We got a fresh teaser for The Get Down, Part II and now we have been by blessed with a full trailer by Netflix! The show was once heavily rumored to have been cancelled due to poor ratings and expensive costs to bring the show to life. Baz Luhrmann the show’s executive producer shot down all of those rumors including one floating around about the suicide of Jaden Smith’s character Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling.

THE GET DOWN

Part II of The Get Down picks up in 1978, one year after the events of part one. The trailer focuses on primarily the Books (Justice Smith) and Mylene (Herizen F. Guardiola) dynamic. The couple’s relationship is tested as Books struggles to balance his commitment to The Get Down Brothers and his corporate internship while Mylene is on her way to becoming a disco superstar.

We also get a little insight on the battle with The Get Down Brother’s other founder DJ Shaolin Fantastic (Shameik Moore) and his ties with Fat Annie’s (Lillian White) drug business and how it will also affect The Get Down Brothers future. Part II looks to be even better than the first, checkout the full trailer for The Get Down, Part II above and check out the more stills and the official poster below.
