It was announced this morning that Starz’s wrestling drama series, “Heels” has been renewed for season two. Production will begin next year.
The official promotional material for the series notes, “Set in a tightly-knit Georgia community and telling the story of two brothers (played by Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig) chasing their dreams of becoming professional wrestlers and the people in their orbit, Heels is a gripping drama that tells the story of small town America like nothing else. Hear them discuss the making of the show — their intensive training, blurring the line between heroes and villains (or “heels,” as they’re called in the wrestling world), stories from behind the scenes, and more.”
The first season also featured appearances from CM Punk as grizzled Southern wrestling veteran Ricky Rabies.
