Heels Season 2 Release Date: Is It Happening or Not?
This year, “Heels” has been one of the most surprising shows on TV. The wrestling-themed drama on Starz was made by the head writer of “Loki,” Michael Waldron. “Arrow” star Stephen Amell and “Vikings” star Alexander Ludwig play two brothers who wrestle in Georgia for their father's promotion and deal with all the drama that comes with it. Rotten Tomatoes gave the show a score of 96% Fresh, which means that critics loved it. Fans have been begging for more of the Spade family's story ever since the Season 1 finale aired on October 10, 2021.
Here's a handy list of what we know so far about “Heels'” upcoming second season.
Heels Season 2 Release Date
Starz renewed Heels in November 2021, and filming ended in July 2022. However, fans haven't seen any new footage or gotten an official release date. Stephen Amell says that the delay is because of the split between Starz and Lionsgate.
“From what I can tell, they are now in the process of “untangling” that partnership,” the Arrow star said on Michael Rosenbaum's podcast Inside of You.
He kept going: “As they sort everything out, they are figuring out whose property is whose. So, we finished shooting on July 1, and we still don't have a premiere date or a trailer.” Amell did say that season two would be available to watch in “the first or second quarter of 2023.”
Who Will Be in the Cast of Heels Season 2?
Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig will definitely be back for season two. They will play wrestling brothers Jack and Ace Spade, which they did in season one. Here is the list of cast members of Heels season 2:-
- Alison Luff as Staci Spade
- Kelli Berglund as Crystal Tyler
- Allen Moldonado as Rooster Robbins
- Mary McCormack as Willie Day
- Roxton Garcia as Thomas Spade
- James Harrison as Apocalypse
- Chris Baure as Wild Bill Hancock
What Will Happen in Heels Season 2?
If Season 1 of “Heels” was so well received by critics and fans, there doesn't seem to be much reason for the show's creators to change too much for Season 2, other than continuing the storylines and character arcs that have already been set up and are waiting to be resolved.
Crystal became the champion of the Duffy Wrestling League at the end of Season 1 of “Heels,” but the good guy or “face” of the show, Ace, and the bad guy, or “heel,” Jack, were an impasse and didn't get along.
Also, Jack's marriage to Staci is in trouble, and it looks like Season 2 of “Heels” may focus on this as Jack tries to make up with both his wife and his brother/competitor. People have also wondered if Ace will quit the DWL, even if it's just for a short time because the show wouldn't be the same (or even possible) without him in the ring.
Is There Any Trailer for Heels Season 2?
As we know there is no official announcement on Heels Season 2. So there is no trailer yet. You can watch the trailer for season first of Heels below.
