Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Disney+ has renewed basketball comedy-drama Big Shot starring John Stamos for a second season.

Stamos stars in the series as Coach Korn who becomes a girls basketball coach at an elite private high school after he is ousted from the NCAA.

Season 1 premiered on Disney+ in April and ran for 10 episodes.

Co-stars include Jessalyn Gilsig as Korn's assistant coach Holly Barrett and Yvette Nicole Brown as the school's dean Sherilyn Thomas.

David E. Kelly, Dean Lorey and Brad Garrett created the series. Lorey will return as showrunner for Season 2, which will begin production in 2022.

Stamos announced the second season on Twitter Thursday. The actor said a second season would be made after he made a shot on the basketball court, but he eventually gave up.

"This show represents everything Disney is to me -- family, inclusion and unity. But at its core, @BigShotSeries is about guts and heart, and that is what Disney+ demonstrated by giving us a second season," Stamos said in a statement.

"I am sending lots of love to the critics and fans that got up on their feet and cheered for us from the sidelines. I'm so grateful to continue to play Coach Korn, a man who learns to let go of pre-conceived judgments and learns from an incredible group of women, helping him to evolve and grow. And yet, he still has so much more to learn...thankfully he'll get that chance in Season 2," he continued.
