‘Bring It On’ Fans Will Be Obsessed With New Netflix Series ‘Cheer’

You only have to have watched Bring It On once to know how massive competitive cheerleading is in America. It's literally the bread and butter of every high school.

And if you were a fan of the high school sport comedy film then you'll definitely want to tune in to Netflix's new offering: Cheers.

Forget the Toros and the Clovers. This new offering takes a documentary form, and gives us a completely different look at the world of US College cheerleading competitions IRL.

Focusing in on a cheerleading squad in the small town of Corsicana, Texas, the show - premiering on the platform tomorrow - "follows the ups and downs of Navarro College's competitive cheer squad as they work to win the coveted national title".

And aside from all the smiles and the hairspray, it makes being on a cheerleading squad look *seriously* gruelling.

Led by Monica Aldama, the team is made up of people who have travelled far and wide to participate, and has bagged an impressive 14 National Championships since 2000.

"My goal was to be the best cheer program in the country," says Aldama in the trailer.
