This week, Fox/Hulu released the finale of the latest drama series, “The Big Leap”, which is a drama about second chances, chasing your dreams and taking back what’s yours. The show revolves around a group of diverse, down-on-their-luck characters attempting to change their lives by participating in a potentially life-ruining reality dance show.
The entire first season is also available on Hulu. The series is currently being released weekly on Disney+ as a Star Original in many countries, including the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.
Recently, ‘The Big Leap’ Creator Liz Heldens spoke with Deadline about the possibility of a second season of the show and shared this update:
We are very hopeful about a season two! The show does well on Hulu, the cast is spectacular, it’s been well received and people who find the show really love it.
I hope the show will continue!
Fox ordered a pilot of the series back in early 2020, and it has been created by 20th Television, which holds the distribution rights for the series.
Fox hasn’t yet confirmed if the series will be returning, since the show hasn’t done very good ratings, pulling in an average of 0.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.27 million viewers in the live+same day rating.
If Fox was to cancel the show, Disney could continue the show, if they feel the viewing numbers across all of its streaming services, Hulu, Disney+ and Star+, warrant continuing to make the show. With the show’s creator, Liz Heldens, specifically calling out how the show is performing on Hulu, that could be a good sign.
Hopefully, we get an update on if the series will be returning soon.
