The cast also includes Thad, played by Alan Ritchson (“Smallville”), the team’s over-the-top team captain and Sammy, the team’s mascot, played by Romanski (“The Sarah Silverman Program”).

Denise Richards will return for a second season as Coach Daniels sexy, sharp-tongued ex-wife, Debra.

    I’d wish a season 4 would happen…. but more than likely, it will not. I knew that this was the series’ end when Thad finally called Sammy by his name at the end of the final episode.

    Wishful thinking aside… the circumstances that the team found themselves in at the last 3 episodes… pretty much ended their football careers. No one recovers from a scandal like that. It was still a fitting end though.

    I think BMS should go for a fourth year. About a year ago I had no idea that this show even existed until I found it on netflix and watched it. After the first episode I was hooked. Season one may have not brought in alot of viewers, but as the seasons keep coming more and more people are starting to hear about it and watch it. I believe if there was a fourth season the show would hit its climax, probably bringing in twice as many viewers and that is a good reason why spike should air a season 4. I’m sure that the directors can come up with something to do with Thad and the other seniors. Alex has got one more year, his senior year. They should come up with something like BMS winning the national title for real. Maybe Thad could have failed his classes and be elgible to play for another year? He isnt that bright lol.

    Awesome news! I was getting nervous because it kind of just faded away without any news for months. Glad to see it getting another season because it’s an outrageously good time.
