Exclusive: Bon Jovi’s Epic Journey Revealed in New Docuseries Premiering on Hulu

Newark, New Jersey – A docuseries about the legendary rock band Bon Jovi is set to premiere on Hulu. Titled “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story,” the four-part series will debut on April 26. The series promises to feature the “full cooperation from all past and present members of Bon Jovi,” although it is unclear which members will be highlighted.

Throughout its history, Bon Jovi has included notable members such as keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres, guitarist Phil X, and bassist Hugh McDonald. The group’s original bassist, Alec John Such, left the band in 1994 and sadly passed away in 2022. Another prominent member, guitarist Richie Sambora, stepped away from the band in 2013.

The docuseries offers a rare glimpse into the personal and vulnerable moments of frontman Jon Bon Jovi. It will feature personal videos, unreleased early demos, original lyrics, and never-before-seen photos that chronicle the band’s journey from Jersey Shore clubs to becoming one of the biggest acts in the world.

Led by director Gotham Chopra, known for his work on documentaries about athletes like Kobe Bryant and Tom Brady, “Thank You, Goodnight” will delve into Bon Jovi’s biggest hits, disappointments, and moments of friction. The series is produced by ROS production and is executive produced by Giselle Parets and Ameeth Sankaran.

After its premiere on Hulu, the docuseries will become available on Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ elsewhere. This release comes 15 years after the Tribeca Film Festival debut of the previous Bon Jovi documentary, “Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful,” which focused on the band during their 2007 “Lost Highway Tour.”

The announcement of the docuseries comes as Bon Jovi celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. Richie Sambora, in an interview with People, expressed his belief that a reunion for the group could happen soon. Sambora last performed with his bandmates in 2018 when Bon Jovi was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The docuseries is expected to be a treat for fans and music enthusiasts alike. It offers a chance to go behind the scenes of Bon Jovi’s storied career and witness the band’s evolution over the past four decades. With its intimate access to the band members and a focus on their personal experiences, “Thank You, Goodnight” is poised to captivate audiences when it premieres in April.
