Hoops managed to crack into Netflix's top 10 despite critics giving it an embarassingly low rating.
Netflix finally dropped its adult animated sitcom Hoops two weeks ago, and while it didn't please the critics, the charts seem to tell us there's a good chance we'll see more of dysfunctional coach Ben.
Hoops managed to crack into Netflix's Top 10, which is a huge milestone for shows that wish to get a renewal.
Is 'Hoops' coming for season 2? Here's everything we know so far.
Netflix is yet to renew the animated sitcom for season 2. Albeit, we believe that securing its place in the top 10 gives Hoops a good edge for a renewal.
Hoops has just premiered on Netflix on August 21, 2020, so it's no surprise that they haven't announced plans for the series yet.
Netflix often takes a close look at a show's performance on its first 30 days in the platform to assess whether to renew it or not. Hoops is still on its second week, so it's too early to tell.
Although the show received incredibly low critic ratings, currently with only 15% on Rotten Tomatoes, we all know that what matters to Netflix is viewership.
If the audience watches it and wants it enough, they'll most likely get it.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we could look at season 1's ending for clues.
In season 1, Ben managed to carry his below-average-height basketball team through thick and thin with the help of Matty, a 7-foot tall 16-year-old teen.
Towards the end of season 1, Matty was offered to play basketball in college. Ben pleaded Matty to stay in Lenwood High but failed. Luckily, before everything turns into sad goodbyes, Ben received an offer to coach at the same college Matty was invited too.
However, in a typical string of bad luck that often follows Ben, the two ended getting stranded on the road after his car broke down while driving to college.
Although season 1 ended with Ben and Matty getting stuck, we believe that we will see both Ben and Matty as they try to explore their new opportunities for season 2.
Will they make it to the college team? Or will the road bring them back to Lenwood High?
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we're likely to see major cast members reprise their roles.
The major cast includes Jake Johnson as Coach Ben Hopkins, Ron Funches as Ron, Cleo King as Opal Lowry, Natasha Leggero as Shannon, A. D. Miles as Matty, and Rob Riggle as Barry Hopkins.
Speaking to Inverse, some of the cast have revealed their hopes for their respective roles in Hoops for season 2.
Ron Funches, who plays Lenwood High's assistant basketball coach and is dating Ben's wife, said he just wants 'to sleep with more of Ben's exes. '
Funches also thinks it would be fun for 'Ben and Ron to switch mindsets for a while'.
"I think it would be fun for Ben and Ron to switch mindsets for a while, maybe when Ben gets his shit together, we see Ron get crazy and fall apart, and we see what he's like if he lost his fucking mind, I think that would be fun," Funches said.
Meanwhile, Natasha Leggero, who plays Ben's ex-wife Shannon, agrees with Funches's idea.
"Yeah, I love that, and I think that would be a fun dynamic for Shannon too because there's some part of her that's still in love with Ben. I think if he did get his shit together, she could go there a little bit, but then, of course, it wouldn't end well," Natasha revealed.
On the other hand, Cleo King, who plays Principal Opal Lowry, wants her character to have a boyfriend in season 2.
"I want to see Opal with a boyfriend! She needs a steady guy. Opal is ready for that," Cleo said.
We are still waiting for the show to be officially renewed, hence there's no release date or official trailer yet.
Don't worry because we will keep you updated on the latest developments in the animated series.
