Big Shot Season 2-A raging basketball coach who throws a chair at a referee may not seem like the type of guy you'd want to hang out with, let alone have as a coach at an elite all-girls high school. However, there's a chance that you'll grow to enjoy him as the Disney+ series Big Shot progresses—and it's not only because he's played by John Stamos.
The fact that Big Shot, which is essentially a Mighty Ducks/League of Their hybrid and redemption storey, isn't technically a comedy, despite having humorous elements, is perhaps the biggest surprise. David E. Kelley was a co-creator of the show. (This is the same Kelley who created Ally McBeal, Doogie Howser, The Practice, Big Little Lies, and a slew of other great shows.)
“This isn't Sesame Street or Breaking Bad.” In a June interview, Stamos, who plays Coach Marvyn Korn, stated, “It's somewhere in the centre, and it's excellent.” “Instead of being edgy, this show fills it with compassion.” “It's a very warm, heartfelt show that isn't too cheesy or sentimental,” she says.
While this is true, Korn was not a nice and fluffy character in Season 1 of Big Shot. He arrives at Westbrook School for Girls after being sacked from a high-profile NCAA job and doesn't get off to a good start with his new team, telling one of his players she needs to shed five pounds. What was her response? “Everyone heard you were a psycho. They were mistaken. You're nothing but a bully.”
Korn, on the other hand, begins to pull himself together, becoming more of a mentor and less of a taskmaster as he establishes ties with his players. Even his teen daughter, who moves in (and goes to Westbrook!) when her mother (Korn's ex-wife) takes a job in Italy, learns to be a better father. Coach Korn eventually “becomes the guy he's always secretly wished to be and the father he never had,” according to Disney.
Big Shot was a hit with both fans and critics, with one calling it “one of the greatest original Disney+ shows in 2021.” One reason for this could be that the show is about more than just Korn; it's also about the young women he mentors. On and off the court, the show covers their lives. “It's about young ladies discovering their voice and shamelessly going after what they want out of life,” Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays the school's dean, explains.
Another reason for the show's success could be that having a show centred on young female athletes is still uncommon, even nowadays, and the young women on the Westbrook Sirens had to teach themselves how to play. “None of it was a hoax.” “There were parts I wished were not true, but they were,” actress Nell Verlaque admitted in April 2021.
Disney just confirmed that Big Shot Season 2 is in the works on September 2. Stamos is ecstatic. “At its core, Big Shot is about guts and heart, and Disney+ demonstrated that by granting us a second season,” Stamos wrote on Instagram, expressing gratitude to both fans and critics. “I'm very thrilled to continue playing Coach Korn, a man who learns to let go of preconceived judgements and learns from a wonderful group of women, who help him mature and grow,” he added later. And yet, he still has so much to learn…thankfully, Season 2 will provide that opportunity.”

Is Big Shot going to be cancelled?
Fans were excited to find out what happened to Korn and his team when Season 1 finished in June, so when there was no renewal news for weeks, they worried the series had been cancelled. Stamos, on the other hand, clung to hope. Stamos noted at the time, “I have a good feeling about coming back, but it's premature.” Thankfully, Disney confirmed in September that the show will return—and the answer was yes!
When will Season 2 of Big Shot be released?
It's unknown when Big Shot Season 2 will premiere, especially considering filming isn't expected to begin until 2022. The show will most likely air later that year. For More Information Visit EcTheHub
What happened in the first season of Big Shot?
(Spoilers for Big Shot Season 1 ahead!)
Coach Marvyn Korn was fired from his NCAA coaching position after throwing a chair at a referee, so he accepts to coach at Westbrook, a posh all-girls private high school. His tough demeanour does not endear him to the athletes. When Korn's mother gets a job in Italy, his daughter Emma comes to live with him full-time. Korn gradually softens his hard exterior and begins to form stronger relationships. People note the Westbrook Sirens' improvement on the court, including the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). Just as the Sirens are preparing for a huge game against the Carlsbad Cobras, the school offers him a coaching position. Coach Korn needs to come up with new plays, including one he calls the “Sacrifice Play,” after the Siren playbook goes missing and they suspect Carlsbad.
Coach Korn declines the UCSB job offer and instead chooses to remain at Westbrook. “I set out to develop a new playbook for the team, which I did,” he says before the big game, “but I ended up drafting a new one for myself.” Coach Korn proposes playing without supporters because of many pranks intended to put the Sirens off their game (including a swarm of bees that enters the gym!). Mouse throws the winning basket in a nail-biter after using the Sacrifice Play.
Who is in the cast of Big Shot?
Stamos, who is most known for his role as “Uncle Jessie” in the Full House franchise, wasn't expecting to play Coach Korn at all. He envisaged himself playing a darker role, possibly a lawyer, when he learned about the “new” David E. Kelley show he would be a part of. “I've never been athletic in my life.” He told Collider earlier this year, “I've never been into sports or watched sports.”
Fortunately, he succeeded—and Kelley is delighted Stamos was hired. “John Stamos' genius as Coach Marvyn Korn, especially, has touched so many hearts,” the writer/producer stated. Big Shot Season 2 will, of course, feature Stamos, and it appears that the following players from Season 1 will be among those on the floor with him:
Jessalyn Gilsig as Assistant Coach Holly Barrett
Richard Robichaux as George Pappas
Yvette Nicole Brown as Sherilyn Thomas
Sophia Mitri Schloss as Emma Korn
Nell Verlaque as Louise Gruzinsky
Tiana Le as Destiny Winters
Tisha Eve Custodio as Carolyn “Mouse” Smith
Cricket Wampler as Samantha “Giggles” Finkman
Monique Green as Olive Cooper
Are there any spoilers for Big Shot Season 2?
There haven't been any Big Shot Season 2 spoilers released yet, but there's lots of speculation about what might happen next. (Again, Season 1 spoilers ahead!)
Westbrook will continue as a Division II high school after defeating Carlsbad in the season opener. New basketball teams and personalities will emerge as a result of the adjustment, as well as more difficult playing obstacles. Will they be able to maintain their status as a Division II team?
The Season 1 conclusion also revealed that Assistant Coach Holly will take over as the new coach at Carlsbad, the team that the Westbrook Sirens nearly defeated. That implies a rematch with Westbrook is possible, which would be a high-stakes situation for all parties involved.
Where does Big Shot take place?
While the Westbrook Sirens appear to be playing in a genuine high school, Big Shot was shot on the Paramount lot in Los Angeles, California. COVID-19 wreaked havoc on the set, which was forced to shut down multiple times due to positive COVID testing. In January, Stamos remarked, “My son went to bed last night crying and woke up crying because he can't be with his father.” “I'm thankful for a job; it's a blessing at this time.” For the third time, I've been exposed to the virus, and I'll have to isolate for another ten days!”
On Twitter, Stamos urged people to take the pandemic seriously. He wrote, “I feel my job is doing everything they can to keep us safe.” “However, please follow the rules; your actions have far-reaching consequences that influence much more lives than your own.” Thanks.”
I feel my job is doing what they can to keep us safe. But people, please follow the rules – your actions affect so many more lives than just your own. Thanks
