It’s hard to stand out on the box these days…

You often hear that we’re living in the golden age of TV, and indeed, you’d better believe that all genre bases are covered.

Whether you’re into horror, hilarity, or everything in between, there is a seemingly infinite selection of shows for you to choose from, all battling it out for your time and fandom.

One way to remain visible in a crowd of content is to put all of your genres into one basket, more or less. For example, The Big Leap is billed as an American musical comedy-drama, offering audiences a multi-layered series with wide appeal.

It premiered on Fox back in September 2021, but is The Big Leap season 2 confirmed yet?

Is The Big Leap renewed for season 2?

No, neither the network nor the show’s creators have announced that The Big Leap has been renewed for a second season.

Nevertheless, don’t this dishearten all you superfans of the series. There’s reason to be optimistic yet.

The first season was made up of 11 episodes and the finale – ‘We Make Our Own Light’ – concluded its run on Monday, December 6th 2021. Taking this into consideration, it’s perhaps too premature to expect any concrete renewal news just yet.

It’s likely that we’ll hear an announcement sometime in December 2021 or early January 2022, as the aforementioned final episode set things up for a continuation.

For example, the installment revealed that Brittney (played by Anna Grace Barlow) is pregnant and she believes that Reggie (Ser’Darius Blain) is the father. Taking that on board, things are sure to be complicated between Gabby (Simone Recasner) and Brittney with clear potential for conflicts moving forward; that’s just the tip of the iceberg too.

As noted by TVLine, the viewership hasn’t dropped off too much over the course of the season, with episode 1 raking in 1.474 million viewers and the penultimate episode with not too much less at 1.267. This is arguably an encouraging sign.

“We are very hopeful”

Not just that, but creator Liz Heldens has already spoken out publicly regarding her hopes for renewal, while also pointing out that the title has performed well on Hulu:

“We are very hopeful about a season two! The show does well on Hulu, the cast is spectacular, it’s been well received and people who find the show really love it.”

When asked what she hopes audiences take away from season 1 in the event of a cancellation, she added: “I hope the show will continue! But I think what Paula says in her last video to Mike in episode 110 sums it up: ‘Do stuff with people. That’s what life is.’”
