The documentary series Cheer will return for a second season on Netflix this year.
The first season followed the high-stakes journey of the cheerleaders at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, USA, towards the National Championships.
The previous six-episode series also followed the students’ personal stories, as well as showing the reality of what it is like to be part of a team that has previously won the competition 14-times, taking us all the way up to the exciting final.
The show was nominated for six Emmys and won three, including “Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program.”
The next series is expected to pick up where the last series left off and show us the next chapter for Navarro Cheer.
When is the Cheer season 2 release date?
Season 2 of Cheer will hit Netflix at 8am on January 12, 2022.
What to expect from Cheer season 2
The Netflix official synopsis tells us, “The Emmy-winning breakout sensation is back and the stakes have never been higher.”
“As Season 2 opens and the buzz around their newfound stardom threatens to alter the dynamic of Navarro Cheer, the team finds no amount of press frenzy could compare to the challenges they must face when COVID-19 upends the 2020 cheer season and a serious criminal accusation is levied at one of their teammates”.
“Against that dramatic backdrop, the 9-episode season expands to showcase Navarro’s fiercest rival: Trinity Valley Community College.”
“As with the Navarro team, TVCC has a charismatic coach and breakout stars whose struggles, triumphs and stories extend far beyond the mat.
“As both teams push for the 2021 championship in Daytona, familiar faces take compelling detours and new contenders make a name for themselves.”
