The popular Netflix docuseries, Sunderland ‘Til I Die, is set to return for its final season. Initially released in 2018, the series has been a captivating journey through the ups and downs of Sunderland's football seasons. This article will delve into what fans can expect from this much-anticipated final installment.

The series first highlighted Sunderland’s 2017/18 season - their first campaign back in the Championship since 2006 after being relegated from the Premier League. The inaugural season was met with an overwhelmingly positive critical response due to its high-quality production and dramatic narrative.

Unfortunately for Sunderland, also known as The Black Cats, they were once again relegated down to League One after a disappointing season in the second tier. Despite this setback, their story continued to captivate audiences leading to a renewal of the show for a second season.

Second season saw the rejuvenation of club under new ownership

The second installment documented the club’s 2018/19 campaign under new ownership. It was an emotional rollercoaster as Sunderland nearly jumped straight back up to the Championship but fell short in playoffs in the Charlton Athletic match. In a heart-wrenching finale, they lost by conceding a game-winning goal during added time.

Behind-the-scenes heroes Ben Turner and Leo Pearlman played pivotal roles in creating this docuseries through their production company Fulwell73. Their dedication even led them recently joining the club’s board of directors.

After four years off-screen, fans will be thrilled that Sunderland ‘Til I Die returns this February with its final chapter on Netflix.

However, calling it an official 'season' may not be entirely accurate as it consists only of three episodes - significantly shorter than previous seasons which had eight and six episodes respectively.

Final chapter will be about Sunderland’s journey on Championship return

Despite its brevity, the final season promises to be as exciting as ever. According to reports, it will highlight Sunderland’s triumphant return to the Championship fixtures. The Black Cats finally earned promotion back to the second-tiered division following their successful 2021/22 campaign.

Manager Alex Neil was instrumental in lifting the club out of League One before moving on to Stoke City. However, his tenure at Stoke was short-lived as he was sacked in December.

The final season of Sunderland 'Til I Die is set to hit Netflix soon and promises a thrilling conclusion for sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike. While Netflix has yet to release an official trailer for this upcoming season, they have hinted at a debut date of Tuesday, February 13th.

This docuseries has been a captivating journey through Sunderland's football history and its final chapter is sure not only provide closure but also leave a lasting impact on its audience.
