As ex-Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora asks at the start of the trailer (see below), “Are we telling the truth? Are we going to lie? What are we going to do?” Only the band can answer that but we have a ringside seat as they decide.

Over four episodes, the inside story of one of the world's biggest rock bands takes us, and them, through four decades of high octane success and excess on one of the wildest rides imaginable. 

It may not be "The Dirt" (the 2019 Mötley Crüe biopic) but there's enough tension, drama and jeopardy to go round. Public fallings-out; Sambora quits/is sacked/ replaced, and Jon Bon Jovi's vocal injury threatens to bring the band's journey to a close.

With a soundtrack like this, you won't want to miss out. Read on to find out how to watch "Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story" online and from anywhere.

'Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story' episode guide

  • S1E1 "New Jersey vs. Everybody" - Teenage Jon cuts his teeth performing in bars and rushing back for school. Now, on the cusp of his 60th birthday, he reflects on the past 40 years.
  • S1E2 "Nowhere to Everywhere" - The band becomes an overnight hit, but tensions escalate even as success burgeons for Bon Jovi. The cocktail of fatigue vs. ambition highlighted by a performance in Guadalajara, Mexico could just be Bon Jovi's demise.
  • S1E3 "Brothers in Arms" - With renewed perspective, Bon Jovi introduces themselves to a new generation of fans at the turn of the millennium with a fresh sound and the same iconic reputation - until the band is ripped apart by Richie's sudden and painful departure.
  • S1E4 "Legendary" - Following Richie's sudden departure, Jon slips into darkness. With the downtime during the pandemic, healing time from surgery and a milestone 60th birthday, Jon is left exclusively to wonder if he's become the man he was meant to be.

Why did Bon Jovi decide to make this documentary now?

"It's a round number, you know?" Jon Bon Jovi told one U.S. magazine. "I mean, I think 40 years is worth taking a look back... 50? I think at 50, [I] sort of wonder, 'Will I make it?' It was the 38th anniversary-ish when these thoughts came across my mind, you know, and I thought, 'Time to archive things, time to consider a documentary, time to think about what's the plan,' and this all came together."
