The network reverses its decision on the film-based drama.
November 20, 2017
There is bad news today for fans of The Breaks looking forward to its second season. BET has reportedly decided against continuing on with the hip hop drama, reversing the renewal announcement made this past April.
The series premiered early this year on VH1 with an eight-episode run that had a fairly solid showing for the cable network. Shortly after its first season ended, it was announced that it would be returning for Season 2 along with a move to BET. With those plans now abandoned, the show will no longer have the chance to continue its story.
Based on the 2016 cable movie, The Breaks continued to follow Barry, DeeVee, and Nikki through the ups and downs of trying to break through in New York City's complex hip hop scene in the 1990s.
