It’s showtime again.
The HBO Original series Winning Time: The Rise Of The Lakers Dynasty has been renewed for a second season.
The HBO comedy-drama, created by Max Borenstein and Jim Hecht is based on the book ‘Showtime:Magic, Kareem, Riley And The Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty Of The 1980s‘ by Jeff Pearlman, and chronicles the the professional personal lives of the 1980s basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers, namely the owner Jerry Buss, played by John C. Reilly, and Magic Johnson, played by newcomer Quincy Isaiah. The show is also executive produced by Academy-Award winner Adam McKay.
Series co-creator said that he was hopeful that he would be able to continue to tell this story, stating on The Hollywood Reporter, “The idea of carrying forward a saga about this dynasty that is the kings of the city, being able to tell that story of the city and that era and moving into another era would be incredible. I hope we have the opportunity to keep doing it.”
There isn’t a release date for the second season. The first season is currently airing on HBO, the first five episodes already available to stream.
