Netflix’s ‘Full Swing’ docuseries has been renewed for season 2

Full Swing returns for Season 2.


Golf’s run on the small screen continues for another year.

On Tuesday, Netflix announced it was renewing the “Full Swing” docuseries for a second season, tying production on the highly popular show for the remainder of the 2024 season.

“‘Full Swing’ debuted to Netflix’s 230 million subscribers the week of the Genesis Invitational and has consistently ranked in the Netflix top 10 worldwide,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said at a press conference at the Players Championship Tuesday announcing the news. announced. “As a result of such a strong out-of-the-gate performance, Netflix announced earlier this morning that they are officially greenlighting season two.”

The decision marks a remarkable, but unsurprising, development for the series, which has taken most of the 2023 Tour season into season two. The show’s first season, which debuted on the streaming service just weeks ago, has received mostly positive reviews for its portrayals of some of golf’s greatest (and quirkiest) characters, including Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, and Joel. Dahmen.

“Full Swing” has also received high marks for its entry, which includes a behind-the-scenes look at life at each of golf’s four majors, including the Masters. While Netflix is ​​expected to keep access to the biggest golf events, it remains to be seen if Season 2 will follow the same narrative structure, which focused more on players’ individual arcs than the golf season’s chronological developments.

Netflix reports streaming data itself, which means we don’t know much about the new show’s viewership. Still, the buzz surrounding the show’s first few weeks (which included a Super Bowl ad) and the fact that Netflix would put significant resources into the show’s production would seem to indicate that Netflix executives are seeing a positive trendline. (Last month, a ratings report showed the company’s “Point Break” tennis sibling got off to a disappointing start, even though Netflix picked that show for a second season on Tuesday, too.)

“A focus for our organization is delivering the PGA Tour to fans where they are and welcoming our sport through innovation and strategic partnerships,” said Monahan. “I think the commitment we made to Netflix at the time, some of the real innovation we’ve had around concepts like TGL, all of that starts to manifest at that point.”

It’s early to know when the new season will debut, but Netflix’s announcement teased a timeline for “Spring 2024” release. Viewers can stream the first season of “Full Swing” here. And check out all our episode reviews here.
