After earning rave reviews for its presentation of Major League Soccer on opening weekend, Apple TV is wasting no time in hooking more fútbol fans to its product with the release of a trailer (narrated by David Beckham) and release date for a new documentary, Real Madrid: Until The End.
The three-part series is coming to Apple TV+ on March 10, which is just five days before Ted Lasso Season 3 premieres on the streaming service. Real Madrid: Until The End focuses on the team's frankly unbelievable run to the 2021-22 Champions League title.
“The path to a 14th title has never been steeper,” old Golden Balls says in the trailer. “Many doubted it but not this coach, not these players and definitely not these fans. This is no ordinary club. This is Real Madrid.”
After winning the illustrious European club championship four out of five seasons between 2014 and 2018, the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and three straight years of failing to reach the final led many to call time on Real Madrid's dynasty. With many of the club's stalwarts now 30 or older (Luka Modrić, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Dani Carvajal, etc.), the future of the competition belonged to PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. Or so we thought.
Riding an unbelievable wave of second-leg comebacks at the Santiago Bernabéu, Real managed the impossible against PSG, Chelsea and City before again breaking Liverpool hearts in the final.
If there's one run that deserves a closer examination at every stage — even going back to the group stage defeat to Sheriff Tiraspol in Madrid — it's this one, and Real Madrid: Until The End promises an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at how Los Blancos captured their 14th Champions League crown.
We'll also get to see if Carlo Ancelotti actually does more than just raise an eyebrow to trigger some of the most thrilling finishes in all of sports.
