Netflix has greenlit a third season of its documentary series Last Chance U, the network said Thursday.

The junior college football-focused series will continue to follow the lives of elite athletes who deal with personal dramas, past mistakes and future goals as they hopefully realize their dreams of competing at the next level, according to Netflix. The next season will focus on Independence Community College in Kansas.

“While we now have the opportunity to head to Kansas, we hope to revisit the people we've grown to love over the past two seasons of Last Chance U,” said director Greg Whiteley in a statement. “We are forever grateful to the talented team at East Mississippi Community College who dedicated months of their lives in Scooba and trusted us to tell their incredible stories.”

Last Chance U is a Netflix production in association with Condé Nast Entertainment, Endgame Entertainment and One Potato Productions, and is executive produced by Greg Whiteley, Joe LaBracio, Dawn Ostroff, Lucas Smith, James Stern, Ben Cotner, Adam Del Deo and Lisa Nishimura.
