Heels: confirmed the second season, the announcement of Stephen Amell


Get ready to be back in the ring! Starz has officially confirmed that Heels, the wrestling series starring Stephen Amell (Arrow) has been renewed for a second season. The well-known actor thought about the announcement with a simple, but eloquent post on Twitter: "I want my belt back".

Heels tells the story of men and women chasing their dreams in the small town professional wrestling world. Set in a tight-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling federation as two brothers and rivals wage war over the legacy of their late father. In the ring, someone has to be a good guy and someone has to play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, these characters can be difficult to manage.

Amell plays Jack Spade, Duffy Wrestling Association wrestler, and as can be seen from the title it is the heel, a technical term used to indicate the "bad guy". Beside him is Alexander Ludwig in the role of his brother Ace Spade. At the moment the launch window of the second season is not yet known.

As told by Stephen Amell exclusively to our microphones (you can read here the complete interview) Heels tries to tell through an introspective lens what happens behind the scenes of the colorful world of Wrestling, often made up of joys and sorrows.

In the background the dreams and hopes of a small town in which all the characters try to do something to make sense of their path. Former WWE Champion CM Punk (Phil Brooks) also appeared in the first season, now fighting in the All Elite Wrestling ring.

‘Heels’ Pins Down Second Season at Starz

Heels is lacing up its wrestling boots again.

Starz has renewed the pro wrestling drama starring Stephen Amell for a second season. The series, which earned strong critical reviews, is set to go back into production in 2022. A premiere date hasn’t been set. The renewal of the Lionsgate Television series comes a few weeks after its first season concluded on the premium cable outlet.

“It’s clear from the critical and fan acclaim that the stories and characters from the Duffy Wrestling League have made a connection with audiences bringing a community that is not often found to premium TV,” said Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch. “I’m excited for our amazing cast and executive producers to get back into the ring together for a second season.”

Heels stars Amell (Arrow) as Jack Spade, the star and lead creative force in a small wrestling promotion in Georgia. Alexander Ludwig plays Jack’s younger brother, Ace, who’s a rival in and ut of the ring as they war over their late father’s legacy.

The cast also includes Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, Kelli Berglund, Allen Maldonado, James Harrison, Roxton Garcia and Chris Bauer. Trey Tucker and Robby Ramos, who recurred in the first season, have been upped to series regulars for season two.

Showrunner Mike O’Malley (Starz’s Survivor’s Remorse), who also has an on-screen part in the show, is set to return in both roles. He executive produces with series creator Michael Waldron, Peter Segal (who directed six of season one’s eight episodes), LBI Entertainment’s Julie Yorn, Christopher Donnelly and Patrick Walmsley.
