We’ll finally get a behind-the-scenes look at Giants’ off-season

The streaming service Max has confirmed that The New York Giants will be the subject of the 2024 first-ever offseason edition of Hard Knocks.

The Giants — and more specifically Giants co-owner John Mara — have long resisted being the subject of the HBO series that grants viewers an uncommon look behind the scenes. The Giants have eschewed this kind of spectacle as much, and as often, as possible. They would obviously prefer to avoid any potential distractions, and have thus far been one of the (few) teams to continuously dodge appearing on the annual show.

“As we enter our 100th season, we look forward to providing our fans with the opportunity to see what it takes to build an NFL roster,” said Nilay Shah, Giants senior vice president, of marketing and brand strategy, in a statement announcing the agreement. Beginning the moment the previous season ended, we gave NFL Films unprecedented access to this critical time of the year. We know viewers will gain insight from moments that have never been captured before and are excited for them to learn more about our Giants history.”

Fans, however, have long wanted a glimpse behind the curtain at Giants’ offseason. This year will be their opportunity, and it could be revealing as this is a potentially pivotal year for the franchise.

HBO executives released the following statement:

“We are beyond thrilled that the New York Giants have opened their doors to the Hard Knocks cameras for the first time ever. The NFL offseason is a fascinating period that we’ve always wanted to explore and we can’t wait to show football fans everywhere what NFL Films has been capturing behind the scenes at the team’s headquarters.”

And as noted, this year marks the Giants’ 100th anniversary as a franchise, so it makes sense that the NFL would want to capitalize on a historic season.
