Tina Fey is busy plotting her Netflix series The Four Seasons, and she’s bringing many of her past collaborators on board. Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte is the latest actor to join her in Netflix’s TV adaptation of the star-studded ’80s movie of the same name.

The Four Seasons came out in 1981, and it followed three married couples, whose vacation they take every season is suddenly ruined when one of the husbands leaves his wife for a much younger woman and decides to take her on a trip with him.

The cast of the original film included the likes of Alan Alda, Carol Burnett, and Rita Moreno, and its Netflix version will follow a similar formula, attracting some impressive talent. In addition to Tina Fey, who co-created this series alongside Lang Fisher and Tracey Wigfield, The Four Seasons will also star Oscar nominees Steve Carell and Colman Domingo, plus Kerri Kenney-Silver and Erika Henningsen.

Will Forte, who spent eight seasons on Saturday Night Live, is the latest actor to join this series. He most recently led Netflix’s crime comedy Bodkin, and his list of notable TV credits also includes The Last Man on Earth, Sweet Tooth, and MacGruber, based on one of his most popular SNL characters.
