Heels season two returns on STARZ tonight!

Duffy, Georgia, is gearing up to welcome back the characters of Heels for a second season, a season which arrives a bit later than usual following the end of the first season in 2021.

Starring Stephen Amell as Jack Spade and Alexander Ludwig as Ace Space in the leading roles, Heels is a story about a small, independent wrestling federation called the DWL run by two brothers and sometimes rivals.

Season one ended with a big plot twist. Both Spades wanted the title but in a swerve, it was Crystal Tyler, played by the excellent Kelli Berglund, who climbed the ladder to retrieve the championship.

The second season resumes right after the end of season one, while episode two pretty much kicks off the second season storyline.

One thing you will notice in season two is the effort to make women’s wrestling as important as the men’s. Season one lacked that effort, with only Crystal on the roster, but the second season adds a fan favorite – AJ “Lee” Mendez – who joins the cast as Elle Dorado.

Apart from Amell, Luwdwig, and Berglund, season two also stars Alison Luff (New Amsterdam) as Staci Spade, Mary McCormack (Deep Impact, The L Word) as Willie Day, Allen Maldonado (House Party, The Wonder Years, The Last O.G.) as Rooster Robbins, Chris Bauer (Gaslit, Survivor’s Remorse, and True Blood) as Wild Bill Hancock, Trey Tucker (The Outpost) as Bobby Pin, Robby Ramos (Chicago P.D.) as Diego Cottonmouth, Alice Barrett Mitchell (The Thing About Pam, Billions) as Carol Spade, and Roxton Garcia (Reminensce) as Thomas Spade, David James Elliot (Trumbo, JAG) as Tom Spade, and Joel Murray (Mad Men, Shameless) as Eddie Earl. CM Punk (Mayans, AEW) as Ricky Rabies, AJ Mendez (Women of Wrestling, WWE) as Elle Dorado, Josh Segarra (Scream VI, Arrow, The Other Two) as Brooks Rizzo, and Emmy Raver-Lampman as Jen Lussier.

Heels showrunner and executive producer Mike O’Malley (Survivor’s Remorse, Shameless) also portrays Charlie Gully on the series. Michael Waldron (executive producer of “Loki,” Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and producer for “Rick and Morty”) is the series creator. Christopher Donnelly (By Sidney Lumet), Pete Segal (Get Smart, 50 First Dates, Tommy Boy, Shameless), Patrick Walmsley (JT LeRoy), and Julie Yorn (Hell or High Water, White Boy Rick) also serve as executive producers on the series. “Heels” is produced through O’Malley Ink and LBI Entertainment in association with Lionsgate Television for STARZ.

The second season will feature eight, one-hour episodes and will run through September 15, 2023.
