Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported that ESPN is moving up the release date of ‘The Last Dance,’ the highly anticipated 10-part documentary series on Michael Jordan and the 1998 Bulls, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Marchand, the new start date is April 19. Until now, the docuseries was billed as being released some time in June.
So let us ALL rejoice. It won’t replace the entirety of the void left by the halting of live sports, but this series is sure to be essential and as close as the sports world get to a monocultural event under the current parameters.
