Want to know when the next episode of The Last Dance is on ESPN (or Netflix, internationally)? The ten-part documentary series, focusing on the Chicago Bulls' 1997-1998 NBA season and icons of that period like Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman, continues on Sunday in the US, or Monday if you live internationally where Netflix has the rights.
The Last Dance has been an enormous success for ESPN, with an average audience of 6.1 million viewers during its premiere. It's no surprise: this was a defining era of basketball for a lot of people, and audiences are starved of live sports right now. The documentary series was brought forward from a previous scheduled date of June.
