This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the Amazon Prime original series A League of Their Own (2022) and its renewed or cancelled status.
When I first heard about an A League of Their Own remake, I immediately envisioned a Penny Marshall classic that was a winning, heartfelt comedy about a group of people who defied expectations. The film was such a massive hit that it inspired a spin-off television series on CBS. Maybe this show could put the “fun” back in baseball films and series. However, the latest version is layered series about oppression in America in the middle of World War 2.
However, created and produced by Abbi Jacobsen (Broad City) and Will Graham (Movie 43), the updated series stars Jacobson, Chante Adam, D’Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, and Nick Offerman. This Prime Video streaming series is flawlessly produced. Jacobson and Graham also cut down on the laughs by offering constantly surprising themes on how these women operate in the shadows.
Will there be a season 2 of the Amazon original series A League of Their Own — renewed or canceled status?
As we mentioned above, A League of Their Own has a bit of history. The comedy classic was already spun off in 1993. The Sam McMurray and Carey Lowell vehicle was shelved after four episodes and returned in August for one more before being canceled for good. (The last episode never aired). Will the new series get an early pull?
Well, of course not. This is streaming, and Prime Video is dropping all eight episodes on August 12th, this Friday! (I will let you in on a little secret — Prime usually drops their series five to six hours early). Amazon normally does not cancel series after one season (sorry, Night Sky), and this is a series with a natural shelf life covering the league’s existence. The series also reflects today’s social conscience, being timely and relevant while revisiting a story perfectly tailored for Hollywood.
The real question is, will fans of the original be taken back by the relevant subject matter and themes? These are areas the original film hardly touched. This will be an interesting question but hard to gauge. All we know is we cannot wait to see this answered because we want a second season.
Prediction: Expect A League of Their Own to be renewed at some point after Labor Day.
