The 5th Quarter, the mock documentary series chronicling “the greatest untold and untrue stories in sports history” that attracted a slew of big names to its first season on Verizon’s go90, has been renewed for two more 10-episode seasons. Season 2 will bow November 30 with three episodes, with three more to come December 10 and the rest December 17. Season 3 will bow in early in 2018.
“We are very excited to be renewed for a second and third season of The 5th Quarter further expanding our relationship with go90,” said Ratner, OBB’s president and CEO. “This show exemplifies what we do best at OBB Pictures — bringing together top talent, both in front of and behind the camera, to create unique and original worlds for our audience.”
The new season kicks off with “Born to Walk,” the story of underdog Sheldon King’s climb to Olympic gold and the development of the fiercest rivalry the sport of Men’s Race-Walking has ever seen. Griffin plays King and Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley) is his nemesis Jimmy Kong.
