From Cradle To Stage Season 2 - What We Know So Far

The mythic image of a rock star suggests that they're larger than life — people who live and breathe rock and roll. That's certainly true for some, or at least they want it to seem that way. Plenty of others, though, are willing to embrace their human sides and explain more about how their family lives influenced the people they ultimately became. 

Dave Grohl and his mother Virginia embraced the latter kind of rock star when she published "From Cradle to Stage," a book about their relationship and how it ultimately influenced the musician that Dave would eventually become. Virginia also interviewed the mothers of other rock stars for the book, asking questions that don't often come up in interviews with rock stars. After the book was released, Dave and his mother adapted it into an unscripted series with the same approach, interviewing the mothers of famous rock stars about the early years of their lives. Now, fans want to know when the series will return for a second season. 

What's the release date for the second season of From Cradle to Stage?

"From Cradle to Stage" has not yet been renewed for a second season, but the first season just debuted on Paramount Plus in May of 2021. The series may still be renewed for another season, although that's far from a sure thing. It's possible that the six episodes of the show that are already available will be the only episodes that are ever available. 

If the show were renewed for a second season, it may only take a few months to pull together. The show's first season was first announced in February of 2021, and it was available on Paramount Plus just a few months later. Dave Grohl was directing the first season of the show, and he's usually pretty busy being a rock star. In fact, Grohl will be touring pretty consistently with The Foo Fighters through November of this year. He has a break after that when a second season of the show could potentially be filmed and released. If it started filming in December, the new season could be ready by the middle of 2022. Again, though, nothing regarding a second season has actually been announced.

Who will the rock stars in season 2 of From Cradle to Stage be?

Since season 2 for From "Cradle to Stage" has not yet been formally announced, the rock stars who would be featured haven't been either. In the show's first season, though, it tackled a pretty diverse range of artists who were all willing to highlight the impact their mothers had on their careers. The first season featured Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, Pharrell, Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlisle, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, and Geddy Lee of Rush. 

The caliber of these artists suggests that Grohl's clout is worth a lot in the music world. If the show were to continue in the same vein, it's possible that a second season could feature more big acts who have positive relationships with their mothers. Artists like Taylor Swift, Gene Simmons, John Legend, and Bruno Mars are all known for being close with their mothers, and all of them would make great guests in a second season, although some of their mothers are no longer alive. Of course, the nature of the show means that any artist who resents their mother or is not on speaking terms with them is probably going to be far less willing to sit for an interview. 

What will the stories in season 2 of From Cradle to Stage be?

Although every episode of the first season of "From Cradle to Stage" had different specifics, each one of them was about the way that a musicians' mother reckons with their child's passion for music. Music is not a career that everyone can succeed in, but "From Cradle to Stage" suggests that many of the musicians featured in the series were helped along by the faith that their mothers showed in them. 

Every mother is different, but the show is also about the way that a mother's love informs the musician that their child ultimately becomes. 

"Having the opportunity to travel the country and tell the stories of these amazing women behind the curtain not only shed some light on the music that they inspired, but also made me appreciate the love that I was given from my own mother, my best friend," Grohl said in describing the series. "It goes without saying that we are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music."
