Ever wondered where words like *&^ or mother f&%ker came from? Well look no further! Join the greatest actor of our time, Nicolas Cage, for an education in expletives. This six-part comedy series explores the origins, pop culture-usage, science and cultural impact of curse words.
Cage begins the trailer for this new series in quite the epic fashion, but you’ll probably want to have the kids leave the room or put on some headphones before you watch the trailer above.
Nicolas Cage isn’t the only one diving into the history of swear words. In addition to experts on history and language, there’s also some commentary from comedians Sarah Silverman and Nikki Glaser, film critic Elvis Mitchell, and many more. Though not featured in the trailer, there will also be appearances by Jim Jefferies, Nick Offerman, Baron Vaughn, and Isiah Whitlock Jr., and if you’ve seen The Wire, you know which word the latter will be talking about.
History of Swear Words premieres January 5, 2021, on Netflix.
