Heels Season 2 (2022): “Heels” has been one of the year’s biggest television surprises.
Starz’s wrestling-themed drama stars “Arrow” alum Stephen Amell and “Vikings” star Alexander Ludwig as two brothers who engage in their father’s wrestling organization in Georgia and cope with the turmoil that ensues.
Rotten Tomatoes gave the program a 96 percent Fresh rating, signifying positive reviews. It got a second season quickly.
Starz has discovered another success, and who knows, maybe this series could be nominated for an Emmy next year. Since the Season 1 conclusion on October 10, 2021, fans have been clamoring for more Spade family drama. Here’s all we know about the forthcoming second season of “Heels.”
When Will Heels Season 2 Be Released?
Season 2 of “Heels” will not begin production until next year, so fans anticipating a late summer launch may have to wait a bit longer.
Season 1 was largely filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, from February 2020 to March 2020 because of the continuing COVID-19 epidemic (via Bleeding Cool). A tweet from Amell says filming began in September and ended in April of the following year.
Season 2 will not be available until late next year at the earliest, with a possible release in the spring of 2023.
Season 2 of The Crown is expected to debut between June 1 and May 31, the Emmy qualifying period.
Who Is in Season 2 of Heels?
Amell and Ludwig, who played brothers Jack and Ace Spade in Season 1, will reprise their roles in Season 2. Amell gained prominence in the CW series “Arrow” as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, while Ludwig has appeared in films such as “The Hunger Games,” “Bad Boys,” and “Vikings.”

According to Deadline, Trey Tucker and Robby Ramos, who portrays Bobby Pin and Diego Cottonmouth, have been upgraded to regular cast members. We may see more of them in season two of “Heels.”
It’s uncertain whether CM Punk, who portrayed Ricky Rabies in Season 1, would return after signing with All Elite Wrestling, according to Sports Illustrated. In the second season, new characters will enter the ring, but who they will be is unknown.
What Is the Plot of Season 2 of Heels?
The first season of “Heels” finished with Crystal becoming the DWL champion and Ace and Jack feuding. Jack and Staci’s marriage is also in jeopardy. This season appears to be mostly focused on Staci, as well as Jack’s attempts to make amends with both his brother and his wife.
There has also been talking over whether Ace will leave the DWL, even if just for a short time because the program would be incomplete without him in the ring.
Showrunner and executive producer Mike O’Malley will return for Season 2, according to Deadline. Charlie Gully, the promoter of Florida Wrestling Dystopia, will also return.
Author and executive producer Michael Waldron will return to the series while teaming with Marvel Studios and LucasFilm.
