and live on Freeview channel 276
Untold, a series of Netflix documentaries covering different true crime stories in the world of sport, has arrived for a second volume.
The series kicked off on Tuesday 16 August with The Girlfriend That Didn’t Exist, telling the story of American footballer Manti Te’o’s experience of catfishing. Untold is set to release new episodes weekly through to early September.
Here’s everything you need to know about Untold volume 2.
What is Untold about?
Untold shines a light on different scandals and stories from the world of sport. The first series, for example, featured interviews with Caitlyn Jenner about her Olympic career, and delved into the drama behind the Indiana Pacers-Detroit Pistons brawl.
Untold Volume 2 accounts for four different true sporting stories.
The first episode is called Untold: The Girlfriend That Didn’t Exist. It charts the story of Manti Te’o, the successful American footballer whose career was almost derailed entirely when he became unknowingly ensnared in a catfishing plot.
The second episode is called Untold: The Rise and Fall of AND1. It offers a comprehensive account of the footwear company AND1, its impact on the wider basketball industry, and where it all went wrong.
The third episode is called Untold: Operation Flagrant Foul. It features an exclusive interview with disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy, speaking for the first time in his involvement in the 2007 betting scandal. Tommy Martino, Jimmy ‘The Sheep’ Battista and FBI agent Phil Scala among others also contribute to the documentary.
The fourth and final episode is called Untold: The Race of the Century. It explains how a group of Australian underdogs were able to dethrone the New York Yacht club in the 1983 American Sailing Cup, ending one of the longest winning streaks in history.

Is there going to be a season 3 of Untold?
As of yet, Netflix is yet to officially announce whether or not there will be a third season of Untold. (Or a third “volume” of Untold, if you prefer.)
We’ll update this piece with the relevant information as soon as it becomes available. More likely than not, that’ll be after the release of the fourth and final episode of Untold volume 2 in early September.
Why should I watch Untold?
They’re ones to watch if you’re a fan of sports documentaries generally, but particularly so if you enjoy hearing about the less often discussed stories from the world of sport.
