Dance drama series 'Step Up: High Water' has been officially renewed for a second season by YouTube Premium.

A spin-off of the original 'Step Up' film franchise, the show will be brought back with fresh 10 episodes for the upcoming season.

It will air sometime in 2019 on YouTube's subscription service. 

The platform has revealed that 'High Water' has generated over 22 million views since it premiered in January this year.

"With 'Step Up: High Water', we wanted to create a dramatic series that reflects the world where the YouTube audience lives — it's diverse, vibrant and authentic. The energy from the talented teams in front of and behind the camera brought this dance drama to life and pulled viewers in right from the start. We look forward to working with Lionsgate, Holly Sorensen and the full ensemble of actors, choreographers, writers, directors and creative minds behind this series for another exciting season," said YouTube global head of original content Susanne Daniels in a statement.


'Step Up: High Water' is set in a performing arts school (obviously) called High Water. It is said to be the best and most competitive dance institution in Atlanta. The plot revolves around the students of High Water and the faculty that trains them.

Every move needs to be spectacular and they need to burn the floor - thrust into this cutthroat environment are twins Tal and Janelle, played by Peatrice Jones and Lauryn McClain respectively. The story follows them as they try their best to not lose a step.  

The show also stars Marcus Mitchell, Terrence Green, Carlito Olivero, Jade Chynoweth, Kendra Oyesanya, Eric Graise, Faizon Love and Ne-Yo. The series was created and executive produced by showrunner Holly Sorensen. The co-producers for the series are Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot, Meredith Milton and the original 'Step Up' groovers actor Channing Tatum and actress Jenna Dewan.
