LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 18: Video tribute to the late musician David Bowie onstage during the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 18, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

In the nearly two years since his unexpected passing, the void left by David Bowie remains as vast as ever, but fans can look back and remember the music icon in an upcoming HBO special.

David Bowie: The Last Five Years covers (obviously) Bowie’s final years on Earth and primarily focuses on his last two studio albums, The Next Day and Blackstar.

The Last Five Years is packed with all sorts of archival footage and new interviews. So far, a premiere date hasn’t been announced, but it goes without saying that this will be must-watch for all Bowie fans.
