The inaugural season of Quarterback offered a comprehensive look into the careers of quarterbacks Marcus Mariota of the Atlanta Falcons, Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings, and Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs. Since Peyton Manning revealed that Quarterback had been renewed for a second season, fans have been curious as to when the season will air.
In its inaugural program created in collaboration with the NFL, Netflix gave viewers a personal, up-close glimpse into the lives of three of the current quarterbacks in the league. Fans followed QBs Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings, and Marcu Mariota of the Atlanta Falcons during the eight-episode 2022 NFL season.
As the series immersed viewers in the lives of these three best players, they were able to witness firsthand the dedication and hard work that goes into playing the most crucial position in the game. Having already established itself as one of Netflix’s most popular sports documentaries, viewers are eager to see what the upcoming second season has in store.
Here is all the information we currently know about Quarterback Season 2, including potential release dates and cast predictions.
Is Season 2 of Quarterback on The Way?
Executive producer and former NFL QB Peyton Manning revealed on The Pat McAfee Show (via Deadline) that production on a second season has already started, despite Netflix having not yet made an official announcement about the show’s renewal.
“Netflix has given the go-ahead for Season 2, which excites us. We hope to see more quarterbacks since it will be simpler to say yes. It will be a distraction, is not something I want to hear because Marcus, the way he handled that, Kirk Cousins, and Patrick Mahomes have all proven otherwise.”
Quarterback Season 2 Release Date
Quarterback season two is probably going to release in the summer of 2024, but it’s not expected to show up on Netflix until then. The three starting quarterbacks were followed during the whole NFL season in the first season of the show, which ran from September until early February. We anticipate that season two will follow the chosen quarterbacks for the duration of the 2023 NFL season, assuming that the production schedule remains unchanged.
Fans may have to wait a year for the second season of the show, as it is filmed throughout the course of the whole NFL season, which won’t end until February 2024.
Assuming nothing else, it appears highly probable that Season 2 will premiere in July 2024, coinciding with the NFL offseason once more. While it’s possible that Netflix may attempt to release the season earlier, we doubt it will happen before May 2024 at the latest.
Quarterback’s July 2024 premiere date was chosen since Season 2 has only recently received Netflix’s green light, and filming for the series will take place during the whole NFL season, which is not anticipated to end until February 2024. As a result, Netflix’s sports documentary featuring Peyton Manning won’t be returning for at least a year. Season 2 might, however, perhaps debut earlier—that is, no earlier than May 2024.
What QBs Could Appear in Quarterback Season 2?
If the quarterbacks chosen are once again starting quarterbacks, Netflix could look to select from 30 different teams for Season 2, which is anticipated to include a fresh batch of quarterbacks.
The list has gotten smaller, though, as certain QBs have started to rule themselves out of contention. In light of this, the following is a list of potential contenders for the starting position in Season 2:
- Aaron Rodgers (New York Jets)
- Kyler Murray (Arizona Cardinals)
- Russell Wilson (Denver Broncos)
- Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills)
- Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers)
- Deshaun Watson (Cleveland Browns)
- Derek Carr (New Orleans Saints)
- Baker Mayfield/Kyle Trask (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
- Ryan Tannehill/Will Levis (Tennessee Titans)
- Jared Goff (Detroit Lions)
- Mac Jones (New England Patriots)
- Kenny Pickett (Pittsburgh Steelers)
- Jordan Love (Green Bay Packers)
- C.J. Stroud (Houston Texans)
- Desmond Ridder (Atlanta Falcons)
- Bryce Young (Carolina Panthers)
- Anthony Richardson/Gardner Minshew (Indianapolis Colts)
- Brock Purdy/Trey Lance (San Francisco 49ers)
When Will Filming for Quarterback Season 2 Begin?
Given that the NFL season in 2023 starts on September 7, it is anticipated that season 2 production will begin in late August or early September.
Netflix likely maintained the same format for season 2 unless it decided to cover the preseason as well. Season 1 followed the featured quarterbacks for the whole season, with the show starting with Week 1 action.
“Quarterback” Season 2, though not officially confirmed by Netflix, has received a green light from executive producer Peyton Manning. Anticipated for a potential summer 2024 release, it’s likely to follow NFL quarterbacks throughout the 2023 season. With a wide pool of talented contenders, the cast for the new season remains a tantalizing mystery.
Filming is expected to commence in September 2023 to coincide with the NFL season’s kickoff. As fans eagerly await the official announcement, they can look forward to another immersive dive into the captivating world of NFL quarterbacks, their challenges, and their triumphs in this highly successful sports docuseries.
