Cheer is back on Netflix for season two this week, exploring the post-fame world of our beloved teens at Navarro College. Following the global success of season one, the series revisits the lives of the Cheer stars, with a deep dive into rival college Trinity Valley and, quite hauntingly, the criminal charges against former treasurer Jerry Harris.
One of the show’s new breakout stars is Maddie Bram, who joins Navarro as a rookie in 2020, only to lose her chance to compete at Daytona because of the pandemic that has canceled sporting events in the summer. She returns for the 2020/21 season as a veteran, one of the team’s best all-round athletes with skills as a flyer, tumbler and dancer.

Massachusetts-born Maddie is the focus of episode three of the show, where we get to learn more about what inspired her to take up cheerleading. As has become typical with the show, details of her upbringing reveal a difficult life for the young star.
,[My father] I didn’t want me to come here because he didn’t get to see me much in my life,’ says Maddie. ‘But at the end of the day, it’s kinda his fault.’ Later explaining that her father spent time in prison, Maddie states that she is no longer allowed to leave the state of Massachusetts. She adds, ‘He has a lot to offer at the end of the day too.’
