The final episode of Man in the Arena is to showcase Tom Brady’s 10th Super Bowl appearance in Super Bowl LV as well as his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But due to some undisclosed reason, ESPN failed to air the episode as planned. Naturally, as you might see from the reports above, fans aren’t happy about it.

Fortunately, ESPN hasn’t turned a blind eye to the issue and its support team confirmed that they are aware of the issue with episode 10 of Man in the Arena being unavailable or not airing and have escalated it to the ESPN+ team.

The support team hasn’t provided an ETA for the resolution, however, in situations like these, episodes become available sooner rather than later.

Therefore, you can expect episode 10 of Man in the Arena to begin airing within the next few hours if not earlier.

That said, we’ll keep an eye out for any further developments and will post an update if and when we come across information worth sharing.

There will be a 10th episode of #ManintheArena, but it’s still in production and likely out in Spring. As @TomBrady said in #Episode9, perspective comes with time and space so he wanted that to really reflect on what went down in Tampa last year. Be patient – it’ll be worth it! (Source)
