Professional soccer players give it their all on the field, but they all have lives outside of the sport, too. Now, a new series called The Offseason will document two weeks of that downtime.

This new series features National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) players as they spend two weeks in Miami training and living together in two different houses. It’s been described by Variety as the “NWSL version of Big Brother,” raising all kinds of questions about who will be on the show and what was captured on camera.

By the way, the show has some big names behind it: It was created by Angel City FC lead investor Alexis Ohanian (who happens to be married to tennis GOAT Serena Williams) and U.S. women’s national team forward Midge Purce. It’s also produced by Alex Baskin, the executive producer of the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules, so you know it’s going to be good.

But who will be featured in The Offseason and when can you catch it? Here’s what you need to know.

Who is in the cast?

Midge is one of the big names in the series, but there are plenty of other biggies in the mix, too. Here’s the cast list, according to Variety:

  • Midge Purce

  • Maria Sanchez

  • Lo’eau LaBonta

  • Michelle Alozie

  • Taylor Smith

  • Nikki Stanton

  • Ally Watt

  • Taryn Torres

  • Paige Nielsen

  • Ify Onumonu

“There was a time when I had to balance training in the offseason and developing The Offseason show,” Purce previously told Women’s Health. “That was one of the most difficult things that I've ever done—trying to prepare something that's gonna ultimately improve my game in the future and help me and facilitate my life and other players, while also having the discipline to do the things that I need to do, and not get too tired or overworked.”

When will it air?

There’s no air date released just yet—Variety simply says that it’s “in production.” So, things are TBD when it comes to a potential TV channel or streaming platform.

What will happen on the show?

A few behind-the-scenes clips have already been dropped on The Offseason’s X account. In one clip, a player can be seen from behind walking up to the front of a house, before leaving her cleats out in front with all the others.

Another shows video from up high of pro soccer players training on a field:

It’s not all business, though. There are also videos of players partying on a yacht:

Can’t wait!
