The Last Dance, a 10-part documentary series about the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan, is arguably one of the most anticipated television events of 2020. Directed by Jason Hehir and produced by ESPN Films, the series examines the life and career of basketball legend Michael Jordan as he led the Bulls to six NBA championships in the late 90s. With a highly anticipated release date of April 19th, fans have been asking if they can stream it on Netflix.
The answer is no. Unfortunately, The Last Dance will not be available on Netflix.
Instead, ESPN has partnered with Netflix to make all 10 episodes available to stream on their own platform (ESPN+) after initial broadcast on ESPN. The plan is for all 10 episodes to be released at once so viewers can watch them all in one go if they choose to.
Netflix does have a few documentaries about Michael Jordan, including: “Michael Jordan: His Airness” (2009), “Michael Jordan: Come Fly with Me” (1999), and “Michael Jordan: An American Hero” (2000). However, none of them are as comprehensive or up-to-date as The Last Dance. As such, if you want the full story and insight into one of basketball’s greatest players ever, then you will need to look elsewhere.
