Abstract: 

The new Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab (E989) has been designed in order to further investigate the 3σ deviation of the Brookhaven result from the Standard model prediction. Such deviation could represent hints of new physics contributions and continues to generate significant theoretical interest. Except from the original BNL storage ring, E989 will employ a new measurement apparatus, from a new sets of calorimeters and a brand-new tracking system to new elements of beam delivery and muon storage. I will describe the key feature of the experiment with an updated status of the exciting work being conducted at Fermilab and future scheduled milestones.
