The biggest twist of the season came towards the end of the season when it was revealed that Tina is a Russian double agent who has been spying on the CIA and NSA all along. She hasn’t revealed her true motives yet, but she might be trying to drain every last drop of information she can get from the CIA before informing the Russian comrades about her.

Why is Tina helping Luke and the CIA?

Despite being a Russian double agent, her true motives have yet to be revealed. Also, helping Luke, Emma, ​​and the other secret CIA agents is a great way to hide her identity and continue spying on the CIA.

When could we expect to see a second season of FUBAR on netflix?

Release dates are particularly difficult to predict with the ongoing WGA strike.

Filming for the first season reportedly occurred between May 2, 2022 and August 25, 2022. This means that the time between the start of filming and the series’ release on Netflix was just over 12 months.

Between pre-production, filming and post-production, at the very least, it could take anywhere from fourteen to fifteen months.

Given all this, we are not expecting FUBAR return until at least mid to late 2024.
