A League of Their Own Season 2 Cast News Date Spoilers
Part one of A tournament of its own premieres on Prime Video on August 12, and co-creator Will Graham has said the team has written season two. The show is based on the movie of the same name, a rainy day classic for anyone who grew up in the ’90s, starring Geena Davis and Tom Hanks. It’s about how during the Second World War, female baseball players got their own league when the men were sent to war. The All-American Women’s Professional Baseball League was founded in 1943 and lasted until 1954.
The series has significantly more room to include new characters and storylines, and explores some themes that are more implied than obvious. The show, for example, is significantly more bizarre and actually deals with the truth about how many AAGPBL members hid their identities in order to stay in the league. It also deals much more directly with the history of segregation in African-American sports and leagues competing at the same time.
Here’s what we know about a possible second season so far (reveals for the upcoming season one).
There will be a second season of A tournament of its own?
It has not been officially confirmed that the show will continue and will likely depend on online views in the coming weeks. At the show’s Television Critics Association panel, Graham hinted that plans were in the works, saying, “We’ve already started writing and putting the story up for a second season… Hopefully… Ours is set to begin filming in mid-spring.”
He added, “This is a show that is more than just a show for all of us and for every single person in the cast… and we’ve held ourselves together all this time about what it means to be. tell these stories for 30 years after the film’s release. It was a life changing experience and we already knew what we wanted to do with season two. “
Part two of A tournament of its own About?
At the end of the first season, the Rockford Peaches had just lost the championship, but in the most gentle way possible. Carson Shaw, played by Abbi Jacobson, was planning to leave both her husband and her new love, Greta Gill (D’Arcy Carden), when the former caught her cuddling the latter. The potential consequences of this discovery will likely be part of season two, as will the pressure of keeping their sexual identities a secret.
Jo Deluca (Melanie Field) was traded off from Peaches, but as a star of the series, it’s possible the show will find a way to bring her back to Rockford.
And Max Chapman, played by Chantè Adams, is on her way and ends up throwing baseball like she’s always dreamed of. The show can explore her new adventures and budding relationship with her new girlfriend and pitcher co-worker. The first part also got her wife Clance Morgan (Gbemisola Ikumelo) pregnant and started the war with her husband. Will Max return home to help Clance through it all?
Who will be back in part two of A tournament of its own?
Most likely all of the people mentioned above will return—Abbi Jacobson, D’Arcy Carden, Chanté Adams, Melanie Field, Gbemisola Ikumelo – plus the main Peaches, who fill out the cast: Kelly McCormack as the role. Jess McCready, Roberta Colindrez as Lupe García, Molly Ephraim as Maybelle Fox, Kate Berlant as Shirley Cohen, Priscilla Delgado as Esti González, Rae Gray as Terri, and Dale Dickey as Peaches accompanying Beverley. Even though Max is on a business trip away from home, hopefully the series will return to see her uncle Bertie, played by Lea Robinson, and many of Max’s family.
