However, that happened way before the chaos burst in May 2023. You all are well aware of the ongoing strikes and how they have put several production houses’ work on hold. On August 18, 2023, Variety reported that Amazon scrapped the second season due to the WGA strike. Several hearts got broken, and another Chaos broke through.

Sources tell us that the renewal was done in the first place after months of renegotiations with Sony to lower the show’s licensing fee and after the cast had a sign new deals, given the order is for half the episodes that were featured in season one. Even Graham expressed how they started working on A League of Their Own Season 2, “We’ve already started writing and bringing the story for season two…We hope to shoot in, like, mid-spring.” Unfortunately, that’s not gonna happen.
