Amazon Studio has announced that A League of Their Own Season 2 will officially be ordered for Prime Video’s sports comedy-drama remake of the beloved movie. However, it will be its final season, which is being developed as a four-episode limited series. The renewal comes less than a year since the series debuted its 8-episode first season, which is currently available for streaming on Prime Video.
“We’re deeply proud of the work that Abbi, Will, the cast, and crew have done reimagining A League of Their Own which has produced an incredibly loyal fan base as well as achieved numerous, well-deserved recognitions and accolades,” Amazon and MGM Studios’ head of television, Vernon Sanders said in a statement. “After hearing what Abbi, Will, and the writing team have planned for the new story within this wonderful series, we are excited for our fans to see what comes next.”
The series stars Abbie Jacobson, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Chanté Adams, D’Arcy Carden, Roberta Colindrez, Nick Offerman, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Kate Berlant, Kendall Johnson, Kelly McCormack, Alex Désert, Priscilla Delgado, Aaron Jennings, Molly Ephraim, Melanie Field and Dale Dickey. In addition, Maybelle Blair, 95-year-old original All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) player, will return as consultant in the upcoming second installation.
“A League of Their Own evokes the joyful spirit of Penny Marshall’s beloved classic while widening the lens to tell the story of an entire generation of women who dreamed of playing professional baseball,” reads the synopsis. “The show takes a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the League and outside of it.”
A League of Their Own is executive produced by Jacobson and Will Graham. It hails from Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Field Trip Productions. Executive producers are Field Trip’s Hailey Wierengo, Elizabeth Koe, and Jamie Babbit, who directed the pilot.
