'Last Chance U' Renewed For Fourth Season, Returns To Independence Community College

The Emmy-nominated series will follow coach Jason Brown's Pirates for a second straight season. 

Fans of Netflix's Emmy-nominated hit series "Last Chance U" can officially rejoice.

The documentary, which offers an unfiltered look into the experience of playing junior college football, has been renewed for a fourth season. The series will return to Independence, Kan., to follow the Independence Community College Pirates for a second straight season.

In a statement, director and executive producer Greg Whiteley expressed his excitement for the series' return to Indy to follow the Pirates and head coach Jason Brown.

"Coach Brown has recruited a number of players this season who have compelling back stories and it seems the Jayhawk conference as a whole has seen a surge in recruiting," Whiteley said in a statement. "As such, we feel that a return trip to Kansas is warranted.After visiting the ICC campus last week and meeting the new players, I think Season 4 could be our best season yet."
