A League of Their Own season 2 release date speculation, cast and news

The story of the first women's baseball league was one of Amazon's best series, so here's what we know about the A League of Their Own season 2 release date.

A League of Their Own season 2 release date

What is the A League of Their Own Season 2 release date? This GLAAD-award-winning series delighted us with its well-baked representation, fun baseball games, and confrontation of the gender and race politics that kept women – and Black women in particular – out of professional baseball.

A League of Their Own was one of the best drama series Amazon Prime has delivered to date. It’s the brainchild of Will Graham and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson. Known for her work in that show, which is one of the best comedy series in recent years, Jacobson pivoted to more dramatic storytelling and hit a home run.

Earning itself a modest but devoted online community, and meaningful to the communities it put on screen, A League of Their Own stands as one of the best TV series from the streaming service. But is there any news about the A League of Their Own season 2 release date?

A League of Their Own season 2 release date speculation

We’re sad to say that, upon originally announcing a second season to conclude the series, it’s been reported in August 2023 that A League of Their Own will be cancelled without a season 2.

The show was primed to end with a four-episode season 2. It was an unorthodox order, perhaps in an effort to not add to the cancellation discourse synonymous with lesbian storytelling. It wasn’t much, but it was all us fans had to look forward to.

In August 2023, it was reported that the series would not be getting any episodes, and that the ongoing industry strikes had impacted the series to the point where Amazon decide to cut all loose ends and end the series sooner than expected.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote in August 2023 that scripts were completed before the 2023 Writers Strike, but this didn’t save the show, as the Actors Strike would inevitably lead to delays. Sony is apparently shopping the series to more of the best streaming services and networks, though, so don’t lose all hope. We’ll keep you posted.

A League of Their Own season 2 cast speculation

There was no official word, but we expected all the usual players to be up to bat for the Rockford Peaches in the A League of Their Own season 2 cast. If the season does get picked up by another streamer, we think this would stay the same.

That includes Abbi Jacobson, Chanté Adams, and D’Arcy Carden. None of the main A League of Their Own characters were killed or written off at the end of season 1, so we guess we will follow them all again to some degree. Due to the events of the season 1 finale, we also guess Andia Winslow, as Esther, will move up to a series regular.

The expected A League of Their Own season 2 cast list:

  • Abbi Jacobson as Carson Shaw
  • Chanté Adams as Maxine Chapman
  • D’Arcy Carden as Greta Gill
  • Gbemisola Ikumelo as Clance Morgan
  • Roberta Colindrez as Lupe García
  • Kelly McCormack as Jess McCready
  • Priscilla Delgado as Esti González
  • Molly Ephraim as Maybelle Fox
  • Melanie Field as Jo DeLuca
  • Kate Berlant as Shirley Cohen

What will A League of Their Own season 2 be about?

A League of Their Own season 2 plot would have likely followed another season of the Rockford Peaches’ baseball, as well as travel along with Max and Esther’s team.

After the raids of underground gay and transgender safe spaces in the first season, things changed. Jo was forced off the Rockford Peaches and joins another team, and Maxine went through her own self-discovery and decided to strike out on her own, leaving best friend (and comedic legend) Clance behind to join love interest Esther’s team.

The cancellation is really bad news, so it’s well worth cheering yourself up with this compilation of the funniest moments from the first season of A League of Their Own. It made us smile.

Where can I watch A League of Their Own season 2?

A League of Their Own season 2 was originally due to stream via Amazon Prime, but it’s now possible that a different service will pick up the show.

It’s not unheard of for fan support to bring cancelled shows back to life, so we may very well find out that the series has been picked up by Netflix, Disney Plus, or another platform in the future. Wishful thinking, perhaps, but not impossible.

How many episodes will be in A League of Their Own season 2?
