ready to film in April, and you can only see it if you’re really looking for it," he assured. The update was accompanied by a light-hearted image of the actor, humorously depicting his pacemaker as a cartoon ticking bomb placed over his chest.

This announcement follows Schwarzenegger's disclosure on a recent episode of his podcast, Arnold’s Pump Club, where he first shared news of his surgery. He used the platform to tell his audience that the procedure has made him feel more invincible, jokingly suggesting he's become "a little bit more of a machine."

Schwarzenegger's resilience was on full display when he described his quick recovery, "I’m doing great! I had my surgery on Monday, and by Friday, I was participating in a significant environmental event with my friend and fellow fitness enthusiast Jane Fonda." He went on to compliment Fonda's vitality and commend the medical team at the Cleveland Clinic for their exceptional care, stating that they made his surgical experience as "painless as possible."

'FUBAR' offers viewers a unique blend of action and comedy, starring Schwarzenegger as a CIA operative who finds himself in an unlikely partnership with his daughter, also an agency operative, portrayed by Monica Barbaro. Created by Nick Santora, known for his work on 'Reacher' and 'Scorpion,' the series debuted in May 2023. Its success led to a swift renewal for a second season the following June, much to the delight of fans.

Schwarzenegger's recent health scare has evidently not slowed him down, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to his craft and his fans. With the actor's assurance, viewers can look forward to the return of 'FUBAR' without delay, showcasing Schwarzenegger's indomitable spirit on and off the screen.
