No Season 2 for the mid-season comedy.
June 29, 2018
It looks like Champions won't be back. It is being reported this afternoon that NBC has cancelled the mid-season comedy after its freshman outing. The move isn't surprising, as the half-hour show was not a particularly strong performer for the network.
The Mindy Kaling-produced series premiered in March but failed to find much of an audience during the course of its 10-episode run. While ratings for its first two weeks showed promise, viewership dipped for its third episode and failed to recover for the rest of the season.
Champions followed a washed-up high school athlete who reluctantly takes over his family's Brooklyn gym rather than pursue his own dreams. Just as he is thinking of selling the gym and moving to Florida, an ex from his high school days surprises him by dropping off their teenage son on his doorstep.

Mindy Kaling to me just isn't funny. I don't see her appeal and nothing I've seen her do on her own is funny at all.

Tried it out. The kid was painfully stereotypical and annoying. Was hard to watch

My kids and I loved this show!! It’s was funny and cute for kids not for it’s time slot. Should have been at 8pm and not later. It definitely appealed to a much younger audience. Sad it won’t be back.

Never heard of this show. The only NBC show I watch are America's Got Talent and Willl & Grace. NBC stands for Not Best Channel.

It is hard for new shows to get a chance. But I agree , this was NOT a funny show.

A painfully unfunny show. Every person involved has done much better work on other projects.

Happy watching this on Netflix and enjoying it, but I can see why it was cancelled
