Last August, Disney announced that “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” had been renewed for Season 2 at Disney+.
Set in present-day Minnesota, the series takes place after the events of the original films. The Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Lauren Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay, (Emilio Estevez) they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
Graham and Noon will be back for Season 2 along with the leading cast that also includes Maxwell Simkins, Swayam Bhatia, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Taegen Burns, Bella Higginbotham and DJ Watts. It was recently revealed however that Emilio Estevez would not return to reprise his role as Gordon Bombay for the second season.
So what does Season 2 have in store for The Mighty Ducks? The DisInsider recently provided some new character details for the cast which you can see below:
Ryder Cole (SERIES REGULAR): 15-year-old male of white or mixed (half-white) ethnicity. A rebellious stud with a bad-boy attitude. Once a hockey phenom, a recent meltdown from the intense pressure has caused a glitch in his shot and made him hate the game he used to love. He has no interest in being a part of the hard-core hockey institute that his father runs.
Shane Lawrence (RECURRING GUEST STAR): 16-year-old male. “Lawrence” is a god-like teen athlete with a great smile and great hair who is only interested in himself. This superstar player is the socially awkward Koob’s intimidating roommate for the summer.
Marni (RECURRING GUEST STAR): Female, in her 30s-50s. A slightly overwhelmed and unconfident administrative assistant, she’s scared of her boss and wouldn’t dare cross him but doesn’t fit in at a high-intensity hockey institute. She used to run a Nature Center.
Jackie (RECURRING GUEST STAR): Female, in her 30s-40s. The incredibly jacked Strength and Conditioning coach, she’s tough and challenges the kids, but has a sensitive side.
Toby (RECURRING GUEST STAR): Male, in his 30s-40s. The Coach of the “Mind Gym” where the team goes to work on the mental aspects of hockey. Very smart and a bit odd, with a sharp-eyed intensity.
Rufus (RECURRING GUEST STAR): Male, in his 40s-50s. A chipper and energetic Nutrition couch who loves his job and loves teaching kids how to eat healthy (maybe a little too much).
Production on the new season will reportedly begin in February 2022 and is scheduled to wrap in June 2022.
A release date for “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” Season 2 on Disney+ has not been announced yet.
The first season of “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” is available to stream now on Disney+, along with the original three films.
