Apple TV+ has renewed Swagger, the drama series inspired by Kevin Durant’s youth basketball experiences, for season 2.
The series is from showrunner and director Reggie Rock Bythewood, who executive produces alongside Durant, Brian Grazer and Rich Kleiman.
“I’m excited to share more of the beautifully complicated lives of these incredible characters,” said Bythewood. “In season two, they will search and discover what it means to be a champion on and off the court, and the basketball playing will continue to be groundbreaking. We are grateful to Apple TV+ for the platform.”
Swagger explores the world of elite youth basketball clubs, the players, their families and coaches and, “the game within the game.” Off the court, the show reveals what it’s like to grow up in America.
The series stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Isaiah Hill, Shinelle Azoroh, Quvenzhané Wallis, Caleel Harris, Tristan Mack Wilds, Tessa Ferrer, James Bingham, Solomon Irama, Ozie Nzeribe and Jason Rivera — all of whom are set to return and reprise their roles in season 2.
It is produced for Apple TV+ by Boardroom, Imagine Television Studios, CBS Studios and Undisputed Cinema, and executive produced by Bythewood, Grazer, Durant and Kleiman. Francie Calfo, Tony Hernandez, Kristen Zolner and Joy Kecken also serve as executive producers.
