One of 2021’s most underrated Disney+ Original series was “Big Shot”, which told the story of Coach Korn (played by John Stamos), who after getting ousted from the NCAA, a men’s basketball coach 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. 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.
Shortly after the first season finished being released on Disney+, it was confirmed that the show would be returning for a second season and today, during the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Disney gave an update on the second season.
In season two of “Big Shot,” Marvyn Korn (Stamos) returns to Westbrook with a new fire, ready to show that his girls basketball team belongs in D-2 and that he’s still the championship-winning, powerhouse coach he was in the NCAA. Marvyn’s latest plan toward relevance is to get his team broadcast on ESPN, and his method is to recruit an unlikely player: Ava (Echeagaray), a gutsy beach volleyball phenom whose public tantrum got her ousted from her own sport. Between losing their assistant coach Holly Barrett (Gilsig) to a rival school, new friction amongst teammates, a sudden and unexpected proximity to boys, and off-the-court disasters that no one could’ve predicted, this season, the Westbrook Sirens have even more to prove.
“Big Shot” stars John Stamos, Jessalyn Gilsig, Sophia Mitri Schloss, Nell Verlaque, Tiana Le, Tisha Custodio, Cricket Wampler, Sara Echeagaray and Yvette Nicole Brown.
Filming on the second season will resume production in 2022.
Created by David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies”), Dean Lorey (“My Wife and Kids) and Brad Garrett (“Single Parents”) and executive-produced by Kelley, Lorey, Garrett and Bill D’Elia (“Chicago Hope”),
The first season of “Big Shot” is available to watch now on Disney+.
