The competitors were initally supposed to take part in the 2020 Games in The Hague which ahve now been pushed back to 2022. The series will follow their training and track how their journies up until the Games.
The show is part of Harry and Meghan’s deal with Neflix through their company Archewell Productions which will see the two overseeing the creation of many different media ventures, including documentaries, feature films and even children’s content.
In a statement, Prince Harry commented, “Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve.”
“This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year. As Archewell Productions’ first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, I couldn’t be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service,” he continued.
