Rise Season 2: Is It Renewed Or Not?
Rise Season 2: Will It Be Back?
Rise is not only one of the most watched TV series on NBC, but was also one of the best dramas in 2017. It has increased its viewership by 27% compared to last season. This well-deserved success has sparked fans’ hope for another round. But will Rise be renewed for Season 2? Let’s find out.
Rise revolves around high school drama teacher – Lou Mazzuchelli (played by Josh Radnor) who used to be a famous theater actor before becoming a teacher. His former glory made it difficult for Mazzu to adjust to his new environment, surrounded by abusive football coach and apathetic faculty members. He regularly gets into embarrassing situations due to his lack of experience in teaching kids with drama. Luckily, he has a group of eccentric students to help him out. He tries to encourage his students and change the school in order to make it better for everyone.
NBC hasn’t announced official news about Rise Season 2 yet, so we can only hope that the viewership numbers will be high enough for the network to renew it soon. Even if Rise is officially renewed for another round, we still don’t know how many episodes it will have or when they will air. In other words, stay tuned with us and keep an eye on this space for more updates! We will write as soon as NBC announces anything new about this TV series.
