Disney+ has announced it has given the greenlight for a season two of the basketball dramedy, “Big Shot,” which stars John Stamos.
In the series, Stamos is a man named Marvyn Korn, who has been ousted from his position as head coach for an NCAA basketball team. He is given a chance at redemption with a coaching position at Westbrook, an elite private high school for girls, along with a chance to reconnect with his daughter.
The show, which was created by David E. Kelley, Dean Lorey, and Brad Garrett, will start production for the second season in 2022, with Lorey returning as showrunner.
“We are thrilled to be returning with Big Shot. The show has touched so many hearts -John Stamos’ brilliance especially as Coach Marvyn Korn- we look forward to season two and beyond,” said co-creator and executive producer David E. Kelley.
Stamos, a lifelong Disney fan, was estactic about the renewal. In a recent in person appearance at MegaCon Orlando, he said he felt truly blessed to be part of “Big Shot,” and he really enjoyed the cast and crew he was working with.
Here he is attempting to make the Season 2 announcement on his social media:
