Amazon has officially given the green light to a reboot of A League Of Their Own, except it’ll be in the form of a series. The newest show is said to star Broad City’s lead, Abbi Jackson, and Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden. Although the show is a rendition of the 1992 flick, it’ll not have Geena Davis or Lori Petty in the cast-list.
According to ComingSoon, the story will “begin with the formation of the league in 1943 and follows the Rockford Peaches, season to season as they struggle to keep the team alive through close games, injuries, late-night bar crawls, sexual awakenings, not crying and road trips across a rapidly changing the United States.”
“There’s no crying in baseball, or at Prime Video,” Vernon Sanders, co-head of television at Amazon, said in a statement. “Will and Abbi have taken a classic movie, reimagining it for a new generation with new characters and their own fresh, modern vision on a timeless story of big dreams, friendship, love, and baseball. We’re so excited to partner with Sony to bring this emotional, exciting new series to our Prime Video customers worldwide.”
CBS previously tried to make a reboot of the movie with Megan Cavanagh and Tracy Reiner, reprising their roles. Unfortunately, the series was cut after three episodes.
There is no release date yet, but stay tuned!
