What will happen in Cheer season two?
Cheer season two began filming in secret in January 2020, pre-pandemic, before Covid-19 unsurprisingly put a strain on the cheerleading calendar. The official synopsis reads:
"‘As season two opens and the buzz around their newfound stardom threatens to alter the dynamic of Navarro Cheer, the team finds no amount of press frenzy could compare to the challenges they must face when Covid-19 upends the 2020 cheer season and a serious criminal accusation is levied at one of their teammates.
"Against that dramatic backdrop, the nine-episode season expands to showcase Navarro’s fiercest rival: Trinity Valley Community College. As with the Navarro team, TVCC has a charismatic coach and breakout stars whose struggles, triumphs and stories extend far beyond the mat.
"As both teams push for the 2021 championship in Daytona, familiar faces take compelling detours and new contenders make a name for themselves."
Will Cheer season two feature Jerry Harris?
In September 2020, Jerry Harris, one of the breakout stars of Netflix cheerleading show, Cheer, was arrested and charged with producing child pornography. A report shared by the United States Department of Justice says that Harris enticed a thirteen-year-old boy to create and share sexually explicit videos and photos of himself. He has denied the claims.
According to Variety, "Cheer deals with the allegations against Harris up front, and in an episode that focuses on the misconduct accusations, the brothers who first came forward about Harris are interviewed."
Cheer director Greg Whiteley added, "The series covers events as they unfolded, beginning in January 2020 through April 2021, so the charges against Jerry Harris are covered in depth in episode five.”
Who will star in Cheer season two?
Navarro coach Monica Aldama and the likes of Lexi Brumback, La’Darius Marshall, Morgan Simianer and Gabi Butler will all feature. Season two also spans to rival cheerleading team Trinity Valley Community College, so expect lots of new faces, too.
