The Last Dance episode 5 and 6 release date, start time, how to watch in UK

The Last Dance documentary has proved extremely popular in the US, with an average of 6.1million viewers during its premiere making it the most-watched documentary in the history of the American network. For UK viewers, the series has equally proven to be popular with millions of viewers across the country tuning in.

The 10-part series follows Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls during their eventful run to a sixth NBA championship in 1998.

But what has seen the series set social media abuzz has been the all-access, behind the scenes footage along with the candid interviews from the likes of Jordan, Phil Jackson and Scottie Pippen among others.

There have already been a number of highlights through the first four episodes, including a look back on Rodman’s infamous ‘Vegas vacation’ and players such as Jordan and Isiah Thomas talking about the ‘Jordan rules’.

But with six episodes left there are set to be a number of throwback moments likely to draw fans in even further to the popular series.
