Winning Time Season 2

The series, based on true events from the Showtime era of the Los Angeles Lakers, production just finished shooting earlier this month. There aren’t too many more clues on the future of Winning Time other than that it’s coming. The bigger teases or guessing about a relase date could come as early as the spring in March.

After a successful first season on HBO, news of the show’s renewal came back in April. The announcement arrived as a shock to no one, as the series received positive reviews from both audiences and critics alike. While it was a slam dunk with viewers, the on-screen telling didn’t quite shoot and score with its subject matter. Following its premiere, both Lakers alumnus Jerry West and Magic Johnson spoke out about how they felt they were depicted inaccurately. The animosity went so far that West asked HBO to backtrack on their representation of him, with Johnson creating his own telling of his life with the upcoming docuseries, They Call Me Magic, which will air on Apple TV+.

The first season of the series was based on the book Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s by Jeff Pearlman. Viewers watched as the basketball team rose through the ranks from zeroes to heroes during the decade that would solidify their names in the annals of hoop-shooting history. Along with the team’s backstory, the series also follows the personal lives of the players, both on and off the court.
