Loki star Owen Wilson has found his next TV role.

Over at streamer Apple TV+, he's set to lead the cast of an untitled 10-episode sports comedy written by Ford v Ferrari's Jason Keller (via TVLine).

Wilson will play Pryce Cahill who, according to the official synopsis, is an "over-the-hill, ex-pro golfer whose career was derailed prematurely 20 years ago".

The synopsis continues: "After he gets fired from his job at an Indiana sporting goods store and his wife walks out on him, Pryce hedges his bets entirely on a troubled, 17-year-old golf phenom".

Maybe we have the Happy Gilmore of the small screen in our midst?

As for whether Wilson's time-meddling MCU show Loki will be back for a third season, showrunner Kevin Wright previously admitted he'd prefer to do a spin-off as opposed to a straight up continuation.

"For two seasons, I've loved working with this team… I would love to keep telling those stories with them, in this world," he told TVLine.

"I don't think any of us would ever want to rush into a season 3 if there's not a good story to tell. But I think this team could go off and tell other stories. Maybe it's not Loki season 3. Maybe there's something we can continue to do at the TVA, and it's like our Better Call Saul to Loki's Breaking Bad. That would be cool, to me.

"But I have to think, with how people have really enjoyed this story, that other filmmakers are going to want to come in and continue to tell stories [in this world]. That would be my hope."

Loki seasons 1-2 are streaming on Disney+.
