Apple TV+ Renews Sports Drama Swagger for Season 2

By Jessica Lerner 

Sports drama Swagger is coming back for a second season on Apple TV+.

The series is inspired by NBA superstar Kevin Durant’s experiences in the world of youth basketball and hails from creator, showrunner and director Reggie Rock Bythewood, who also serves as executive producer alongside Durant, Brian Grazer and Rich Kleiman.

“I’m excited to share more of the beautifully complicated lives of these incredible characters,” Bythewood said in a statement. “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.” O’Shea Jackson Jr., Isaiah Hill, Shinelle Azoroh, Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis, Caleel Harris, Tristan Mack Wilds, Tessa Ferrer, James Bingham, Solomon Irama, Ozie Nzeribe and Jason Rivera are all set to return and reprise their roles for the second season.

The complete first season of Swagger is currently streaming globally on Apple TV+.
