THE LAST DANCE IS HERE! Episode 1 and 2 are now streaming!
NBA great Michael Jordan won a total of six titles during his career. The Last Dance is thus based on the sixth and the final title that Jordan won with the Chicago Bulls. It is directed by Jason Hehir, who is considered to have a deeper understanding of the NBA of the 90s era.
The Last Dance is a combination of the present-day interviews with new archival footage dating back to the 1997-98 season. Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf, head coach Phil Jackson and Jordan agreed to the idea of letting an NBA Entertainment crew film the season.
The documentary was originally scheduled to be released in June, around the same time when the NBA finals take place. However, since the NBA has been under suspension for more than a month due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, its release was preponed. Its two episodes will be aired every Sunday until May 17.
For American viewers, the Last Dance episodes shall be broadcasted on ESPN, while global viewers will be able to watch it on Netflix. It will, however, not be available on ESPN's other platforms such as ESPN plus or Disney plus streaming platforms. Meanwhile, its edited version will be aired on ESPN2 at the same time. The Last dance episode 5 and 6 live will be streamed on Sunday, May 3 at 9 PM (PT) or Monday, May 4, 7 AM IST for India.
