Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Netflix had dated the arrival of The Gets Down Part II alongside a new teaser trailer.

The clip, released Thursday, features clips from the upcoming season including quick looks at new glitzy performances and the use of a turntable as the show reaches 1978, a year after the events of Season 1.

"Gonna take our music from minor to major league," a voice over proclaims before the April 7 premiere date appears.

Set during the forefront of hip-hop, the ensemble cast includes Jimmy Smits, Justice Smith, Shameik Moore, Herizen F. Guardiola, Skylan Brooks, Jaden Smith, T.J. Brown Jr. and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

"Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it's only their creativity and love that will carry them through – and that they'll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other," reads the synopsis.
