The Netflix hit series Last Chance U will be moving away from the gridiron. Netflix announced that the series will shift from football to basketball following the fifth season which debuts on July 28. The series previously followed East Mississippi Community College, Independence Community College for seasons 1 through 4, with Laney College in Oakland, California earning the final honor.
Last Chance U: Basketball will debut next summer.
“We’re thrilled to be able to delve into the world of Laney College for our fifth season and to have had the opportunity to document the incredible grit and drive of these JUCO players in Oakland,” said executive producer and director Greg Whiteley (Cheer).
“With this series, we always wanted to give viewers a raw behind-the-scenes look at junior college athletics and we’re excited to expand the LCU legacy onto the court with JUCO basketball.”
The first season of Last Chance U: Basketball will chronicle the 2019-20 season at East Los Angeles College.
