The first season of the adult animated series Hoops landed on Netflix in August 2020. The season ended with Ben Hopkins eventually accepting the positing he was offered in Henderson Prep. Now it will be interesting to see where things will head thereafter in Hoops Season 2.
Hoops is an American adult animated comedy-drama series created by Ben Hoffman for Netflix. The series follows the lives and misadventures of foul-mouthed, ill-tempered Basket Ball coach Ben Hopkins, who always feels undermined by his father’s past as an NBA star.
What To Expect From Hoops Season 2?
The first season of the adult animated drama took place in the fictional town of Lenwood, Kentucky. Season one followed the protagonist, Coach Ben Hopkins in his series of hilarious and exhausting misadventures. Ben is a narcissist with a delusory sense of self-importance. Each of his self-improvement efforts results in abject humiliation. This is amplified even more by the folks surrounding him, who actually care about him despite their shockingly typical appearance.
Ben accepts a position at Henderson Prep at the completion of season one of Hoops. He didn’t get the job due to his performance at work. But rather because he persuaded the mother of seven-footer Matty to transfer and play basketball for a more prominent school. Ben declares his choice to leave Lenwood High. Subsequently, he hangs his jacket to remember his legacy, discovering he put his car keys in a jacket pocket. Later, Ben is approached by his teammates, who form a human barricade in the roadway. The coach’s car then breaks down, indicating that his future at Henderson Prep is uncertain.
As Ben broke ties with his family, friends, and students on his way out, this might be one of the highlights of the second season. When the series returns with Hoops Season 2, we expect to see Shannon in a more central role. Ben will most likely not be at Henderson Prep for long. And when he returns to Lenwood, it will be intriguing to see how much, if anything, he has changed.
The Netflix animated comedy series features a stellar voice cast led by Jake Johnson, giving his voice to Ben Hopkins. Meanwhile, other voice cast members include Cleo King as Ben’s boss, Principal Opal, Natasha Leggero as Ben’s wife, Shannon, and Ron Funches lends his voice to Ron. Ben’s gifted student Matty is played by A. D. Miles.
Also, Rob Riggle gives voice to Barry Hopkins’ character. If the series is recommissioned for Hoops Season 2 by Netflix, we can expect most of these main cast members to be back in their respective roles.
When Is Hoops Season 2 Coming?
The first season of Netflix’s animated comedy-drama series dropped on the streaming platform on August 21, 2020. Now, talking about the prospect of Hoops Season 2, even after almost years, Netflix has not made any official announcement about the series getting renewed for a second season. We know that the reviews of the first season of the show were not particularly good, which might be a reason Netflix has not shown any interest till now in renewing the series.
On the contrary, the audience response to the first season was good. Thus, although very slim, there is a chance that the series might come back for another season. However, when or if that happens is not confirmed yet. So let’s be a little more patient and see what the future has in store for the show.
