The second part of The Get Down is out with five new episodes totally just over five and a half new hours but for many, that will only quench their thirst for a little while and may will be asking whether or not The Get Down will be coming back for a second season or a part 3. Let’s find out.
The musical show is based on a group of kids growing up in the Bronx during the 70’s. Crime is rampant and they use music as a refuge from the struggles of life. There are multiple people’s stories we follow although the two biggest are Mylene Cruz and Ezekiel’s. The show is mainly known for its stellar soundtrack.
The Get Down Part 3/Season 2 Renewal Status
Official renewal status: Not yet renewed (Last updated: 04/08/2017)
The big question here is whether the show will be renewed or not. We’ll go into a little more detail behind a few business technicalities that may hold up a potential renewal but purely on plot, there’s obviously places for the show to continue on from.
Personally, the show has become a bit of a mess in places. It’s obvious that Jaden Smith was unavailable for much of the filming as he’s notably absent and instead pops up in his own scenes sort of half-assed. Add to that the plot wraps up quite nicely with a dot dot dot, much like some of Baz Luhrmann’s other work, it could be conveniently ended right now.
In an interview with Indiewire, the cast was also somewhat curious as to where a new season would lead to.
When will Part 3 or Season 2 be added to Netflix?
If they’re splitting up seasons into two and releasing them on the same schedule as parts 1 and 2, it’d be likely we’ll see a new season by the close of 2017. Given how much goes into making this show, don’t be surprised if we see it go on a one or two-year hiatus while another season is produced. That could potentially mean no new Get Down episodes until 2018 or 2019 at the earliest.
Could The Get Down Be Canceled?
From the early days of The Get Down, we always knew it was going to be an expensive project just because of the glitz and the content it was producing. To this date, it’s thought that the series is the second most expensive of all time for Netflix with only The Crown topping it. The series is produced by Sony on behalf of Netflix and it’s not the first series Sony Pictures has produced.
The series is produced by Sony on behalf of Netflix and it’s not the first series Sony Pictures has produced. Bloodline is the most notable show produced by Sony Pictures but that has been canceled and for reasons that could apply for The Get Down too. Bloodline will be canceled after the release of season 3 because of costs compared to the benefits of the show. The Get Down is infinitely more expensive so could follow the same route. Ultimately, it’ll depend on viewing figures which of course, Netflix is notoriously bad at releasing.
