It's official: Be The Player is returning for it's third season.
The all-access documentary series has been widely acclaimed over the past two pre-seasons, and will once again take over our website and socials throughout the 2021 pre-season.
Here's everything you need to know about the new season, ahead of the release of Episode One on Friday, December 11.
Be The Player S03 Teaser
Be The Player: A background
The past two seasons featured weekly episodes, detailing the players' journey from preparing during the off-season right through to the final approach to Round One.
The series has detailed the arrivals of players such as David Klemmer, Edrick Lee and Enari Tuala, as well as the first day of Adam O'Brien in late 2019.
It has introduced fans to players like Tex Hoy, Bradman Best and Phoenix Crossland before their NRL debuts, and brought the tireless community work of the likes of Mitch Barnett and Josh King to the forefront.
Season 3 will continue to evolve side by side with the Club, as the series has done over the past two seasons, with the original three minute episodes of Season 1 morphing into the documentary-style, longer-form episodes of Season 2.

Key Season 3 Information
The biggest change to Be The Player this year will be the number of episodes.
Episodes will drop fortnightly rather than weekly, with six episodes being released in total.
Fans will be given never-before-seen access inside the walls of Knights HQ, be introduced to new signings such as Tyson Frizell, Dominic Young and Sauaso Sue, as well as being able to follow the players at training and in the gym as they prepare for the 2021 season.
