It is being reported that Amazon's Prime Video has changed its mind about bringing back A League of Their Own for a shortened final second season. The news comes five months after the streaming service ordered a 4-episode run that was to serve as a conclusion to its story. Reports were that the decision was due to the ongoing writers and actors strikes, but co-creator and star Abbi Jacobson refuted that in an Instagram post.

Adapted from Penny Marshall's classic film of the same name, the show tells new stories of an entire generation of women who dreamed of playing professional baseball in the 1940s. This new ensemble of characters carve their own paths towards the field, both in the league and outside of it.
