Back in 2016, Netflix came up with the musical series titled The Get Down. It is created by Baz Luhrmann and Stephen Adly Guirgis who are also the executive producers of the series alongside Shawn Ryan, Catherine Martin, Nasir Jones,
Marney Hochman, etc. Part 2 of the first season released back in 2017. Nas is the narrator of the musical series.
These are the cast members of the series: Justice Smith as Ezekiel Figuero, Shameik Moore as Curtis, Herizen F. Guardiola as Mylene Cruz, Skylan Brooks as Ronald Kipling, Tremaine Brown Jr. as Miles Kipling, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Clarence Caldwell, Jimmy Smits as Francisco Cruz. Some fans are still in the hope that a second season will happen. So below are all the important details for the second season of Netflix musical series The Get Down:
Unfortunately, Netflix not renewed The Get Down series for a second season and decided to cancel it. The streaming giant made an announcement about the cancelation soon after the release of the part 2 of season 1. Despite getting the love of audiences and positive response from the critics especially for acting, the series canceled after just one season.
So we have to say that The Get Down is not returning on Netflix for the second season.
Reason For Cancelation
When the series was in the development, it faces many delays in the production. Then the showrunner and writer also changed. Then Netflix decided to split the season 1 into two parts. There were earlier plans for the second season as the first season received good reviews. But then Netflix decided to cancel the series because the budget of the series got very much high.
The cost of making the first season which has 12 episodes is around ut $120 million which makes the series most expensive one. So we can expect that it is the reason behind Netflix decision to not renew the series for a second season.
Story Of The Get Down
The Get Down brings the audiences to 1970s and set in the South Bronx section of New York City. The musical series centered on a ragtag club of teenagers who run wild in the places of the Bronx.
