The Last Dance documentary has been a huge success. The story of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls has captivated the nation during the coronavirus pandemic and the Worldwide Leader in Sports is going to capitalize on the numbers.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, on Tuesday, May 19, following the conclusion of the docuseries, ESPN and ABC will be teaming up for an hourlong special titled After the Dance With Stephen A. Smith: A SportsCenter Special.
Stephen A. Smith will be joined by NBA legend Magic Johnson.
Throughout the airing of the series, The Last Dance has been averaging a whopping 5 million viewers per episode.
The docuseries was initially scheduled to premiere this summer, but due to a lack of sports during the coronavirus pandemic, the Worldwide Leader decided to bump up its premiere date for fans in desperate need of fresh content.
“As society navigates this time without live sports, viewers are still looking to the sports world to escape and enjoy a collective experience. We’ve heard the calls from fans asking us to move up the release date for this series, and we’re happy to announce that we’ve been able to accelerate the production schedule to do just that,” a statement from ESPN read.
“This project celebrates one of the greatest players and dynasties ever, and we hope it can serve as a unifying entertainment experience to fill the role that sports often play in our lives, telling a story that will captivate everyone, not just sports fans.”
The Last Dance will come to an end on Sunday, May 17 with Episodes 9 and 10.
