Today saw Disney release the final episode from the first season of “Big Shot” on Disney+. This series has been an underrated gem on Disney+, and one of my favourites shows to check out each week.

It tells the story of a basketball coach, who after getting ousted from the NCAA, is given a chance for redemption with a coaching position at an elite private high school. He soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic Coach Korn (John Stamos). By learning how to connect with his players, Marvyn starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and off the court.

With the series now over, many have been wondering if the show will be returning for a second season, and according to the DisInsider via StreamrNews, a second season is in development, and Disney want some bigger named guest stars to appear in the show.


The second season will also be shorter than the first season, which consisted of 10 episodes and will have more mature storylines include going deeper into Maryvyn’s dating life, which has all already been explored in the first season.

Other potential storylines include a third LGBTQ+ character, which could cause some issues for Mouse and Harper, who got together during the first season.    New team members are also being considered for the team, which would spice up the show.


Earlier this week, it was also revealed that Disney was also asking Disney+ subscribers in a survey if they would have watched more or fewer episodes of “Big Shot”, if it had all been released in one go, rather than week to week.  Showing that Disney is aware that this show had some problems breaking through and connecting with an audience.  It also didn’t help being released alongside two other shows featuring teenagers.

It’s important to stress that Disney hasn’t officially announced “Big Shot” is returning for a second season, and plans could change.

The entire first season of “Big Shot” is available now on Disney+.


Would you like to see “Big Shot” return for a second season?

    I would love to see Big Shot come back for a second season with the same amount of episodes. It’s an amazing show.

    I accidentally stumbled across the show and was hooked. I looked forward to watching it every Friday. However, it would be nice to release all the shows and then you could binge-watch them. Overall, I look forward to the next season. Love, love, love John Stamos and Yvette Nicole Brown in their roles! Also, let's just keep it real and let the two coaches hook up.

    Stumbled upon this show this week and chose to view based on 2 reasons: 1) sports related and not many live action family shows surrounding sports to watch with elementary school children and 2) John Stamos. We absolutely loved it and have already finished the season. I do hope there is a second season, but I would also hope they continue to focus more on the game and the relationships and conflict therein and not delve any more deeply or “maturely” on the romantic relationships due to my reason 1) above. I want to be able to keep watching with our son.

    Big shot has been a must every Friday for. My husband and I avid marvel fans who discovered the show on a podcast featuring John stamos. We are in our late 30’s. Our teens however will not watch anything that doesn’t have the whole season available to binge I think Disney needs to realize this for the teen shows

    My wife and I enjoyed this show. The filming and the obvious direction of the cast made watching this show a delight. Being in our sixties we still felt connected to the show for how the players and adults interacted together. Very honest approach to the situations in each girls life. Not that we were happy about the lbgtq aspect of the show but as the story progresses you don’t feel that you have to agree with what is going on in the girls lives. Interesting that neither parent of the girls has expressed their feelings about Harper and Mouses’ relationship. The show is good, funny, entertaining and real. Can’t wait for seasons 2 and 3.
