Mike Myers is back with a new Netflix show. The Pentaverate, out May 5, shows the Canadian national treasure playing eight different characters. 

The Pentaverate is so far set to have six 30-minute episodes. The synopsis reads: “What if a secret society of five men has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347? As this new series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself. Remember, the Pentaverate must never be exposed!”

The range of characters Myers is set to play is extremely varied, including an old-school Canadian journalist, a conspiracy theorist, a far-right radio host, a media mogul, an ex-Russian oligarch, a former rock-n-roll manager, a tech genius, and the highest ranking member of the Pentaverate himself. 

Myers has recently joined Instagram, and it looks like he’s been posting teasers for the show. 


On top of Myers, the casting for The Pentaverate is stacked, including Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Lydia West and Myers’ Shrek 2 co-star Jennifer Saunders.
