‘Heels’ Cancelled

[ Written on September 27 2023 by Admin ]

The bell has officially rung for the Duffy Wrestling League. After just wrapping up its second season on Starz earlier this month, Variety exclusively reported that the hit wrestling drama Heels has been canceled at the network. Following a small-town independent wrestling promotion trying to take it to the next level professionally, the series starred Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig as brothers Jack and Ace Spade. It’s one of four series Starz scrapped today, including Blindspotting, Run the World, and The Venery of Samantha Bird which had yet to air its first season.

UPDATE: EW – The news was particularly painful for Heels’ small but devoted following of viewers, coming as it did just 10 days after the intense season 2 finale. “High Flying” followed Amell’s Jack Spade and his Duffy Wrestling League promotion as they put on a “Harmageddon” show in the hopes of landing a major deal with a streaming platform called Continuum. In the main event, Jack faced off in a match against the Condamned, a character played by his brother, Ace (Alexander Ludwig). He executed a dangerous flying leap into the ring — and ended up catastrophically injured, with no feeling in his legs.

But Jack and the DWL may not be down for the count just yet. Now that the Hollywood writers’ strike has ended, showrunner Mike O’Malley says he and his team are “actively” shopping the show around to other networks. “I really do think it’s going to have a life someplace else,” says O’Malley, who also appears on the show as Charlie Gully, the flamboyant promoter of the rival Florida Wrestling Dystopia league. “We did not intend, nor do we intend, for [the season 2 finale] to be the last episode of the show.”

Meanwhile, Crystal (Kelli Berglund) is itching to defend the DWL championship in the ring, while Charlie Gully (Mike O’Malley) is out for revenge against Jack and the DWL.

‘Heels’ Renewed for Season 2

[ Written on November 03 2021 by Admin ]

Heels, the wrestling drama starring Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig, has been renewed for Season 2 at Starz.

What’s more, the premium cabler announced on Wednesday that Trey Tucker (who plays Bobby Pin) and Robby Ramos (as Diego Cottonmouth) have been promoted from recurring to series-regular status ahead of the series’ 2022 return.

Heels follows Jack Spade (Amell), a family man and wrestler with big dreams to expand the Duffy Wrestling League beyond its small-town roots — which is made even more difficult by rival company Florida Wrestling Dystopia attempting to poach his kid brother Ace (Ludwig).

“It’s clear from the critical and fan acclaim that the stories and characters from the Duffy Wrestling League have made a connection with audiences bringing a community that is not often found to premium TV,” Starz president Jeffrey Hirsch said in a statement. “I’m excited for our amazing cast and executive producers to get back into the ring together for a second season.”

Season 1 ended on Oct. 10 with Jack and Ace exchanging real blows in the ring, and Crystal (Kelli Berglund) becoming the DWL’s first female champion. Series creator Michael Waldron (Loki) previously opened up to TVLine about his hopes for Season 2, including the potential to explore the fallout from that main event match.

“You can argue that some of the best matches and storylines [in wrestling] are happening in the women’s division. There’s that same opportunity for growth and expansion within the DWL, so it’s going to be interesting to see what Jack does with them,” Waldron said. “Kelli Berglund is obviously incredible, and what it would be like to bring in some rivals for her could be a lot of fun.”

Waldron also teased the potential for DWL to succeed if Jack can “cede a little bit of control” and give others like Rooster and Diego the push they’ve been fighting for. “Season 1 is so much about fighting against failure. Looking to the future, it’s interesting to ponder: What are the struggles of success that this team might face together?” he shared.
