THE GET DOWN 2

After making its debut last August, The Get Down is returning to our screens in just a few weeks’ time. Today Netflix announced that season two of Baz Luhrmann’S ’70s hip-hop series will be released on April 7 (and yes, because it’s Netflix, the entire season will be available to stream right away). “We’re gonna take our music from minor to major league,” says Shaolin Fantastic (played by Shameik Moore) in the 15-second teaser trailer.

“Part II is set in 1978, a year after the events of the debut season,” according to Deadline. “With disco reigning supreme, a new, as-yet-unnamed genre is burgeoning, with young lovers Books and Mylene caught up in the looming cultural revolution. Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it’s only their creativity and love that will carry them through – and that they’ll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other.”
