The One Show On Netflix Everyone Should Watch This Weekend

Give Me A C.

If you thought Torrance had it hard, you'd better watch this...

So we all know Hollywood lives for a good reboot and remake - and if we're being honest, we do too, but sometimes a brand new movie or tv show will come along and things are even more similar than we expected.

Like Netflix's latest TV show, Cheer. 

Given the fact the streaming giant announces 1000 new shows a day, we didn’t bat an eyelid until we heard the description. The official description reads, “This gripping docuseries follows the ups and downs of Navarro College's competitive cheer squad as they work to win the coveted national title". Sound familiar?

From the same people who brought viewers Last Chance U, this series follows the competitive cheerleaders from Navarro College in the small town of Corsicana, Texas. Leading them is Monica Aldama, and since 2000 the junior college has won 13 National Championships.

Over six episodes, Cheer will tell the stories of several members of Aldama's squad as they strive to reach perfection, allowing viewers to witness their struggles and successes. It follows the group in the lead up to the National Cheerleading Association's National Cheerleading Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida, where Navarro was previously longstanding victors for 13 years.

However, in a stark change, the group has lost the championship twice over the past three years, putting more pressure on them than ever to deliver this time around. And aside from all the smiles and the hairspray, it makes being on a cheerleading squad look far more gruelling than we had ever thought.

Set to premiere Wednesday, January 8 on the streaming platform, Netflix has unveiled a first look at the show in a brand new trailer. 

Check out the trailer below:
