Step Up Season 4: Is it happening or not?

Step Up: Will there be a Season 4?

Unfortunately, the answer is NO! Starz has officially confirmed that the fourth season of Step Up has been canceled by the network after three seasons. The first two seasons of the Lionsgate TV TV-produced Step Up ran on YouTube. After the Google-owned company in 2019 pulled out of the original scripted business, leaving the series in limbo, Lionsgate-owned Starz stepped in and picked it up for a third season. 

The cancellation of Step Up follows Starz’s cancellation of another Lionsgate TV-produced series, Dangerous Liaisons, reversing its early Season 2 renewal. Lionsgate has been scrutinizing its balance sheets as the company is preparing to spin off its studio from Starz next year though sources indicated that the cancellations are largely the product of fiscal austerity in a very tough economic environment as media companies are stepping up cost-cutting measures. 

Take a look at some of the fan’s reactions to the sudden cancellation of the show:
