A new trailer has been released for Season 2 of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. After the series was renewed for a second season, it was reported shortly after that original star Emilio Estevez would not be returning for season 2. Losing a main star meant a gap needed to be filled for the new season, which was the sign. for Josh Duhamel to step in as a replacement. As seen in the new trailer, which you can watch below, Duhamel plays a coach who will try to lead his junior hockey team to victory, despite the challenges.
The official synopsis for season 2 of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers It is as follows:
After reclaiming the Mighty Ducks team name last year, our heartfelt squad and their coach Alex Morrow (Lauren Graham) hit the road for an intense California summer hockey institute run by the charming but stalwart former player. of the NHL, Colin Cole. (Josh Duhamel). It’s a place for kids to excel at hockey, without school getting in the way. As our Ducks try to survive in this super-competitive environment, they are faced with the question: Can you win the summer?
Along with Duhamel, the series also stars Lauren Graham, Brady Noon, Maxwell Simkins, Swayam Bhatia, Julee Cerda, Luke Islam, Bella Higginbotham, Taegen Burns, Kiefer O’Reilly, and De’Jon Watts. Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith return as showrunners for season 2 and as executive producers alongside Graham, Steve Brill, George Heller, Brad Petrigala, Jordan Kerner and Jon Avnet.
Will season 2 suffer without Emilio Estévez?
It’s never exactly a good thing every time a main star walks out of a TV series. Although there are exceptions to the rule, such as The Conners becoming a successful sitcom after killing off Roseanne Barr’s character, it seems that losing main characters often takes its toll on a TV show’s viewership. Sometimes it can be hard for viewers to get motivated to watch a new season if they can’t shake the disappointment of losing a major character. Time will tell how season 2 fare when the new episodes premiere in September.
One thing that might get people to tune back in would be bringing in more originals from the 1990s movie series. The first season brought in several former child stars, who are now playing the adult versions of their characters. However, there were still some key favorites that weren’t included, such as Shaun Weiss, Joshua Jackson and Kenan Thompson. It’s possible that some or all of these stars will appear in season 2 and that Disney has been saving this for a surprise.
The first season of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers is streaming on Disney+. Season 2 will arrive on the streaming platform on Wednesday, September 28, 2022.
