Starz has cancelled the “Step Up” series after one season on its network.
The upcoming Season 3 finale, slated to premiere next week, will serve as a series finale.
Produced by Lionsgate TV, the first two seasons of the show were released on YouTube. Starz revived the show in 2020 after it was left in limbo when YouTube took a step back from producing original scripted content.
According to the series description, the musical drama followed the students and faculty of High Water, “an incubator for new artistic talent where founder Sage Odom (Ne-yo) and his partner Collette Jones (Christina Milian) struggle to maintain their empire.”
In Season 3, viewers witnessed Sage, Colette and their relationship challenged as they faced criminal charges, financial ruin, and powerful political enemies who wanted to destroy Sage and High Water.
The cancellation of “Step Up” follows Starz’s cancellation yesterday of another Lionsgate TV-produced series, “Dangerous Liaisons”, reversing its early Season 2 renewal.
Series also stars Faizon Love, Eric Graise, Terayle Hill, Enrique Murciano and Tricia Helfer.
