Starz

Starz celebrated National Dance Day on Saturday by releasing the trailer for the third season of Step Up starring Ne-Yo and Christina Milian.

Inspired by the Step Up dance movie franchise, the TV series launched in 2018 on YouTube as Step Up: High Water and continued with Season 2 in 2019. The show was then cancelled and later picked up by Starz, which renamed it simply, Step Up.

In the new season, the founder and star of the High Water label, Sage Odom (Ne-Yo), is facing murder charges. His business and love partner, Collette Jones (Milian), struggles to maintain the company and performing arts school as she attempts to continue a national tour without Odom.

Milian has replaced the late Naya Rivera, who starred as Jones in the first two seasons. Rivera died in July 2020 when she drowned while swimming in Lake Piru near Santa Clarita, California. She was 33.

The third season of Step Up will premiere Sunday, October 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
