The spy series with a comedic twist based on the blockbuster film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is now available on the platform.

A new remake of a familiar story is coming to the Star+ catalog: True Lies. This series is an adaptation of James Cameron’s 1994 blockbuster film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Like the film, the plot follows the life of Harry Tasker, a sophisticated spy for the Omega Sector intelligence agency, and his wife Helen, a language teacher who is bored with the monotony of her life. She is stunned to discover that her ordinary husband leads a fascinating double life.

The first season, which consists of 13 episodes, and is now available on streaming. Steve Howey (Shameless) brings Harry to life and Ginger Gonzaga (I’m Dying Up Here) plays the spy’s wife, named Helen (who in the ’90s film was played by Jamie Lee Curtis). The cast of the series also includes Omar Benson Miller (CSI:Miami) in the role of Albert Gib Gibson. His character will undoubtedly be a key player in the plot.

True Lies, also known by its original title True Lies, followed the life of this U.S. government agency spy, who lived a double life by keeping his true profession hidden from his wife and daughter. In that sense, it unfolded in a plot full of action, humor and family emotions, when his wife gets involved in his dangerous world.

Since its release, it became one of the highest-grossing films of the year, as it resonated with viewers and that itself allowed it to maintain its popularity for more than two decades. In addition to its commercial success, Jamie Lee Curtis won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for her portrayal of Helen Tasker. The production as such was also nominated for an Oscar for its visual effects.

Since its release, True Lies became an iconic piece of 1990s film culture. The thrilling plot, memorable characters and high-energy action sequences have kept this film in the collective imagination, proving its lasting impact on the Hollywood industry. Now, with the film’s adaptation into a television series, a new generation will be able to enjoy the excitement and humor that made this a cinema classic.
