Looks like season 2 is a go for The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers over at Disney+!
Disney+ kicked off the week by serving up some fantastic news for Ducks fans far and wide.
On Monday (August 2), the streamer took to Twitter to announce that The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers has officially been renewed for season 2.
Disney+ paired the exciting news with a short highlights reel that ended with a title card announcing that the second season would be debuting sometime next year.

Set nearly three decades after the original movie debuted, Game Changers stars Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) and original franchise star Emilio Esteves, who returns to reprise his unforgettable role as the legendary Coach Gordon Bombay.
Minnesota once again serves as the backdrop for the next chapter in the Ducks saga. This time around, it’s the Ducks who’ve turned into Hawks, evolving from the scrappy underdog team we first met, into an ultra-competitive powerhouse youth hockey team.
When 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) gets cut from the team, he and his mom Alex (Graham) set out to build their own team of misfits. They’re not going at it alone though. As the trailer shows, it’s not long before they recruit the help of none other than Coach Bombay himself.
Word of the season 2 renewal comes just a couple of months following the season 1 finale, which debuted back on May 28. While the first season ended on a high note for the Don’t Bothers, we’re sure fans will be happy to know that their favorite lovable underdogs will soon be hitting the ice once again.
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers season 2 debuts via Disney+ sometime in 2022.
