The 5th Quarter premiered last year with an episode that featured NBA star Blake Griffin as an oversized youth-league athlete. In the first episode of season two, Griffin shows up again; this time, he’s a humble race walking champion (yes, it’s a real sport) who goes toe to toe with his nemesis, played by Jimmy O. Yang of Silicon Valley fame.
The second season of The 5th Quarter, from OBB Pictures, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Kids At Play, will run for ten episodes and will feature an impressive roster of guest stars, including Ed Asner, LaVar Ball, and Joel Embiid. A third season has already been confirmed and is expected to premiere in 2018. A trailer that covers both the current and upcoming run of episodes can be found on YouTube:
Three installments from season two of The Fifth Quarter are currently available. Three more will arrive on December 10, with the final four landing on December 17.
