The Arizona Cardinals will be featured on the upcoming season of Hard Knocks, and the show will likely delve into the Kyler Murray drama that has been ongoing all offseason.

On Monday, HBO announced they will be following the Cardinals this offseason leading up to next season.


“Last season Hard Knocks made an unprecedented leap, documenting an NFL regular season in real time for the first time ever with the Indianapolis Colts,” said Keith Cossrow, NFL Films Vice President and Senior Coordinating Producer. “It was a vivid and illuminating look at the life of an NFL team. This season, we are eager to build on that success and go even further with one of the most exciting teams in the NFL. We can’t wait to get to work in Arizona, and we thank Michael Bidwill, Steve Keim, Coach Kingsbury and the entire Cardinals organization for this opportunity.”

“We’re excited to feature the Arizona Cardinals on Hard Knocks during the NFL regular season in the upcoming installment of Hard Knocks In Season,” said Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller, Co-Heads Of HBO Documentary & Family Programming. “We couldn’t be happier to continue to expand our tremendously successful partnership with the NFL and grow the Hard Knocks experience for our viewers. We’re thrilled that the Cardinals will be joining the roster of teams that have graciously invited our audiences into their world.”

HBO’s announcement comes hours after ESPN’s Adam Schefter revealed Kyler Murray skipped out on OTAs as he looks for a new contract with the team.

Back in February, Murray’s agent released a long statement pinpointing the importance that Murray gets a contract extension from the team this offseason.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the Kyler Murray drama unfolds in front of HBO’s cameras.
