Whenever you tear through a series on Netflix, it can be really hard to come down from it and return to the real world. But when that series is a docuseries, you don't actually have to say goodbye to the people on screen once the show is over. That's the case with Cheer, a six-part documentary that follows the Navarro College cheer team members as they train for the cheerleading National Championships in Daytona Beach, Florida. Since they're a real squad, Netflix's Cheer cast members' Instagrams are readily available, so you can continue to track their stories even after they end onscreen.
In the six episodes of Cheer, audiences get to see both the professional and personal ups and downs of the Navarro College cheerleaders. The cameras follow the squad during their training and also into their homes, where they express their love for their sport, and also open up about their lives off the mat. The same is true of their Instagram accounts. From posts supporting their teammates to behind-the-scenes videos at practice to the enigmatic Navarro team motto #FIOFMU, the Cheer cast's Instagrams are filled with all the spirit and energy that makes the show such a must-watch.
