Is ‘Bumper In Berlin’ Getting a Season 2?

Sadly, the show was cancelled after one season in September 2023. According to sources per Variety, the decision was made to cancel the show amid the ongoing strikes in Hollywood, meaning that production on season 2 was not able to begin as originally scheduled.

“We knew fans of the Pitch Perfect franchise were going to sing the praises of Bumper in Berlin and enjoy seeing a new side of Adam Devine’s character,” Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming,  shared in a statement. “Along with our partners at UTV, Megan Amram, Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman crafted an incredibly unique and charming story with new takes on iconic songs.  We can’t wait to dive further into this new hit with Peacock audiences.”

How Did ‘Bumper In Berlin’ Season 1 End?

The first season came to an end with a performance at Germany’s Unity Day. He’s now fake married so he doesn’t get deported and Sarah Hyland‘s character, Heidi, might just be accepting a job offer in Los Angeles.

Adam, for his part, told TV Line in November 2022 that the finale “set us up for a great ‘What will happen in season 2?’” The actor said he’s interested in doing “a few more seasons, give the people what they want and live in this Pitch Perfect world.”

He added, “It’s a dream come true to be able to do. And to work with Sarah again was pretty unreal.”
