How to watch Netflix’s Last Chance U season 5: release date, preview, ratings, etc.

It’s now time to watch Last Chance U season 5, the series’ final football season, which just debuted on Netflix. Oh, and for this round, the show’s moved on from Jason Brown in canvas, bringing its cameras to the athletes attending Oakland, CA’s Laney College.

And in Oakland, the rules about JUCO (junior college) systems are much harsher than in past Last Chance seasons. So, I repeat, “we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

Here’s what’s new on Netflix, coming in August 2020

In California, JUCO athletes aren’t awarded scholarships, nor are they given free housing or food. And that sets the tone for how grim things get. Dior Walker-Scott, a wide receiver, isn’t just tasked with taking over at QB after three teammates go down to injury: he’s also sleeping in his car — and has his reasons for denying assistance. 

Wide receiver RJ Stern may live in a beautiful house filled with literature, but his family is overshadowed by the crimes of his grandfather. 

The season also dives deep into the mistreatment of black men and women at the hands of police officers, which feels very befitting of our present moment. 

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Last Chance U season 5 online.

Last Chance U is only one of the countless original films and tv shows on Netflix.

Last Chance U season 5 trailer

The Last Chance U season 5 trailer starts off with the focus on how the kids at Laney are looked down upon for being “the bad kids, the scrappy ones” and playing with “a chip on our shoulders and a punch in the mouth.”

Quickly, we’re introduced to coach John Beam, a firecracker of a man who looks like what happened if the cowboy from The Big Lebowski had an actual day job. He’s also shown off as a father figure to the students, who live the toughest JUCO run there is, including spending days without eating or raising kids while they play.

Last Chance U season 5 reviews

The only review out here comes from USA Today’s For The Win sports section, which describes season 5 as “raw and intense.” Critic Chris Korman writes “Days after finishing the screeners of the show,

I’m still trying to process what these men have gone through. Perhaps that sounds daunting to a viewer, but the resiliency of the players offers hope, as does the faith of the coach in charge of the program.”
