He'll be back...it's The Governator

With his years as California governor behind him, Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon return to his acting career with a new animated TV series.

The planned action-comedy cartoon is called The Governator, according to A Squared Entertainment, a partner in the venture.

It will focus on a superhero living a double life as an ordinary family man and Terminator star Schwarzenegger will provide the voice of the title character.

Comic-book legend Stan Lee is another partner in the project, which will be officially announced on Monday at the MIPTV trade show in Cannes, France.

The series is planned as the first stage of a franchise that could also include comics and films.
