‘Heels’ Season 2 Trailer Sees Jack Grappling with Loss and an Appearance From AJ Mendez

3 Min Read

Jack and Ace are back for season 2 of the STARZ hit series Heels and the trailer teases continuous turmoil between the two brothers.

Jack is dealing with the fallout of his wife Staci and his brother leaving him — the latter caused by the blowout fight at the end of season 1. Crystal, meanwhile, is itching to defend the belt while still carrying the weight of the DWL on her back: “I’m the baddest the DWL has ever seen,” she says. Former professional wrestler AJ Mendez also appears in the trailer as Elle Dorado, a debuting character in season 2. Mendez’s Dorado performs a twisting wristlock on Crystal before taking a crossbody. (You still got it, AJ!)

“Season 2 begins after a spectacular showing at the South Georgia State Fair, the Duffy Wrestling League’s popularity is suddenly on the upswing. Hoping to seize the opportunity, Jack and his cohorts prepare for a possible business deal with a new streaming service that may propel them onto a national stage,” the synopsis for season 2 reads. “But the past and its tragedies threaten to upset everything when Ace leaves Duffy and the Dome in his rearview, and rival promotion Florida Wrestling Dystopia’s vengeful frontman Gully (Heels showrunner and executive producer Mike O’Malley) comes calling.”

This season will see the debut of a few new characters, including Josh Segarra as Brooks Rizzo, and Emmy Raver-Lampman as Jen Lussier. Returning cast members include Kelli Berglund as Crystal Tyler, Mary Mccormick as Willie Day, Chris Bauer as Wild Bill, CM Punk/Phil Brooks as Ricky Rabies, Robby Ramos as Diego Cottonmouth, Allen Maldonado as Rooster Robbins, and Trey Tucker’s Bobby Pin, among others. 

Michael Waldron is the show creator with Christopher Donnelly (By Sidney Lumet), Pete Segal (Get Smart, 50 First Dates, Tommy Boy), Patrick Walmsley (JT LeRoy), and Julie Yorn (Hell or High WaterWhite Boy Rick) serving as executive producers on the series. Heels is produced through O’Malley Ink and LBI Entertainment in association with Lionsgate Television for STARZ. 

Season 2 of Heels premieres July 28 at 10 p.m. ET via linear tv on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada and midnight (ET) on the STARZ app.
