Produced by ABC Signature, this TV series is based on a franchise film in 1992 and serves as the follow-up to the original movie.
This American comedy drama sport TV series follows the story of the competition between hockey teams.
However, unlike the previous franchise, The Mighty Ducks in The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers is the villain who is very ambitious in winning every competition.
Evan Morrow one day is being cut from The Mighty Ducks because the coach thinks he is not good enough. He and his mom then decided to make their own team to beat The Mighty Ducks. With the help of a former Mighty Ducks coach Gordon Bombay—who is also the main protagonist in The Mighty Ducks franchise—they create a new Hockey team called Don’t Bothers.
Since the franchise was phenomenal, it is not surprising that The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers also receives positive responses. It successfully receives 7.5 out of 10 scores in IMDB.
So now fans can’t stop talking about the potential of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers season 2. Now let’s see what we know so far.
The Might Ducks: Game Changers Season 1 Ending
But before that, let’s recap The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers season 1.
So because of their skills, persistence, and also luck, Don’t Bothers make it to the final and will be head-to-head against The Mighty Ducks. Unfortunately, Sofi’s knee is badly hurt so she can’t play in the final, although she really wants to. That means Don’t Bothers will have fewer players.
The deal is, if The Mighty Ducks wins, Don’t Bothers will drop out of the league. Meanwhile, if Don’t Bothers win, the name of The Mighty Ducks will be theirs.
At the end of the season, it turns out that Don’t Bothers win, so now their name turns to be The Mighty Ducks.
