“We are thrilled to be returning with Big Shot,” said Kelley. “The show has touched so many hearts — John Stamos’ brilliance, especially, as Coach Marvyn Korn. We look forward to Season 2 and beyond.” Stamos, whose Frank Sinatra Jr. kidnapping podcast Snatching Sinatra is currently airing, said that the series “represents everything Disney is to me — family, inclusion, and unity.”
He added: “But at its core, Big Shot is about guts and heart, and that is what Disney+ demonstrated by giving us a second season. I am sending lots of love to the critics and fans that got up on their feet and cheered for us from the sidelines. I’m so grateful to continue to play Coach Korn, a man who learns to let go of pre-conceived judgements and learns from an incredible group of women, helping him to evolve and grow. And yet, he still has so much more to learn…thankfully he’ll get that chance in Season 2.”
Big Shot Season 2 Plot
“Big Shot” follows Coach Korn (John Stamos), who, after getting ousted from the NCAA, is given a chance for redemption with a coaching position at an elite private high school. He soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic coach. By learning how to connect with his players, Marvyn starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and oﬀ the court.
According to the official press release, In Season 2, Marvyn’s (Stamos) latest plan toward relevance is to get his team broadcast on ESPN, and his method is to recruit an unlikely player: Ava (Sara Echeagaray), a gutsy beach volleyball phenom whose public tantrum got her ousted from her own sport. Between losing their assistant coach Holly Barrett (Jessalyn Gilsig) to a rival school, new friction amongst teammates, sudden and unexpected proximity to boys, and off-the-court disasters that no one could’ve predicted this season, the Westbrook Sirens have even more to prove.
