If you were a fan of Hit the Floor on VH1, you’ll be glad to know that the show is coming back. Albeit, with a new star and home.
In case you missed the memo late last year, the show was moved from VH1 to fellow Viacom station BET. And in replacement of Taylour Paige (who played Aisha) and Logan Browning (who played Jelena, and is now on Netflix’s hit, Dear White People), they’ve brought in Teyana Taylor. The singer, dancer and actress will join the cast as new Devil Girl dancer London Scott. She will join series regulars who are returning, including Kimberly Elise, Dean Cain, McKinley Freeman (who plays Derek) and Katherine Bailess (who plays Kyle).
A full background of her character wasn’t shared by BET just yet, but it’s clear from the introductory teaser that she’s bringing the usual insane dance moves — and all of the body goals:

If you haven’t tried Fade 2 Fit yet, it’s clearly no joke…
As for what to expect on BET’s end now that the show has made a shift to the channel (and we know show jumps to BET don’t always go as planned — i.e., The Game), they say fans can expect “more scandal, sex, secrets, intrigue and jaw-dropping dance routines, which captured audiences’ hearts.”
Earlier this year, Entertainment Tonight was on set while a dance routine was filmed. When asked what she could tease about her character, Taylor said, “London is really just coming back from a big scandal so she’s just kind of finding her way and finding herself again. She’s not a villain. Just a person hitting rock bottom and building themselves back up.”
The show will make its BET premiere on July 10 at 10/9 c. Check out Taylor and the cast busting a move below:
