Disney+ has confirmed that ‘Big Shot’ has been renewed for a second season with a video on Youtube. The production is said to take place in 2022.
The sports drama ‘Big Shot’ has been created by David E. Kelley, Dean Lorey, and Brad Garrett. Kelly said, “We are thrilled to be returning with ‘Big Shot. The show has touched so many hearts — John Stamos is brilliant especially as Coach Marvyn Korn — we look forward to season two and beyond.”
The dramedy revolves around an ousted NCAA basketball head coach, Marvyn Korn. He is given a chance at redemption with a coaching position at Westbrook, an elite private high school for girls.
Korn soon learns the importance of empathy and vulnerability for teenage players. While attempting to connect with his daughter and his players, he grows into the person he always aspired to be. The girls also learn to be more confident, in and out of the court.
Season one starred John Stamos, Yvette Nicole Brown, Sophia Mitri Schloss, Richard Robichaux, Nell Verlaque, Tiana Le, Monique Green, Tisha Eve Custodio, and Cricket Wampler.
In a statement, Stamos expressed his gratefulness about the new season:
“This show represents everything Disney is to me – family, inclusion, and unity. But at its core, ‘Big Shot’ is about guts and heart, and that is what Disney+ demonstrated by giving us a second season. I am sending lots of love to the critics and fans that got up on their feet and cheered for us from the sidelines.”
The first season of ‘Big Shot’ is available to stream on Disney+.
