Netflix has dropped a gloriously profane trailer for “History of Swear Words,” a six-part comedy series on cursing hosted by “National Treasure” screen icon Nicolas Cage, 56.
The two-minute teaser released Tuesday opens — fittingly enough — with the “Face/Off” and “Raising Arizona” actor uttering a bloodcurdling F-bomb, before inviting viewers to join him “on a journey through the history, evolution and cultural impact of swear words.”
To shed light on the taboo topic, each 20-minute episode the “Moonstruck” star will welcome a smorgasbord of etymology experts, historians and celebrities explaining the origins of profanities ranging from “f – – k” to “pussy.”
Cage’s roster of guest stars includes Nick Offerman, Sarah Silverman and Patti Harrison in the celebrity category and cognitive scientist Benjamin Bergen, linguist Anne Charity Hudley and lexicographer Kory Stamper in the expert field.
“History of Swear Words” premieres Jan. 5 on Netflix.
