Newcastle or Chelsea Are Being Lined Up for the Next “All or Nothing” Series from Amazon
All eyes on the Premier League once again.
Newcastle United and Chelsea are reportedly the leading candidates to feature in the next series of Amazon Prime’s “All or Nothing” series, with both clubs already targeted by the production team.
The access all areas series – which follows teams on and off the pitch – has garnered massive success since its launch in 2018, and has become a cornerstone of contemporary football culture. The first series followed Manchester City during the ‘Centurion’ season of 2017/18, with two follow up seasons focusing on Spurs and Arsenal respectively.
🚨 Chelsea in the mix for an All or Nothing series. Under Roman Abramovich, club made it very clear they had absolutely no interest in being featured. Yet senior Amazon sources tell me they'll go back to the club & believe the new American owners have "an appetite" to be filmed.

According to CBS Sports reporter Ben Jacobs, Amazon are more confident than ever that Chelsea will be open to working with them on an ‘AoN’ series after previously declaring it would be of no interest under the ownership of Roman Abramovich. Following the arrival of Todd Boehly, it’s likely the Blues will be more open to extra media exposure as the club looks to build a new image to the wider world.
Away from the capital, Newcastle United are also in the conversation and – according to Jacobs – “could come first”. They’re also a club in quick transition at the start of a new era under the ownership of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. The Magpies have reportedly already turned down similar offers from other production companies, but are likely to give Amazon the green light should the series not have an “anti-Saudi angle”.
With filming on the next Premier League focused series proposed to begin for the 2023/24 season, the streaming powerhouse next turns its eyes to this year’s World Cup, with Germany the subject of an ‘All or Nothing’ series out in Qatar.
