ESPN and Netflix announced on Tuesday that the 10-part documentary series called "The Last Dance" will run in the us over five consecutive Sunday nights starting April 19 and running through May 17.

The network has bumped up the release date for "The Last Dance" to April 19, the New York Post's Andrew Marchand reported on Monday night.


The 1997-1998 Bulls allowed an NBA Entertainment crew to follow them during the championship season, giving them access to private moments that have never been seen.

I know it may not be the live action we're all craving, but by moving the release ahead, ESPN has saved nearly all of ya quarantined sports fans from losing our collective mind.


Sports fans were delighted with ESPN's decision to move up the movie two months from its original date.

Fans have been wanting this ever since the coronavirus put a stop to live sports a few weeks ago. The late Kobe Bryant, former President Barack Obama, and actress Carmen Electra were also teased in trailers for the film.


The Last Dance was originally set to air in conjunction with the 2020 NBA Finals. "For almost three years, we searched far and wide to present the definitive story of an era-defining dynasty and to present these sports heroes as humans".
