The Last Dance gave viewers an intimate view of Jordan and the core members of the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls team, who won the franchise its sixth and final championship of the 1990s.

The Bulls achieved two three-peats (1991-93, 1995-98) with Jordan leading the way.

The Last Dance had already become ESPN's most-watched documentary prior to the last two episodes airing Sunday night, averaging 5.8 million viewers across six episodes.
