In the American historical sports comedy-drama A League of Their Own, which is set in 1943, the founding of a women’s professional baseball club is the main subject. It is a remake of the same-titled 1992 movie, in which Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, and Madonna appeared. Will Graham, the creator of Mozart In The Jungle, and Abbi Jacobson, the co-founder of Broad City and the series’ star as Carson Shaw, collaborated on the adaptation.
Jacobson, Chanté Adams, D’Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Roberta Colindrez, Kelly McCormack, Priscilla Delgado, Molly Ephraim, and other members of the mostly female cast of A League of Their Own make the movie stand out. There are 8 episodes in all, each lasting an hour. On August 12, the first episode of each season aired, thus it is now time to discuss what is ahead for the show. Was it intended to be a short-lived series, or do the writers have other ideas for stories? Will it have a second season on Amazon Prime Video? Let’s investigate.
Release Date For A League Of Their Own Season 2
A League of Their Own Season 2 has not yet received an official confirmation from Amazon. The show’s co-creator Will Graham has already acknowledged that they have begun scripting the second season, which is fortunate for the fans. The co-creator added that they already know what they’ll do for Season 2 and that they want to start filming in the middle of 2023’s spring.
A League of Their Own Season 2 is expected to premiere no sooner than spring 2024, given that Season 1’s filming began in July 2021 and the season didn’t air until August 2022. Even while Amazon hasn’t announced the show’s renewal yet, we anticipate it will, especially in light of the series’ widespread critical acclaim. The Prime Video series has a 94% average rating on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 69 critic ratings.
Was A League of Their Own Based on a Real Event?
The series and the film it adapts are, in fact, based on a genuine story. Kelly Candaele, who also gets a narrative credit in the original movie, served as the source of inspiration for the picture. It turns out that Helen, Candaele’s mother, and Margaret, her sister, were the first sisters to sign up for the 1943-founded All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (which appears both in the film and the new series.) Penny Marshall, the director of the first movie, was interested when Kelly Candaele created a documentary about the lives of these historical women.
How about the brand-new season? Although the characters in the new series are likewise loosely based on real women, this is not always the case. Instead, they are based on actual women, occasionally a combination of various individuals. For instance, Max Chapman, played by Chanté Adams, is based on Connie Morgan, Toni Stone, and Mamie Johnson, three real-life Black female players from the Negro Leagues. The same is true for the portrayal of LGBTQ+ characters, who are based on LGBTQ+ women who lived during that time period rather than being direct representations of real women.
In What Location Was a League of Their Own Shot in 2022?
From July to October 2021, the show was shot in various cities. The show’s first episode was filmed in Los Angeles, although most of the subsequent episodes were primarily shot in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The former Schwartz Market, Ambridge, Aliquippa, Amtrak Train Station, Boyce Park, and Fifth Street Park were some of the locales used for the series’ filming.
