In case you haven't heard, "Step Up: High Water" is returning for a second season. Yay! In fact, production for the 10-episode, hourlong series is currently underway in Atlanta, GA. As if we weren't already excited enough, check out who's returning for Season 2—and all the stars who'll be entering the "High Water" universe for the very first time.
If Jenna Dewan has taught us anything these past few months, it's that dancing can truly heal the soul. Shortly after she and Channing Tatum split (and hearts around the world collectively broke), Dewan released a beautifully emotional video of herself dancing on a beach at sunset. It was pure, raw catharsis, and proof that the best way to handle your feelings is to dance through them. Now, in Harper's Bazaar, Dewan is dancing again—this time with a little help from a lot of sequins, fishnets, and shoulder pads.
Proving that dance prayers are sometimes answered, "WOD" judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough and host Jenna Dewan decided to bless the universe with the dance battle fans have been campaigning for since Season 1. And the result is EVERYTHING.
So, after you perused the talent-packed list of acts (all 75 of them!) competing in the second season of NBC's "World of Dance," we're guessing you thought something along the lines of, Hey—this could be pretty fun.
Well, forget hypotheticals: The "WOD" team just put out a trailer that shows exactly how fun Season 2 is going to be. Full of mind-bogglingly impressive clips of some of our favorite dancers, plus commentary from J.Lo, D.Hough, Ne-Yo, and J.Dewan, it'll have you wishing May 29th—aka the show's premiere date—would hurry up and arrive already.
Who's about to face this beautiful judging panel? (NBC)
It's baaaack! Season 2 of NBC's "World of Dance" will return to living rooms everywhere on May 29. Also baaaack? Well, judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo, and host Jenna Dewan, for starters. But some fan favorites from last season's stellar cast will also take to the show's stage again. And they'll be facing off against a slew of new competitors—although many of those faces will probably be familiar to dance-world folks, too.
