One such distraction is the Amazon Prime original docuseries “All or Nothing”. The series features a production crew following a franchise throughout an NFL season to give fans an idea of what happens behind the scenes.

Having witnessed Season 5 gain a lot of traction, fans have been awaiting the latest season of the show for quite some time. However, unfortunately, it looks like Season 6 might have to wait.

No Season 6 for NFL franchise    

Much to the disappointment of the NFL fans, there will be no Season 6 of All or Nothing in 2021. According to a report by Sports Business Journal, the Amazon Prime series did not shoot a Season 6 in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even apart from the pandemic, there have been deliberations about accelerating production to air episodes as the season progresses.

A move to clearly boost viewership numbers, it’s not something coaches are ready to allow. Airing episodes of an ongoing season can potentially leak confidential information about a team’s strategies and game plans.

All or Nothing does face competition from HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’, a show that follows an NFL team through its training camp preparing for the upcoming season of football.

Amazon, however, won’t be too worried. With the Jeff Bezos-owned company attaining exclusive rights to ‘Thursday Night Football’ from 2023, the company is now well and truly a part of the NFL broadcasting ecosystem.
