The Last Dance is a 2020
American sports documentary miniseries focusing on the 1997–98 Chicago Bulls. The series features film from a crew that had an all-access pass to the Bulls during the National Basketball Association season.
If you have yet to watch the first two episodes of The Last Dance, don’t worry. There’s still plenty of time to catch up (Episodes 1 and 2 are available to stream on the ESPN website) before the next two episodes debut later tonight (April 26) on ESPN. Premiering last week, Jason Hehir’s wildly entertaining 10-part docuseries chronicles the untold story of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls dynasty, concentrating on the final season (1997-98) in which the Bulls topped off their historic run with a second three-peat in eight years. Featuring never-before-seen footage and detailed interviews with almost all of the key players involved (Jordan, Pippen, Rodman, Jackson, Kerr, Kukoč), the docuseries delivers a riveting exploration of a truly iconic team.
With the NBA season suspended amid coronavirus concerns around the world, plenty of basketball fans were asking, or rather begging, ESPN to release “The Last Dance,” a documentary series covering Michael Jordan’s final season with the Bulls.
The documentary features never-before-seen footage from Chicago’s 1997-98 championship campaign, including interviews with Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Phil Jackson and other key members of the Bulls’ dynasty. It is also spread out over 10 parts, which is hardly a problem considering it could be months before NBA teams return to action.
