No Season 2 for the Baz Luhrmann drama.
May 24, 2017
Word is out tonight that Netflix has cancelled The Get Down after its first season. The musical drama, which premiered last fall, was co-created by Baz Luhrmann, best known for his work in film direction. The famed director and producer shared the news with fans on Facebook, writing that his lack of availability to the series was a major factor in its cancellation.
The Get Down was Luhrmann's first foray into television after earlier successes in theatre and film over the past two-plus decades. Ambitious in nature, the project faced its share of difficulties throughout production, resulting in its 11-episode run being split into two parts that were released months apart.
Set in 1977 New York City, The Get Down followed a rag-tag crew of talented and soulful youth in the South Bronx who used improvised dance steps, verbal games, and spray cans to help transform music history at a time when the city gave birth to hip-hop, punk, and disco music.

Season 2 Came out, so I guess it wasn't canceled after the first season :)

I wanted to support my black people in film, but this show was lacking something...however, I loved the accuracies of '70-'80 NYC.

This was a good show yes it was a little cheesy but still good. Geared more for New Yorkers in their 30's and 40's since the show took place in the Bronx in the late 70's

It was a good show, but an expensive one. Not for a typical suburban type audience - I did not know Luhrmann wasn't as hands on either.

hmm. this might be a first.. no season 2 for a Netflix show.. however this season 1 was double the episodes of their other shows. -- I watched 2 or 3.. never really got into it overall.
