The two new 45-minute episodes bring Take Us Home: Leeds United to a fitting conclusion, having followed every twist and turn of Leeds United’s fortunes since the start of the 2018/19 season.
The first six episodes - released in August 2019 - followed Marcelo Bielsa’s first campaign in charge, including the notorious ‘Spygate’ incident, the Aston Villa goal that Bielsa instructed his team to give back, transfer drama, an epic play-off encounter and more.
The new episodes will give viewers a front-row seat to Leeds United’s extraordinary 2019/20 campaign.
The episodes will see the club celebrating its centenary before battling back from Covid-19 and the suspension of fixtures to finally secure promotion to the top tier after a 16-year wait.
Who is the narrator?
The series is narrated by Academy Award winner and avid Leeds fan Russell Crowe.
"I’ve loved Leeds all my life. I used to come home from playing sport when I was a kid to sit down and watch Match of the Day with my brother, and I was just hooked," said New Zealand-born Crowe.
"After years of pain, seeing the white army marching on together back to the Premier League where they should be has given me nothing but pleasure. And to be able to help tell the incredible story of the past two seasons through Take Us Home has been a real honour."
