Camera crews will follow Jurgen Klopp’s final Liverpool season for an all-access documentary, providing insight into the end of one of the club’s most thrilling modern chapters.

Alongside succession headaches for Liverpool’s hierarchy, one of the by-products of Jurgen Klopp’s shock decision to vacate his managerial post at the end of the 2023-24 season is an all-access documentary capturing the ride.

According to various reports, a new docu-series will encapsulate the German’s epic last dance with Liverpool Football Club at a time when his side is fighting for trophies on multiple fronts.

While little finer details are known about the series, we know it’s in the hands of a brilliant production team and has an enthralling subject that you won’t want to miss!

Everything you need to know about the upcoming Liverpool Football Club documentary

What details do we know?

At the moment, not much other than the fact it is in production. There has been no release date confirmed, though an educated guess would suspect it will hit screens sometime in late 2024. On top of this, it’s not been confirmed just yet which platform it will be streamed on either.

Who’s making the series?

Now this we do know. A team from Lorton Entertainment, who created Amazon Prime’s Diego Maradona film, Steven Gerrard ‘Make Us Dream’ as well as the Disney+ ‘Colleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story’, will film, direct and produce the series.

According to a release from the production company Ed Barratt, Julian Bird, Lucy Hard, Angus Paskin Orr and Kenneth Shepherd will executive produce the show, while Richard Cooke will act as the showrunner.

Viewers who’ve viewed any of the aforementioned documentaries will understand the capacity of the creative crew behind Klopp and Liverpool’s version of The Last Dance. Fans of the Diego Maradona film particularly understand what this production team are capable of.

Few sporting documentaries are as equally poignant and fascinating as the film, which followed the struggles and joys of Maradona, one of the football’s finest, and most flawed, superstars of all time. If the production crew can produce a similar level product, football fans are in for a treat.

What will the documentary cover?

It’s no secret the series will follow Klopp’s final season in charge at Liverpool. Not only is the German one of the greatest managers in Premier League history, but he’s also uniquely himself, someone unafraid of wearing his heart on his sleeve and riding each emotional wave flung his way.

His final season at the helm of the Merseyside club will send many waves of emotion in the German’s direction. Not only does he draw close to the most successful tenure of his managerial career, but also calls time on his connection and affiliation with a city he’s become intrinsically linked with.

For many of the current crop of Liverpool stars, Klopp is all they’ve known at Anfield. He was the man who brought them there, the man who nurtured them and the man they succeeded with. As the conclusion of his time at the club nears, not only will the series provide unrivalled access into the thoughts and emotions of Jurgen Klopp, but also those of his players, the fans and potentially even club executives.

Adding to the drama of the series, Liverpool is fighting for multiple titles in season 2023-24. In the Premier League, they’ve got their strongest chance of winning the title since collecting their first in 2019-20.

Mohamed Salah will likely play a pivotal role in the series

Even with star forward Mohamed Salah’s absence first through AFCON and then with injury, Liverpool has hardly skipped a beat all season as their unrelenting press and punishingly swift ball movement have hurt almost every opponent they’ve faced.

On the domestic cup front, the Reds find themselves in a League Cup final against Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea, a repeat of the 2022 final, which Liverpool won via an epic penalty shootout, while they remain in the FA Cup at the fifth round stage.

For a club synonymous with European Cup success, winning the Europa League isn’t as sweet as winning the Champions League. However, Liverpool is one of the frontrunners for Europe’s secondary club competition, and given Klopp’s reign began with an epic run to the Europa League final, claiming victory in the tournament feels fitting.

Speaking on the series, Klopp said; “With this being my final season I thought we should provide a rare opportunity for viewers to have more of an inside look at what makes this club so special – its people.”

On top of following Klopp’s final season, the series will also chart the club’s journey and rise into the global footballing juggernaut it is today, illuminating the beautiful human stories that have been key to building the club.

Are any other football documentaries hitting screens in 2024?

Yes, 2024 is shaping up to be a monstrous year for football documentaries. On top of the Klopp series, a film on Manchester United’s treble-winning 1998-99 season is expected to hit screens at some point this year. Add to this the third and final season of the hit Sunderland Til I Die series and a documentary focusing on the incredible rise of Brighton.
