Looks like fans of Starz Wrestling drama, “Heels” has something to cheer about this morning. The premium cable channel announced that a second season will be coming our way.
Production on Season 2 will begin in 2022, Starz said in announcing the renewal on Wednesday.
“It’s clear from the critical and fan acclaim that the stories and characters from the Duffy Wrestling League have made a connection with audiences bringing a community that is not often found to premium TV,” Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO at Starz, said in a statement. “I’m excited for our amazing cast and executive producers to get back into the ring together for a second season.”
Mike O’Malley (“Shameless”) will return for the second season as showrunner and executive producer, and will reprise his on-camera role as DWL’s No. 1 enemy, Charlie Gully.
The series, which was created by Michael Waldron (“Loki”), stars Stephen Amell (“Arrow”) as Jack Spade, with Alexander Ludwig (“Vikings”) playing his younger brother, Ace.
I loved this show and thought the characters were well written and enjoyable to watch. Amell, who is no stranger to the ring, showed off his impressive skills in the ring and his acting chops as well. However it was Kelli Berglund’s Crystal who won the hearts of fans. An aspiring female wrestler who went from girlfriend to valet to champion by the end of the first season. I can’t wait to see what is in store for season 2!
