“I can’t even, like, process it right now,” head coach Monica Aldama says in an emotional moment during the trailer.

Another star of the show, Gabby Butler is now cheering at Weber State in Utah.

She tells Weber State, “Half the time, on the show, I was either crying or I was hurt or I was, like, just going through a hard time, and people were like, ‘Wow, we have so much more respect for you now that you showed us that side of you.’ I think that’s the best part of it, people got to see how I actually was, versus the social media aspect.”

According to People Magazine, some of the other stars returning this yeasr will be: La’Darius Marshall, Lexi Brumback and Morgan Simianer.

Cheer Season 2 is directed by Greg Whiteley (Last Chance U) and produced by One Potato Productions and Boardwalk Pictures.
