Pop Culture Fix: “A League of Their Own” Is Already Peeping Second Season

How was your weekend binging A League of Their Own, friends? So good, I hope! I made you a Pop Culture Fix while watching it all through for a second time!


+ A League of Their Own is already eyeballing a season two. The producers chatted to Variety about a potential mid-spring production start for Prime Video’s GAYEST SHOW EVER. Amazon hasn’t yet announced a season two, but the show has topped the Prime viewers chart since it debuted on Friday, and EP Will Graham told reporters at the Television Critics Association panel last week: “We’ve already started writing and bringing the story for Season 2. Our hope is to shoot in like, mid-spring. And we’ll see how that works out with everything coming to this a lot. You know, this is our launch day. We’ve all been working on this show for such a long time. And we get to now have this moment of seeing how it connects with the world and everything else comes after from there. But we’re just so happy to be proud to be in this moment and be telling these stories and we can’t wait to go back and do more.” Neither can we, Will Graham! Neither can we!
