The passing of pop icon George Michael shocked many this past December, and to commemorate his legacy, Britain’s Channel 5 will air a new documentary about him on Thursday, March 23rd.
Aptly titled The Last Days of George Michael, the documentary will focus on the singer’s personal life, with interviews given by friends, family and fellow Wham! member Andrew Ridgeley. There is no word on whether the singer’s boyfriend at the time of his death, Fadi Fawaz, will appear, given his disagreements with the Michael family over the last few months.
According to The Sun, the documentary will also delve into why Michael (born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou) felt the need to remove himself from the spotlight in the last few years, his battles with drug addiction, and his plans for a comeback tour. A report released earlier this month revealed that Michael’s death was due to “natural causes.” He was 53 years old.
The Last Days of George Michael will air on Channel 5 at 9 p.m. in Britain. For those who reside in the U.S., however, or those who miss the initial airing, the documentary will be available to stream on Demand 5 within 24 hours.
