Netflix is always open to experimentation and comes up with quality content to surprise its fans from across genres. Only recently has Netflix ventured into sports-related dramas, thrillers, talk shows, and docuseries to allow audiences a chance to know their favorite icons through a new lens. Though many sports, like Cricket, have not gotten into this completely, Football and Basketball have been quite responsive.
One such show that made its premiere in 2023 was Quarterback. A docuseries based on the Quarterbacks of the Kansas City Chiefs from the 2022 NFL season. After the show got much due love, fans and makers are looking forward to a second season. The question remains-Is there a second season? Let us delve deeper.
Is Quarterback Season 2 Renewed?
Until now, Netflix has not officially updated or provided an announcement stating the renewal of Quarterback Season 2. However, a statement by the former NFL Quarterback Peyton Manning, also the creator of the show, stated that the work on a new season has begun post-approval from Netflix. His official quote in the show read, “Season 2 has been greenlit by Netflix, we’re excited, we’re hoping for more quarterbacks, it’s easier to say yes. I don’t want to hear ‘It’s going to be a distraction’ because that’s not true, Patrick Mahomes proved that Kirk Cousins proved that, and Marcus, the way he handled that, proved that. We’re hoping that guys after seeing it say this is going to be a cool thing that I can show to my kids when I’m older, show to my grandkids one day. Hopefully the pitch will be easier.”
Quarterback Season 2 Release Date:
The first season premiered in July 2023, and as it takes time to match schedules with all Quarterbacks, the show will not return anytime before 2024, as the show’s format will remain the same. Season 1 covered the 2022 NFL season, whereas Season 2 will cover the 2023 NFL Season. For these reasons, the show will not return before May 2024.
