The Mighty Ducks Renewed For Second Season at Disney+


The ‘Mighty Ducks: Game Changers’ has been renewed for a second season. It appears that the sequel to the the popular 1992 film did well enough for Disney to greenlight further production.  According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR) the show will go into production next year.

The new show was written by Steven Brill, who was the original screenwriter on the films  and features Lauren Graham and the mom who wants to build a team and Emilio Estevez as Gordon Bombay. Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa will be returning as showrunners.  Former executive producers James Griffiths and Michael Spiller will not be returning for a second season. Moving forward George Heller, Brad Petrigala, Jordan Kerner and Lauren Graham will executive produce the second season.

There is no word yet on what a second season story would be or when it will be released, just that it’s happening.

Until then you can watch the first season of ‘The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers’ on Disney+.

Here is the synopsis for the sequel/revival from Wikipedia:

Now a hockey powerhouse, the Mighty Ducks junior team is selective about who makes the cut. After being cut and told he is wasting his time, 12-year-old Evan Morrow, at the urging of his mother, forms a new team of underdogs with the help of original Ducks coach, Gordon Bombay, who has since become the despondent owner of a low level ice rink.
