The Get Down Gets Cancelled – Are Netflix Cutting Costs?

“The Get Down” has been cancelled by Netflix after just one season which has to make you wonder whether the spiralling costs of season one were to blame. Initially budgeted at around $120m for the full 12 episodes but this was rumoured to have ended up being nearer $200m making it one of the most expensive TV series ever made.

Regardless of the reasons, there won’t be a 2nd season so if the roots of New York hip-hop is your thing then you’ll have to make do with just having one season – but it’s a Netflix Original so at least it will always be available!

  1. Unfortunately, Netflix doesn’t post ratings. Maybe it didn’t have a big enough audience to justify the expensive production costs. We watched a few episodes, but it didn’t “grab” us. Then we forgot about the show altogether. Same thing with the Lemony Snicket series. Watched 4 episodes and just got bored with it. Two different types of shows, but for us, neither were “binge worthy”. We love Bloodline, but this coming 3rd season will be the last.
