Step Up (TV Series), which is previously titled Step-Up: High Water is a drama TV series based on the Step Up film franchise created by Duane Adler. The series premiered on January 31, 2018 on YouTube RED. The series was created by Holly Sorensen, who also worked alongside Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan as an executive producer. In May 2018, YouTube announced it had renewed the Georgia-filmed series for a second season but was canceled in August 2019. Then in May 2020, Start picked up the series for a third season.

What is the show about?

The series centers around the students and faculty of “High Water”, Atlanta’s most prestigious performing arts school. When twins Tal and Janelle move from Ohio, they find themselves thrust into a world where every move is a test. As they attempt to navigate their new world— on and off the dance floor— they’ll discover just how deep they’re willing to dig to realize their dreams and seize their moment.
