Get Ready, Sports Fans: Netflix Just Announced Season 2 of Last Chance U

The gritty documentary series that goes behind the scenes of college football will be back for another season.

What's this show about? During the first season of Last Chance U, Netflix explored the 2015 football season of East Mississippi Community College, proving that for most students, football was way more than a sport. It looks as if the second season will follow the same college, introducing us to more athletes who aspire to take their skills to the next level.

Why East Mississippi Community College? Interesting question. This college actually has one of the strongest football coaches around inBuddy Stephens: not only has he brought many of his teams to win championship titles, but more than twenty students on average per year gain football scholarships to four-year colleges after working with him. He's worked with nine current NFL players, so he definitely knows his sport.

When will Season 2 be released? A specific date has yet to be set, but an interview with Stephens at Yahoo! Sports says that viewers should expect the new season to premiere in the summer of 2017. In the meantime, you can catch up on Season 1 on Netflix.
