On the heels of its successful “Quarterback” series, Netflix is giving fans more inside access with the addition of another position.

“Receiver” follows Davante Adams (Las Vegas Raiders), Justin Jefferson (Minnesota Vikings), George Kittle (San Francisco 49ers), Deebo Samuel (San Francisco 49ers) and Amon-Ra St. Brown (Detroit Lions) from the 2023 NFL season.

The eight-episode series will debut on Wednesday, July 10th.

“The natural progression is from a pass to a catch, so we’re excited to dive into the ‘Receiver’ world after the success of our ‘Quarterback’ series,” Gabe Spitzer, vice president, nonfiction sports, Netflix, said in a press release. “NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions have delivered again in finding unique and dynamic athletes who will further highlight the drama of this sport on and off the field.”

By following Kittle and Samuel through the 2023 season, San Francisco 49ers fans will get an in-depth look at the team’s road to Super Bowl LVIII.

Last year, Samuel caught 60 receptions for 892 yards and seven touchdowns. He also rushed for 225 yards and five touchdowns. Kittle surpassed 1,00 yards receiving for the third time in his career last season, catching 65 passes for 1,020 yards and six touchdowns.
