Amazon has renewed “A League of Their Own” for Season 2, which will also be the show’s last. The first season consisted of eight episodes, while the second season will consist of just four. The officially announcement comes about a month after it was reported that “A League of Their Own” would be coming to an end with an abbreviated second season.
Said series creators Will Graham and Abbi Jacobson: “Making this show and seeing the impact it has had in the world has been an incredible joy. While obviously we were hoping for eleven seasons, we’re grateful to be able to continue to tell the story of these characters and this world.”
“A League of Their Own,” based on the classic film of the same name directed by Penny Marshall, stars Jacobson, D’Arcy Carden, Chante Adams, Melanie Field and Kate Berlant. The official description of the show says that it tells “the story of an entire generation of women who dreamed of playing professional baseball. The show takes a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the league and outside of it.”
