Fans have been entertained by the iconic Dallas Cowboys cheerleading squad for decades, and have also been treated to watching an annual documentary series in which women try out for a spot on the legendary lineup. But unfortunately, that came to a close in 2022. 

But the good news is that they're returning to the small screen! 

The seven 45-minute episodes that will be airing on Netflix were directed by Greg Whiteley and will be titled "America’s Sweethearts: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders", and will be opening with last summer's auditions. 

“To their infinite credit, the Cowboys offered unfettered access for the year we filmed the DCC and left us alone," said Whiteley. "The result is an authentic portrait of one of the most storied and beloved institutions we have in American pop culture.”

"Led by longtime director Kelli Finglass, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders opens their doors to document the personal stories behind the uniforms – revealing the drive, hustle, and drama among the cheerleaders and coaches. For many, it’s a dream to make the team - but that’s only just the beginning," the team said in a statement.

Cowboys executive vice president/chief brand officer and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders president Charlotte Jones can't wait to see the finished product. 

"The storytelling through this open access will captivate viewers episode after episode and Netflix’s global stage is the perfect platform to showcase it,” Jones said. “We went into this understanding that the opportunity to transparently share the journey of our season, and the emotions, challenges and joy experienced along the way, is exactly what our fans and viewers would want."

"It’s also part of the reason that, for decades, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have earned their place as being ‘often imitated, but never equaled’" Jones said.
