Peyton Manning won’t be taking the ESPN Monday Night Football analyst gig, but the legendary NFL quarterback will still be part of the Worldwide Leader.
ESPN announced today that Manning’s show, Peyton’s Places, has been renewed for a second season.
“Peyton Manning will return to host a second season of the popular and Emmy-nominated football-themed docuseries Peyton’s Places this fall, exclusively on ESPN+.

Peyton’s Places features Manning discussing football with several of the game’s most-important figures, from Tom Brady to Don Shula.
“Peyton is the perfect guide to bring fans close to the places and people that helped make the NFL what it is today. Season one of Peyton’s Places was a fun, fantastic trip through football and we’re excited to bring the second chapter to ESPN+ with Peyton and NFL Films,” ESPN Executive Vice President Connor Schell said.
Manning is a couple of days away from being on everyone’s TV screens.
The former NFL quarterback will compete in “The Match” with Tiger Woods against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. It’ll be televised on TNT at 3 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.
