Ahead of next month’s premiere, here we showcase the first official trailer for part two of Netflix and Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down.
The ’70s hip-hop drama looks to go inside the music during the second half of the first seasons, delving into the musical future of both The Get Down Brothers and Mylene, as their respective genres begin to gain traction.
According to the official synoposis for part two:
“Part Two of The Get Down picks up in 1978, one year after the events of Part One. 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.”
The Get Down part two premieres on Netflix April 7.
