Created by Reggie Rock Bythewood and loosely based on the life of NBA icon Kevin Durant, Swagger is an amazing coming-of-age and sports drama from Apple TV+, that has fans balling at the prospect of Swagger Season 2.
The show’s wonderful combination of social commentary, teenage angst, and sports drama follows the incredible journey of Jace Carson from the local basketball circuit to the national finals along with his team and dedicated coach, Ike, where the young player and the team overcome obstacles and learn crucial life lessons as they chase their dream of becoming a professional basketball player and professional team.
But, will the story continue further in Swagger Season 2? Well, you don’t need to be a pro NBA player to figure it out, we will tell you everything you need to know about Swagger Season 2!
Will there be Swagger Season 2?
There have been no official announcements as to whether Swagger Season 2 has been greenlit or not. Considering the season finale has just premiered, the show’s viewership is likely still being taken into consideration before another season is confirmed.
But, the show has performed extremely well on Apple TV+ all things considered and they need further investments to fill in the gap of Ted Lasso if it’s on a season break. Plus, American audiences also need a local sports drama that they can relate too.
Swagger also has received generally favourable reviews and has a lot left in its story, there is an overwhelmingly good chance that another season of the show will be greenlit. If that happens relatively soon, and keeping in mind the show’s production cycle, Swagger Season 2 might land in late 2022 on Apple TV+
Who will be in Swagger Season 2?
All cast of Swagger is likely to return so see Isaiah R. Hill (Jace Carson) and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Isaac ‘Ike’ Edwards), who plays the star high-school athlete and his coach, respectively. Supporting members of the cast include Shinelle Azoroh (Jenna Carson), Tessa Ferrer (Meg Bailey), Quvenzhané Wallis (Crystal Jarrett), Jordan Rice (Jackie Carson), Tristan Mack Wilds (Alonzo Powers), and other Jace teammates.
From Caleel Harris (Musa Rahaim), James Bingham (Drew Murphy), Solomon Irama (Phil Marksby), Ozie Nzeribe (Royale Hughes), and Jason Rivera (Nick Mendez). In the potential season 2, we can expect them to fill the role they have filled before. But, as with any other sports team each season, there might be some player and staff shakeup to improve their performance.
What’s the story for Swagger Season 2?
Season 1 closes with Swagger DMV competing in the nationals against some of the best teams in the country. After an excruciating defeat, Jace decides to disobey the doctor’s advice and enters the court despite his injured leg. Eventually, the young star athlete takes his team to victory and also earns the MVP trophy, which he hands over to his long-estranged father who happens to be in the audience. Ike, too, deals with the ghosts of his past and reveals that he never cheated in his final match in his younger years.
The potential season 2 could pick up from Swagger DMV’s victory and see the team reach new heights on the basketball circuit. With the additional funding and recognition that their victory has earned them, we can expect to see the eager young players seize the opportunity and continue to display their burgeoning basketball prowess. However, every new chapter brings its own challenges and we can also expect Jace and his teammates to continue learning important life lessons as they cross each hurdle.
