Is Cheer Squad season 2 renewed?
As of now, the series has not been renewed yet. It’s been a few years since the first season aired. Neither have we heard anything about a new season. It’s also not known if the show will return and continue the story of the cheerleading team but it looks like the future seems uncertain.
It seems like the network ABC Spark nor Freeform have any plans to resume the show for another season run. But it simply doesn’t necessarily indicate that the series won’t be greenlit for a new season. All that is left for us to do is to wait for an official update before we go deeper into our own assumptions.
Cheer Squad season 2 release date: When is it?
It is very difficult to foresee when the second of Cheer Squad would arrive if the series is renewed because its air time on the American network has been unusual with each new scene airing on a weeknight on the Freeform network since Cheer Squad premiered on August 22, 2016.
Furthermore, the reason why we haven’t got any update from the showrunners could be chances are that the show might have already ended for good. If you check the Wikipedia page of Cheer Squad, on the release section the original release is mentioned from August 22, 2016, to September 7, 2016. So based on the Wikipedia report, we concluded that the show has indeed wrapped and it’s no wonder why we still haven’t got any announcement concerning the second season of Cheer Squad. It’s such a bummer that an amazing show like the Cheer Squad won’t be continuing however, nothing is confirmed and until we get official news from the showrunners, we can’t be too sure of anything.
But on the off chance, if you’re looking for some competitive shows, there are tons of other reality shows that have recorded the struggles of being an athlete or a cheerleader.
