Netflix announced today that "Last Chance U" is coming back for a third season. The award-winning documentary series will expand the universe of junior college football, heading from the heart of the south to the heartland -- Independence Community College in Kansas.
The series will continue to follow the lives of elite athletes who deal with personal dramas, past mistakes and future goals as they hopefully realize their dreams of competing at the next level. The Independence Pirates are coming off their first winning season in ten years under first year Head Coach Jason Brown.
"While we now have the opportunity to head to Kansas, we hope to revisit the people we've grown to love over the past two seasons of Last Chance U," noted director Greg Whiteley. "We are forever grateful to the talented team at East Mississippi Community College who dedicated months of their lives in Scooba and trusted us to tell their incredible stories."
"Last Chance U" is a Netflix production in association with Condé Nast Entertainment, Endgame Entertainment and One Potato Productions. The series was originally inspired by a feature article in GQ magazine; and is executive produced by Greg Whiteley, Joe LaBracio, Dawn Ostroff, Lucas Smith, James Stern, Ben Cotner, Adam Del Deo and Lisa Nishimura.
