According to The Grio, Drumline will return to the small screen for a sequel later this year.

VH1 said Drumline: A New Beat will premiere in the fall.


Cannon who played Devon Miles in the original film will make a cameo appearance.

Drumline: A New Beat will capture the sound and spirit of the first film while welcoming a whole new class to the Atlanta A & T drumline. The story follows Danielle (Dani) Bolton, an upper class Brooklyn girl who defies her parents in order to attend Atlanta A & T so she can join — and revitalize — their once-prominent drumline. Dani’s quest to become the first female section leader of the drumline in the school’s history will be hampered by upperclassmen (including her cousin, Tyree), her feelings for fellow band mate and rival, Jayven, and the school’s crosstown competitors.
