Renewed Or Cancelled?
Dance Monsters is the latest reality series competition on Netflix, bringing together dancers from all backgrounds to try and wow the judges – and the audience. The winner walks away with a cool $250,000 in cash so there’s a lot to play for. After finishing the whole series, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is Dance Monsters Season 1 about?
The premise is simple and brings together 15 contestants who are turned into CGI creatures via the magic of mo-cap to perform in front of audiences. Of course, given how janky motion capture actually is in real life, a lot of what’s here falls on the editing team to match up the dancers backstage with their digital avatars shown on-stage with audiences.
The result is clever to those at home, as it really feels like these monsters are actually out in force. In reality though, it’s probably just an empty stage these guys are reacting to. Once that illusion is broken, the audience reactions – complete with the usual gaggle of clapping, gasping and standing ovation
We have coverage of Dance Monsters on the site, including a full season review for this one. You can find that HERE!
Has Dance Monsters been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Dance Monsters has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Dance Monsters has had a pretty mixed reaction from audiences, with many pointing out the same as ourselves that the “fake” audience reaction to what are otherwise empty stages (the CGI monsters are input after filming) does cheapen the experience.
Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will be renewed for a second season. It’s the typical reality series format that appeals to the masses and follows a lot of the hallmarks that have made X-Factor and America’s Got Talent so successful over the years.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, if this is renewed expect a very similar format, with plenty more monsters, lots of talking points and big reveals during eliminations.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll have to wait and see what happens. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
