Gabi Butler may have just gotten a promotion. Viewers of Netflix’s “Cheer” know the cheerleader for her impressive stunts, but according to an enigmatic Instagram post shared on March 27, it appears Butler is now an assistant coach for Navarro College. “Taking on daytona with a slightly different role this time,” Butler wrote with a photo of herself posing next to head coach Monica Aldama in nearly identical outfits. “Let’s Gooooo!” Aldama posted on her Instagram Story with Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)” playing in the background.
“Cheer” hasn’t officially been renewed for a third season, but prior seasons of the docuseries were big hits on the streamer. Each season followed Navarro College’s tumultuous road to the Collegiate National Championship in Daytona, FL, allowing viewers to connect with Butler and other members of the squad. In the second season, which began filming in 2020, the team’s hard work was cut short due to the pandemic. They were later able to compete in 2021, although they lost to Trinity Valley.
“I feel like I want that one last time with that program,” Butler previously told POPSUGAR before returning to Navarro to compete again prior to season two. “There’s really nothing like that program, it’s completely life-changing.” Now, she might be back again to keep the legacy alive alongside Aldama.
