Cheer Returns For Season 2 And Faces Unprecedented Challenges

Reading now: 601

Netflix hit sports series Cheer would be a massive understatement. It was pre-pandemic and before its breakout star, Jerry Harris, was indicted on child pornography charges and for allegedly exploiting and abusing underage boys (charges which Harris has pleaded not guilty to while he awaits trial).

Today, the Emmy-winning series returns for season two and it’s not going to shy away from any of it — including the accusations that have been levied at Harris. “It felt very much as though I were covering the death of a friend,” director Greg Whiteley told Entertainment Weekly, as season two will address the impact the arrest had on Harris’ teammates and coaches, and the alleged victims. “When something like that comes to light, it just feels as though this person you thought you knew is now dead.

It was just unbelievably sad. And then you add on top of this, getting to know the twins [who accused Harris of abusing them] and how their lives were impacted by these events.
