Killing It Season 1 Recap
In the premiere, Craig tries to follow the American dream by applying for a loan to launch a small business, but he is turned down. His world is turned upside down when he meets Australian taxi driver Jillian and learns about the South Florida Snake Challenge. Craig and Jillian team up with Brock later in the tournament to try to steal the prize from one of the other contestants.
But that’s only the beginning of Craig’s twisted and bizarre experiences. A number of sketchy people enter his life, including Jillian, the Australian Uber driver. He ends up in a jam. And poor old Craig can never seem to focus on one thing without another. In other words, “Killing It” refers to the process of producing money.
He paired up with Jillian to defeat Brock. In the season finale, however, the South Florida Snake Challenge is called off as a hurricane approaches the coast. Craig contemplates each and every one of his actions. He’s had quite the ordeal. He even shot himself in the hand with a nail gun. Aw, poor Craig. In his second season, what can we expect from him?

Killing It Season 2 Plot
The first season opens with Craig pursuing the American dream by applying for and being denied a loan to launch a new business. When he meets Jillian, an Australian Uber driver, he is thrown for a loop when she introduces him to the South Florida Python Challenge. As the competition progresses, Craig and Jillian join forces with Brock to prevent an opponent from taking first place. But that’s just the beginning of Craig’s twisted and strange adventures. In the season’s last episode, a hurricane is on the horizon as the South Florida Python Challenge nears its conclusion. Craig also thinks about the choices he has made.
A prospective second season would pick up directly after the events of the first. The future of Craig and his chances of realizing the American dream may be revealed. It’s also possible that the group’s amazing experiences, as well as insights into Jillian and Isaiah’s life, will be explored in depth.
Killing It Season 2 Release Date
Despite being renewed for a second season on June 25, 2022, Peacock has not yet announced when Season 2 of Killing It would premiere. On the plus side, production is likely to start later this year, according to many sources. Since the network made the renewal announcement on time, the fans may rest confident that the next season will be published on schedule or even sooner than expected.
We estimate that the release date will be sometime in the first half of 2023. If the pattern from the previous season is any indication, the series’ rollout will likely begin in 2023. We’d also like to stress the fact that at this point everything is conjecture. Fans should watch the Peacock website in the coming months for the publication and confirmation of the official release dates.
Killing It Season 2 Episodes
Season 2 of Killing It is planned to have at least 10 episodes, with each episode clocking in at an expected 28–32 minutes in length. However, the episode titles for the upcoming season are still up in the air.
Where is Killing It Filmed?
The Greater New Orleans area serves as the primary filming location. Some parts were filmed in a studio, but the rest were shot on location in the infamous swamps of New Orleans. Craig Robinson, a comedian, and actor, met with tragedy when the crew managed to tame an alligator in the swamp where they were filming. However, the Burmese Pythons, the show’s main attraction, did not cause any mayhem.
The American Humane Society provided on-set support when live snakes were used in the production. The crew also utilized fake snakes, with additional scaly creatures added in post-production with CGI. Tax credits of up to 40% of qualifying expenses are provided by the state of Louisiana to encourage qualified performances. The state has established itself as a major player in global production thanks to its rich natural resources, rich history, and generous tax incentives.
Where can I watch Killing It Season 2?
As an original series being produced solely for the Peacock digital streaming service, both seasons of Killing It will be available there once they have been completed. Viewers can renew their accounts and continue watching the series based on their location and the subscription package they select.
