Why did Peacock pick up Killing It for Season 2?
According to Deadline, “We knew we had a rare gem with Killing It and are thrilled Peacock audiences sank their teeth into this series, led by comedic legend Craig Robinson,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television, and Streaming, in a statement. “We can’t wait to tell more twists and turns of one person’s hilarious, persistent pursuit of the American dream, from the incomparable creative minds of Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici and our partners at UTV, as Peacock continues to be a home for unique, thought-provoking and humor-filled comedies.”
“We are immensely grateful to everyone at Universal Television and Peacock. Snake-based economic satire isn’t exactly a familiar, beloved genre of television comedy, but they were fully behind the project from the start. We can’t wait to make more!” said Goor and Del Tredici in a statement.
“At its heart, Killing It demonstrates the wild ride we are willing to take when we are passionate about something, while also reminding us to support one another…because there are a lot of snakes out there! This series is a compassionate and hilarious comedy that anyone who has ever been in pursuit of a dream can relate to; that’s what makes it so special” added Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television in a statement. “We’re excited that Peacock has embraced this distinct show, and look forward to continuing our partnership with Dan, Luke, Craig, Claudia and the rest of this fantastic team on a season two.”
Killing It Season 2 Potential Release Date
The exact release date of Killing It Season 2 is yet to be confirmed by Peacock as of June 25, 2022, because the series was renewed just a few days ago. But on the bright side, as per many reports, the production will begin later this year. So, the fans seem to be assured that the upcoming season is not delayed and will be released sooner than they anticipated, as the renewal announcement was made by the network on time.
If we were to guess, we’d say the release date would be between early to mid-2023. Based on the previous season’s release date pattern, the series’ rollout, most likely, begins sometime around March 2023. Furthermore, we would want to emphasize that this is all guesswork at this time. As a result, Peacock will publish and confirm the official release dates in the following months, which fans should keep an eye on.
Killing It Season 2 Expected Plot
Killing It Season 2 is expected to pick up from the finale episode of the first season, The Storm, released on April 14, 2022. The episode was directed by Michael Weaver and written by Paul Welsh & Madeline Walter. The official synopsis of the episode states, “With the South Florida Python Challenge ending and a hurricane on the way, Craig questions everything that got him to this point.”
As a result, the pilot episode of Killing It Season 2 is intended to follow this already established idea which shows that the series follows as a comedy about class, capitalism, and one man’s attempt to live the American dream, Killing It.
In addition to Goor and Del Tredici, Robinson collaborates as an EP with Mark Schulman and Mo Marable. While it’s difficult to predict the second season’s exact plot structure this early on, it’s been speculated that the next season would pick up any cliffhangers and subplots and delve right into this world by giving fans something different to look at instead of the same old themes.
Many of the episodes have been favorably received by viewers, luring people to watch the series when it airs on television or via streaming service. So, it will be interesting to see how they deal with this added pressure and introduce something new to the series.
Killing It Season 2 Cast
The original cast from Killing It Season 1 is expected to reprise their roles. On the other hand, no additional casting announcements had been made by the network as of June 25, 2022. As a result, the following is a list of the series’ main characters:

- Rell Battle as Isaiah
- Scott MacArthur as Brock
- Stephanie Nogueras as Camille
The recurring cast members of the series are as follows:

We urge viewers to be patient because some casting developments will take time to emerge and the network will alert fans ahead of time if any new cast members or characters will be joining the future season.
