After an Emmy-winning first season, Amazon’s All or Nothing NFL documentary series will return for Season Two on June 30. The new season will follow the 2016 Los Angeles Rams through their first year in a new city.
The NFL tweeted a trailer Thursday.

All or Nothing‘s first season, which featured the 2015 Arizona Cardinals, won a Sports Emmy on Tuesday for outstanding serialized documentary.
Amazon announced back in March that the second season would follow the Rams. Los Angeles was not a good team in 2016, finishing 4-12 on the year, but the franchise’s first season on the West Coast featured a fair amount of drama. The Rams’ departure from St. Louis will surely be a storyline, as will the tumultuous rookie season of Jared Goff, the Case Keenum concussion ordeal and the firing of coach Jeff Fisher. In one tense-looking moment in the trailer, Fisher informs the players that he’s not longer their coach.
Then again, the Rams appeared last fall on HBO’s Hard Knocks, so hardcore NFL fans (and watchers of sports documentary series) might already be tired of Fisher, Goff and company. Players adjusting to a new city can only entertain an audience for so long.
Whether or not the Rams are the most exciting team in football, there’s novelty to a true behind-the-scenes look at any NFL team. All-access sports documentaries, led by Hard Knocks, have been around for a while, but All or Nothing takes the concept to the next level with full-season access to professional athletes.
Coming off an acclaimed first season, All or Nothing faces big expectations in Season 2. We’ll find out June 30 whether it can deliver.
