Netflix’s ‘The Get Down’ returns with Part II in April

get-down

After the flop that was HBO’s Vinyl, Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix series The Get Down turned out to be a nice surprise — a coming of age story set against the burgeoning hip hop and disco revolutions, that was both visually and musically adventurous. (It also got much better after the Luhrmann-directed, overstuffed, wack-a-doo pilot.) Part II, which drops April 7 on Netflix, takes place in 1978, a year after the events of Part I:

The sweeping upheaval of late 70s New York City finds an as-yet-unnamed new pop cultural force striking a new beat in the Bronx, while disco still reigns supreme. Our young lovers Books and Mylene are caught in the swirl of a looming cultural revolution destined to change everything about their world – but they have this moment to make their mark. 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.

Watch a teaser for The Getdown Part II, and listen to Part 1‘s soundtrack, below.
