The LA Rams were the subject of HBO’s Hard Knocks only four years ago, when Jeff Fisher was the head coach and the team was moving to Los Angeles.
Apparently the LA story, or more likely the opening of SoFi Stadium for the 2020 season, is a worthy enough story to bring the Rams back to the show again and they won’t be alone. According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Hard Knocks will feature both the Rams and the LA Chargers when filming begins during the next training camp. Whenever the next training camp is.
For the first time, Hard Knocks is planning to supersize and feature two teams this summer: the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers, league sources tell ESPN.*— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 7, 2020
*(If there’s training camp)
The Chargers and Rams both have the storyline of moving into SoFi Stadium, which is currently still being completed, with everyone involved hopeful that the grand opening won’t be delayed by the ongoing pandemic. For the Rams, they’ll be looking to bounce back from a disappointing season following their Super Bowl run in 2018. For the Chargers, life without Philip Rivers and potentially a new franchise QB under center depending on how the draft goes.
Schefter notes that because NFL Films is already in Los Angeles, they feel it has the capacity to film two training camps at once for the next season of the show.
