Netflix announced today that Last Chance U will be returning for Season 5, which will be its last. The series, which premiered in 2016 as the streaming service's first-ever sports documentary, has garnered critical acclaim over the course of its four-year run.

The show's first two seasons followed East Mississippi Community College's junior football team, focusing on a group of players who have had to deal with tough life circumstances, and their quest for redemption. Season 3 moved to Kansas, where the junior college football program at Independence Community College was the focus through Season 4.

The fifth and final season of Last Chance U, which will be set at Laney College in Oakland, CA, premieres on July 28.

While the series may be ending, today's announcement confirmed that a spin-off is already in the works. Last Chance U: Basketball is set to hit Netflix in 2021.
