‘The Get Down’ Canceled by Netflix


Netflix has canceled Baz Luhrmann’s “The Get Down” after one season.

The cancellation brings an official end to a series that was plagued by behind-the-scenes troubles and failed to connect with viewers in the ways that buzzy Netflix hits such as “Stranger Things” and “Orange is the New Black” have. Season one premiered in two parts, with the second part debuting on the streaming service in April to little fanfare. The first part of season one, which premiered last year, drew 3.2 million total U.S. adults 18-49 in its first 31 days, according to Symphony Advanced Media — roughly one fifth the audience that viewed “Orange is the New Black” season four in its first 31 days.

That is too bad. I really liked the tone of the show. It was like a mix of the Warrior,s and The Last Dragon.

A shame. I was actually tempted to check it out last night too.

The only true show about Hip Hop. It was real and showed the truth about how it all got started.

I thought the show was amazing. Sorry to hear this.
