Hard Knocks, an HBO docu-reality series that gives football fans behind-the-scenes access to the training camp of an NFL team, will return for a third season on Wednesday, August 8 at 9PM ET/PT. The Kansas City Chiefs will serve as the subject of Hard Knocks’ third installment, which comes five years after a Summer 2002 edition that followed the Dallas Cowboys and six years after an initial Summer 2001 edition that followed the then-defending Superbowl champion Baltimore Ravens. “Hard Knocks is the most requested HBO sports show that we’ve ever had,” HBO Sports senior vice president Dave Harmon told reporters during a press conference announcing the show’s return. “It hasn’t been on for a couple of seasons because we haven’t found the right mix of teams and situations, but we feel like we have the right mix right now.”
