In an inspiring message to his throngs of fans, Arnold Schwarzenegger shared an encouraging update on his most recent open-heart surgery, wherein he showed an amazingly quick return to his professional endeavors. The venerated Hollywood icon and former California Governor are 76 years old, and he took to social media humorously revealing his journey to recovery—a peep of himself showing off the new pacemaker.

Comments quickly lit up the Internet on Schwarzenegger's post Thursday afternoon, with one serving as a beacon of reassurance to fans worried how his health will impact the eagerly awaited second season of "FUBAR." "The outpouring of support has been incredible, and I am touched by the warmth from around the globe," Schwarzenegger wrote.

Most of the concern has been on my pacemaker and 'FUBAR' Season 2, but surely, the filming in April will continue as planned. It is there, but unless one looks really hard, you will hardly see it.

Austrian Origins Revealed

He had first made the revelation on the podcast "Arnold's Pump Club" the previous week.

He reflected on the cultural shyness that his Austrian upbringing held around discussions on health—a complete opposite thing as of now. The surgery corrected a defect in the heart that had been congenital—a bicuspid ajsonic valve, the condition with which Schwarzenegger had been born.

Last May, the action-comedy series "FUBAR" debuted to solid reviews; it quickly became a solid performer in Netflix's growing lineup of originals. Schwarzenegjson, besides starring, will also serve as an executive producer on the show and was announced the second season's renewal through its Tudum event weeks after the premiere of the show.

The cast includes Emma Brunner, Fortune Feimster, Jay Baruchel, Aparna Brielle, Andy Buckley, Barbara Eve Harris, Gabriel Luna, Milan Carter, Fabiana Udenio, and Travis Van Winkle, bringing more success and honesty to this show in its return next season.

Schwarzenegger's commitment to getting back to the sets post-surgery and clear communication to the fans stands for an attitude of resilience and commitment to the craft, promising the global audience a seamless and exhilarating continued FUBAR S2.
