Step Up is getting the TV treatment, and one of the show’s stars, Naya Rivera, couldn’t be more excited about its progress.

Ahead its debut, Rivera, who will play a former dancer-turned-high school administrator in the revival series for YouTube Red, titled Step Up: High Water, has teased just how great she thinks the show will be.

“Officially my last day of shooting season 1 of @StepUpSeries! I’ve had a blast and love this show and talented cast! It’s something to see!” Rivera tweeted on Friday as she began her last day of filming.

Last week, the former Glee star shared another tease about the upcoming series, which is being executive produced by Step Up originals, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum. Although she was just beginning the last episode of the first season when she wrote the tweet, it’s clear that her excitement levels have been consistent throughout the finale episode shooting.

“Starting the finale episode for @StepUpSeries season 1 today! I can’t believe we’re almost done. Can’t wait for you all to see this show!” she wrote in August.


With a talent like Rivera, who played mean girl Santana Lopez on Glee for six seasons, you know its going to be good. Plus, the 30-year-old actress can definitely sing and dance, so we believe her when she tells fans that the revival will be “something to see.”

Step Up: High Water will also star Ne-Yo, Lauryn McClain, Petrice Jones, and more. It follows a group of young dancers trying to achieve greatness as they attend Atlanta’s legendary High Water Performing Arts School.

Step Up: High Water is set to premiere sometime this fall on YouTube Red.
