Encompassing all the hallmarks of a great television drama – adoring spouses, jealous siblings, daring lovers, crooked coworkers, and ambitious goals, Heels has managed to receive loads of appreciation from viewers and critics. Naturally, people are intrigued about the show’s destiny. Will there be a Heels season 2? Let’s find out!
Heels season 2: What’s it about?
‘Heels’ season 1 debuted on Starz on August 15, 2021. The first season consists of eight episodes, lasting between 57 and 62 minutes. The episodes were released weekly until October 10, 2021, when the finale aired.
Heels’ on Starz is a television drama series that captures and combines the world of professional wrestling with the demands of small-town success. Critics lauded the plot, while viewers adored the wrestling frenzy and family responsibility cliches!
Heels season 2 renewal status: Will the show be renewed or not?
As of yet, there’s been no official announcements regarding the show’s renewal yet. “The action-packed show’s premise, on the other hand, is certainly ripe for growth, and the star power of Amell (‘Arrow’) and Ludwig (‘Vikings’) is likely to attract more fans” (via looper.com).
Furthermore, the show’s creative staff, Waldron, is eager to collaborate on a second season. He himself said that negotiations for season 2 are now underway. During an interview, he said:
“Amell and Ludwig invested unbelievable time and effort into their roles, from bodybuilding to performing wrestling feats. This was the most rigorous fitness plan I’ve ever encountered. Essentially, they spent a lot building a great gym for us.”
That said, it is perhaps logical to assume that such long-term preparation and efforts kind of do suggest that the series will be renewed. Surely, Starz will see its enormous potential. Let’s anticipate the release date!
Heels season 2 release date: When will the second season premiere?
Season 2 also seems to be a very plausible possibility based on the opinions of many cast members. “I do not doubt that this program will continue beyond these eight episodes.”
“I believe several stories have the potential to develop significantly and become very compelling,” said Kelli Berglund, who portrays Crystal. “I will answer categorically yes; I would love to return for a second season.”
Therefore, cross your fingers and await a renewal announcement, fam! We’re sure to receive more information shortly. And if the program is renewed, we may expect its launch by the end of 2022.
Heels Season 2 Cast: Who’s going to be in it?
Amell gained prominence as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on the CW’s “Arrow”. While Ludwig has been in films such as “The Hunger Games,” “Bad Boys,” and “Vikings.” That said, Amell and Ludwig are sure to reprise their roles as brothers Jack and Ace Spade in Season 2.
We can also expect most of the cast members to return for the second instalment:
- Alison Luff will reprise her role as Staci Spade,
- Mary McCormack will reprise her role as Willie Day,
- Kelli Berglund will reprise her role as Crystal Tyler,
- Allen Maldonado will reprise his role as Rooster Robbins,

Heels season 2 plot: What to expect?
Season 1 concluded with Crystal becoming the DWL champion. Ace and Jack were shown to be on bad terms with one another. Jack’s marriage to Staci is on the rocks. For season 2, we can expect that the plot would focus on Staci and Jack. There’s also been speculation on whether Ace will end up quitting the DWL championship.
According to Deadline, Mike O’Malley will be back in Season 2 as showrunner and executive producer. He will also be appearing once again as Florida Wrestling Dystopia promoter Charlie Gully.
