In the new four-part follow up for BBC One, Freddie will take some of his team plus a number of newbies on a fresh adventure.
The series will catch up with players such as Sean, Ben and Adnan, and look at how the fortunes of the cricket club have changed.
Speaking to the BBC, Freddie said: “Working with the boys was one of the most incredible experiences of my life but the work is not finished yet! I’m really pleased we’ll be continuing the hard work we have all put in, but on a much bigger scale.”

Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries said: “‘Transformative’ is a word that’s probably overused in relation to TV shows but in his Field of Dreams series, Freddie Flintoff genuinely changed the lives of some of the boys from Preston he drafted on to the cricket team.
“The warmth and authenticity of the series made it a big hit with viewers, and I’m delighted that he is ready to take on the challenge of a second series and can’t wait to see how it unfolds.”
