Cooper’s Bar Season 2 Release Date and Episodes
Yes, it is official! AMC+ has finally renewed the series for a second season this year. The exact release date for the upcoming season is yet to be revealed by the network as the renewal announcement was made recently, which makes it way too early for any network to disclose such information. On the bright side, it is expected that the upcoming season will follow the footsteps of the predecessor season and have at least 6 episodes to continue the storyline in a consistent manner.
The official Instagram handle of AMC Networks also confirmed the renewal by sharing a post with their followers, quoting, “You want more Cooper Marino, you’ve got more Cooper Marino. Season 2 of #CoopersBar, starring Emmy-nominee @rheaseehorn, is coming soon. #TCA22″ Take a look at the post below:

Cooper’s Bar Season 2 Plot
According to Deadline, Cooper’s Bar Season 2 will pick up where season one left off, with a freshly signed contract to develop the “authentic” Tiki Bar TV series featuring Cooper and his gang of misfits as they navigate the many trials of first-time Hollywood professionals in a series of meta-comedic episodes. Seehorn will also return in her co-starring role.
The series is expected to continue from the finale episode of Season 1, Kris & Cooper’s Hot Wings Face-Off, which was released on June 9, 2022. The episode is directed by Rhea Seehorn, Hannah Davis, Alfredo De Villa, and Nick Morton and written by David Conolly, Nick Morton, and Hannah Davis. In the episode, the viewers got to see that Cooper and Kris face off in a hot wing eating showdown that will determine the fate of Cooper’s Bar once and for all.
“We knew we had to follow the story of this crew of has-beens, never-was’s, and maybe could be’s into a second season,” said Kevin Dreyfuss, senior vice president of Content Room digital originals. “Shows like ‘Cooper’s Bar’ are great creative playgrounds for our AMCN talent and a way to serve the fans something fresh. It was great to collaborate with Rhea and everyone else associated with the show on both sides of the camera for season one and we are looking forward to a fantastic season two.”
Moreover, the theme for the season has been established by all of the prior episodes, and it will continue to develop and extend in ways that will draw fans to the show. On the other hand, the following season can decide to shift its strategy and go in an entirely new direction. It will be interesting to watch how they handle this additional pressure and bring something fresh to the series for a satisfying ending. The network will reveal all of these details as the release date approaches, so viewers need only wait a little while.
