‘Super Pumped’ Season 2 Will Be About Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook!

When Showtime announced Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber, they called it an anthology series. That means they not only planned for Super Pumped Season 2, but they planned to tackle different tech companies each season. Now, Showtime has revealed what season 2 will be about.

Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber was announced as an anthology series by Showtime. That means they not only planned for Super Pumped Season 2 but also for each season to focus on a different tech company. Showtime has now announced the plot of season 2.

Super Pumped Season 2 was revealed as part of the ViacomCBS investor day announcements on February 15. On February 23, Super Pumped co-creator Brian Koppelman spoke with the Television Critics Association about the second season. Showtime’s Super Pumped airs Sundays at 10 p.m.

Another tech startup revolutionized the way we communicate before Uber. Facebook has already been the subject of critically acclaimed dramas, such as The Social Network since 2010. Super Pumped Season 2 will, on the other hand, spend an entire season on that drama. Perhaps it will continue where The Social Network ended.
“The second season will be based on Isaac’s upcoming book about Facebook and its transition from startup to social media giant,” Variety reported from Investor Day. It will focus on the pivotal interaction between Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg, as well as the world-changing forces released as a result, both intentionally and unwittingly.”

‘Super Pumped’ Season 2 will have a different name

The series will always be known as Super Pumped. They can, however, vary the subject each season. Koppelman hasn’t revealed the title of Super Pumped Season 2, although it’s likely to involve Facebook.

“I promise the subtitle for the second season will not be The Battle for Uber,” Koppelman teased. “I believe that will assist in the clarification of matters.”

That was the plan when Koppelman, David Levien, and Beth Schacter proposed the show to them. They thought Season 2 of Super Pumped might tell a different story.

“When we first approached Showtime with this idea, we said, ‘We want to do an anthology series.’ The first season is titled Super Pumped. In each succeeding second season, we’ll probably merely alter the wording after Super Pumped.”

The same author wrote about Uber and Facebook

However, the second season of Super Pumped will be based on another Mike Isaac novel. The source material for Super Pumped was written by Isaac. He’s now working on a new book about Facebook.

“We believe Mike’s brand with the book was strong,” Koppelman added. “We are enamored with the beautifully created poster.” The logo is fantastic. I believe it will be a question for all of us in a year or two and not one on which we are currently focused.

We’re going to spend the second season working with Mike to discover the wonderful tale that we already know he’s working on from talking to him, and we’re hoping that the materials will, sort of, support that.”

A familiar voice will also narrate the story in Showtime’s thriller Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber. The narrative of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and venture capitalist Bill Gurley is told by Quentin Tarantino (Kyle Chandler). Brian Koppelman and David Levien, the creators and executive producers of Super Pumped, spoke to The Wrap about how they got Tarantino.

Quentin Tarantino is super pumped about ‘Billions’

Billions were also co-created by Koppelman and Levien. They created Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber with their Billions writer and executive producer Beth Schacter. Although Super Pumped is based on Mike Isaac’s book, Tarantino is a huge Billions fan.


“What David [Levien] and I understood was that in the last two years, he had become a really big Billions watcher and fan,” Koppelman told The Wrap. “If you listen to the podcast, you know how important Quentin’s work is to us.” “He keeps a close eye on it and is engrossed in every allusion and character’s path.” That’s why we speculated that he might do it. We knew he appreciated or was interested in our work to some level.”

‘Super Pumped’: Quentin Tarantino gave them an ‘in’

Koppelman invited Tarantino to appear on his podcast, The Moment, in July 2021, while working on Super Pumped. He was aware that the role of the narrator would be open.

“I asked him to do this in the same email that I asked him to do the podcast,” Koppelman explained. “I texted back, ‘You know you said yes to both things?’ and he replied, in great Tarantino style, ‘Yes, I know what I said yes to.'”

So, what makes Tarantino the perfect Super Pumped voice?

“The only response I can give when people ask why Quentin Tarantino is, ‘Because he said yes,'” Koppelman said.

They got the full QT package

Tarantino is well known for his films Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and others. Tarantino, according to Koppelman, took their direction effectively. He has, after all, acted in the films of other directors. Tarantino did, however, wear his director’s hat on occasion.

“We did two sessions the only time Quentin got directing,” Koppelman said, “and the second session he was over in Israel where he spends part of the time.” “So it was over Zoom, and the only directing thing was he said, ‘I don’t enjoy how this camera is with the Zoom,’ and we said, ‘You put it up!'”

Apart from that, Levien claims Tarantino received the package without much urging.

“He was wonderful because he came in like a performer and was completely receptive to our suggestions and wanted us to be delighted with it,” Levien added. “He didn’t bring his directorial authority to it; he was simply saying, ‘Let me just read it out loud, you’ll hear what I do, and then you’ll tell me,’ And, of course, when he read it, he was generally spot on it, and we’d just add our two cents. It was weird and one of the most exciting things we’ve ever done in our careers since he was so eager and game.”
