Six Nations and Netflix have confirmed the recommission of Six Nations: Full Contact for a second series following the huge success of season one.

Produced by Box To Box Films, the award-winning producers of groundbreaking international hit series Formula 1: Drive to Survive, the second instalment of Six Nations: Full Contact will once again go behind the scenes to offer fans an intimate view of Europe’s six international unions as they battle it out in the 2024 Guinness Men's Six Nations, and promises to delve deeper into the game as well as the lives of the players and coaches.

This year’s Championship has already delivered some enthralling contests on the pitch and has been packed with memorable moments - including plenty of last-minute drama -that will captivate audiences in season two: England’s upset of reigning Grand Slam Champions Ireland with the final play of the game; Italy’s first home victory in 11 years coming off the back of an emotional draw against France; and Scotland’s defence of the Calcutta Cup.

The matchday action is captured not only from every angle on the field, but from the inner sanctum of the changing rooms and coaches’ boxes, as well as seen and heard through family and friends, mic’d up in the stands.

Camera crews from production company Box To Box have been embedded with the unions since January, documenting the physical, mental and emotional preparation the players and coaches go through to compete in the world’s greatest annual rugby competition.

Commenting on the series' commission, Tom Harrison, Chief Executive Officer of Six Nations Rugby, said: “We are delighted to be bringing audiences all over the world another instalment of the intimate and uncompromising portrayal of the world’s greatest annual international rugby tournament.

“With season one having been so well received, we’re certain that the follow-up will continue to attract new fans and help propel the game’s global appeal.”

James Gay Rees, co-founder of Box To Box Films and Executive Producer, added: “It’s always a privilege to gain access into someone’s life, but to be able to capture the hard work, commitment and strategy that enables each of these teams to perform at the highest level, is a real coup.

“We know fans of the sport have loved seeing what goes on behind closed doors and we hope that the stories we get to tell off the pitch will serve to enhance the incredible drama that we have already seen this year on the pitch this Six Nations.”

The second series of Six Nations: Full Contact will launch on Netflix in 2025.
