Last Chance U is heading to Laney College for season 5 and we finally have a look at the official trailer for the final season that will focus on football. Along with the release date and trailer, Netflix announced that season 5 will be the final time the series follows a football program before shifting its focus to basketball.
With Laney College — which is located in Oakland, California — as the featured program, the new head coach that will be the focus of the series is John Beam, who has been head coach at Laney since 2012. Beam is also the school’s athletic director. He has previously served as the program’s running backs coach and offensive coordinator. During his time at Laney, the program has gone to six bowl games, two league titles, and the 2018 state championship.
The season will premiere on Tuesday, July 28.
“We’re thrilled to be able to delve into the world of Laney College for our fifth season and to have had the opportunity to document the incredible grit and drive of these JUCO players in Oakland,” said executive producer and director Greg Whiteley (Cheer). “With this series, we always wanted to give viewers a raw behind-the-scenes look at junior college athletics and we’re excited to expand the LCU legacy onto the court with JUCO basketball.”
Last Chance U: Basketball, meanwhile, will chronicle the 2019-20 season at East Los Angeles College.
