Produced by Fulwell73, Sunderland 'Til I Die follows SAFC throughout the 2017/18 season, which saw them tackle life in the Championship following relegation from the Premier League.

The eight-part series begins with last summer's pre-season friendly against Celtic, and continues through to the club's second consecutive relegation to League One - or "Division Three" in old money - and Stewart Donald's takeover.

When can I watch it?

Sunderland 'Til I Die is set to arrive on Netflix on Friday, December 14.

There is no set time for the documentary to launch, but many of Netflix's programmes hit the streaming service just moments after midnight on their allotted day. Prepare for a weekend binge fest!

Who will I see in it?

Loads of familiar faces! As well as the expected on-pitch action, viewers will also get an inside look into the minds of some of the club's main players of the last season, including former chief executive Martin Bain, sacked manager Simon Grayson and football fans from across the city.

It also gives an opportunity to see candid conversations with and between the players in the boot room, at training and in the physio room.

Filming is ongoing for a second season, with a select number of SAFC fans given a glimpse at potential trailer footage at a special screening, held at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday.

Further details have not yet been confirmed.

Sunderland manager Jack Ross has recently spoken about working in front of the cameras - and has revealed he hopes to deliver the "perfect ending" for any further episodes as the season draws to a close.

Who are Fulwell73?

The production company Fulwell73 was set up in 2005 by lifelong Sunderland fans Gabe and Ben Turner, Leo Pearlman and Ben Winston. They take their name from the Fulwell stand in Roker Park, and the famous FA Cup win for Sunderland against Leeds.

The company co-produces The Late Late Show with James Corden, who was announced as joining Fulwell73 as a fifth full partner at the start of last year. Their television also include work on Sounds Like Friday Night, Gary Barlow and Friends and Stand Up To Cancer.
