Will Forte and Tina Fey Reunite for Netflix Series The Four Seasons

Will Forte and Tina Fey are reuniting for The Four Seasons.

On Friday, Netflix announced that Forte has signed on for The Four Seasons. The new comedy series is co-created and co-written by Fey, Forte’s former SNL castmate, who will also have a leading role.

Forte, a five-time Emmy nominee, is joining an equally lauded lineup that includes Oscar nominees Steve Carell and Colman Domingo, Reno 911‘s Kerri Kenney-Silver, and Girls5eva star Erika Henningsen.

The Four Seasons, about three couples who vacation together once every season, is an adaptation of a 1981 rom-com. The original film starred Carol Burnett, Rita Moreno, and Alan Alda, who also wrote and directed it. Fey will be taking on a similarly multi-faceted role with the series. Lang Fisher (co-creator of Never Have I Ever with Mindy Kaling) and Tracy Wigfield (a writer/producer on 30 Rock) are Fey’s co-creators.

Forte’s casting continues the actor’s relationship with Netflix. He most recently starred in Bodkin, a dark comedy in which he plays a true crime podcaster who travels to Ireland to investigate a cold disappearance case.

Forte was a cast member on SNL from 2002 to 2010, where he overlapped with Fey for four years. Fey began her own SNL career as a writer in 1997 and was named head writer in 1999; she was the first woman to hold the position. In 2000, she began appearing in sketches and was named “Weekend Update” co-anchor alongside Jimmy Fallon.

Fey left SNL in 2006 to star in 30 Rock, the sitcom she created about a head writer at an SNL-style sketch show. Since departing Saturday Night Live, Fey has returned to Studio 8H on more than two dozen occasions for both cameos and hosting gigs (six and counting). Her most recent appearance was on December 2, 2023, where she helped welcome Emma Stone to the Five-Timers Club.

The Four Seasons will begin production later this year.
