And we’re back in the game.
Netflix dropped the first trailer for the upcoming third season of its sports docuseries “Last Chance U” Tuesday, giving viewers a look at the new rising junior college football program they will be following, the Independence Pirates. And these guys, are uh, well they are a little down on their luck compared to the star players we watched during the show’s first two seasons at East Mississippi Community College.
According to this season’s logline, the quaint town of Independence, Kansas, is the new setting, as the underdog Pirates of Independence Community College have a chance to finally stand tall after more than a decade of losses — or so believes their bigger-than-life head coach, Jason Brown. A sharp-tongued, yet compassionate son of Compton, California, Brown aims to get the Pirates their first conference title in over 30 years, and doesn’t care if he jolts this quiet Midwestern place while he does it.
Season 3 will also include a special episode revisit with Coach Buddy Stephens, former academic advisor Brittany Wagner, and players from the first two installments of “Last Chance U” at EMCC.
“Last Chance U” is a Netflix production in association with Condé Nast Entertainment, Endgame Entertainment and One Potato Productions.
Watch the trailer above.
“Last Chance U” Season 3 launches July 20 on Netflix.
