When you dream of starting your own business, the decision to make the switch is not easy. The uncertainty of leaving a secure job and a comfortable life definitely has its risks. In fact, launching your own venture is a high-stakes gamble. And Discovery’s reality series, ‘I Quit’, approaches this very subject. It follows a bunch of entrepreneurs as they risk it all to embrace their passion. The journey begins after leaving a 9-5 job and saying the words ‘I Quit’.
When the show dropped on Discovery, it was praised by viewers, especially those who hold a dream of launching their own start-ups. Part inspiration and part drama, ‘I Quit’ was praised for its new concept (which does have a little resemblance with the theme of ‘Shark Tank’). But will it be as successful as the ABC superhit? Does it hold the scope to spawn another season? Let’s get started.
I Quit Season 2 Release Date:
‘I Quit’ season 1 premiered on August 18, 2020, on Discovery Channel. It wrapped up with its eighth episode on October 3, 2020. The show’s first season was appreciated by fans of reality dramas, as well as, viewers who are interested in seeing the ups and downs in the lives of entrepreneurs. Since the concept is quite fresh, it is very likely that Discovery will want to experiment with their luck with a follow-up season. And if that happens, we can expect ‘I Quit’ season 2 to release sometime in Summer 2021.
