37 One-Season Wonders That Didn’t Deserve Their Premature Cancellations
The Get Down
Baz Luhrman took more than ten years to develop The Get Down, but audiences lost faith after only eleven episodes. The $120 million overshoot of Baz’s approved $7.5 million budget might’ve had something to do with its cancellation despite a second-half that took season one from good to great. The series followed a group of teenagers in 1970s New York City as they navigate the rise of hip-hop and disco while combating area gangs, poverty, and the trials and tribulations of coming up in the music industry.
