David E. Kelley’s sports-centered Disney+ dramedy series, Big Shot, has officially been given a thumbs up for a second season. The show’s production will start sometime in 2022. The second season comes right after the John Stamos-led series finished its first 10-episode season.
“We are thrilled to be returning with Big Shot,” Kelley said in a statement. “The show has touched so many hearts -John Stamos’ brilliance, especially as Coach Marvyn Korn- we look forward to season two and beyond.”
John Stamos added,
“This show represents everything Disney is to me – family, inclusion, and unity. But at its core, @BigShotSeries is about guts and heart, which 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.
I’m so grateful to continue playing Coach Korn, a man who learns to let go of preconceived judgments and learns from an incredible group of women, helping him evolve and grow. And yet, he still has so much more to learn… thankfully, he’ll get that chance in season two.”
Big Shot explores the life of Coach Korn, who, after getting the boot from the NCAA, gets the opportunity to coach at an elite private high school.
He quickly learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability, which is unfamiliar to the coach.
He learns how to connect with his players and grows into who he hoped to be in time. Likewise, the girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their foothold both on and oﬀ the court.
The show stars John Stamos, Jessalyn Gilsig, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Richard Robichaux.
