The popular documentary series follows an NFL team throughout training camp in preparing for the regular season. Hard Knocks – which began in 2001 – has never featured the Lions. The Indianapolis Colts were featured in 2021.

Detroit is entering its second season with head coach Dan Campbell leading the team. Despite a 3-13-1 record last season, Campbell remains intent on changing the culture and results moving forward.
