Netflix users received all 10 episodes of The Crew in February 2021. The Crew is the latest in a long line of multi-cam sitcoms starring Kevin James, including The King of Queens and Kevin Can Wait. Kevin James plays the crew chief for Bobby Spencer Racing, a NASCAR garage, in The Crew. The story begins when Bobby Spencer, the garage’s namesake, retires and his daughter Catherine takes over the firm.
Catherine’s age and business training are the series’ main sources of tension. Catherine, as a youthful and ambitious new owner, aims to revitalize the garage. Meanwhile, Kevin James and the rest of the team are set in their ways. As a result, Catherine’s vision for the garage is frequently interpreted as a threat to their laid-back work environment.
The Crew has received mostly negative reviews, with critics criticizing the comedy as antiquated or unimaginative. The Crew, on the other hand, was never going to be a critical favorite. Prior to its demise, Kevin Can Wait had a similar critical reception.
Here’s what we know so far about a second season of The Crew, in anticipation of the show’s continuance.
When will the second season of The Crew be released?
The Crew was only recently released on Netflix, and the streaming provider has yet to clarify whether or not it will return for a second season. Despite the lack of concrete evidence to the contrary, there are several compelling reasons to believe that The Crew will return for a second season at some time in the future.
Kevin James, in particular, is as good a reason as any for The Crew to continue. While Kevin James-led shows have a history of not being well received by critics, he is still a star with a sizable fan base. His star power among a certain demographic is so strong that during The King of Queens’ final season, he was paid $400,000 each episode. While Kevin James may not be pleasant to work with, his financial success frequently transcends such concerns when it comes to having a job completed.
Furthermore, Netflix has a history of continuing series for at least a second season, even if they are eventually canceled. The Crew season 2 may be released sooner rather than later, given that the production of a multi-cam sitcom that mostly takes place in the same auto garage site is unlikely to be prohibitively expensive.
All About The Crew season 2
Because The Crew is a sitcom aimed at a broad audience, the plot is relatively light. However, a couple of important story twists throughout the first season hint at certain potential possibilities in a second season.
Catherine’s desire to succeed Jake, the resident driver at Bobby Spencer Racing, is a recurring plotline in The Crew. Jake isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but he’s a valuable member of the titular crew. How he succeeds (or fails) to keep his job in the face of Catherine’s financial acumen and his own self-sabotage will almost certainly be a story point in the second season of the show.
A kiss between Jake and Catherine near the end of season 1 might further shakeup that plot element. Given that Catherine is an opponent to the easy-going central group, their romance is likely to disrupt Jake’s efforts to keep his job as well as the office climate in general. A crew member’s romance with their sort-of-enemy will inevitably culminate in a slew of classic sitcom scenarios.
Who will make up The Crew season 2’s cast?
It’s impossible to determine who will return to the series in its second season without official confirmation of a second season. However, the series’ stars are practically all intact by the end of Season 1, indicating that the show’s core will most likely return.
Catherine is played by Jillian Mueller, who co-stars with James. Her previous TV appearances include tiny roles in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and The Last O.G., but her performance in The Crew is her most memorable. Freddie Stroma, a British actor who has acted in a number of British projects like The Inbetweeners 2 and the Harry Potter film franchise, plays Jake (as Cormac McLaggen).
Gary Anthony Williams, Dan Ahdootm, and Sarah Stiles round out the core cast. Williams is a veteran comedy actor who has appeared in films such as Harold & Kumar. Play roles in White Castle and The Boondocks, among others. Ahdoot is a stand-up comedian who has acted in Cobra Kai and Bajillion Dollar Propertie$, among other films. Stiles has also appeared in a number of TV shows, including getting Shorty and Billions.
