Make or Break Season 1



The personal element of these sports-style docuseries is vital to how good they are. Sure, we have the shock and awe in the water, but by making these surfers relatable to us, the viewer makes the journey worth investing in. Whether you are rooting for Kelly Slater to win one more title or Tatiana Weston-Webb to capture her crown, you are getting to know these people and cheering and getting caught up in those competitions.


Want to watch along? You can find MIOBI on Hulu and the Freeform app, all you have to have is a subscription/cable login. You can also buy the DVDs or purchase seasons or single episodes on various platforms, like iTunes. Join us in the cheesiness and the early 2010s TV gymnastics by using the hashtag #MakeItOrBreakItDown on Twitter as you watch.


Make It or Break It (a.k.a. MIOBI) is an American teen/family drama television series that focused on the lives of teen gymnasts who strived to make it to the Olympic Games in 2012.

In the second season, the girls are joined at The Rock by superstar male gymnast Austin Tucker (Zane Holtz). Payson, who has undergone surgery, attempts to revitalize her gymnastic career and becomes romantically involved with her coach Sasha Belov. The Kmetko family struggles financially with the loss of Emily's scholarship. The girls compete at trials for the World Championships and all four make the Worlds team. Emily is forced to wear an ankle monitor due to her probation after being caught stealing. The other girls train for the World Gymnastics Competition, a task made harder by the presence of their arch enemy, Kelly Parker, at The Rock. In the season two finale, the four girls lead the team to the World Competition in Rio de Janeiro, where they win team gold.


Season Three opens with Payson, Lauren, and Kaylie heading to the American Olympic Training Center as they prepare for the 2012 London Olympics. They deal with a new coach and teammates, including up-and-coming gymnast Jordan Randall, whose presence causes tension within the group. Coach Mac pairs up the girls, forcing Kaylie to live and work with Kelly Parker and Lauren to work with Payson. Kelly is not good enough for the Olympics and leaves gymnastics. Austin does not make the Olympic Team and blames Kaylie. Jordan reveals that a former coach molested her when she was young. Desperate to ensure her spot on the team, Wendy drugs Kaylie with a cold medicine containing a banned substance. After Austin and Kaylie reunite, then Lauren, Payson, and Jordan tell the NGO that they are boycotting Olympic tryouts unless Kaylie is allowed to perform. Lauren discovers the secret Wendy has been hiding and exposes her, getting Wendy kicked out. The season three finale culminates with the five girls, Payson, Lauren, Kaylie, Jordan, and Colleen, being chosen to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.

The first season follows the 2021 competition, navigating as the league responds to the global pandemic, while exploring the surfing culture along with issues including diversity, mental health, and the physical impact of the sport.


Emily is the newest member of The Rock. Upon her arrival, she poses a threat to fellow gymnast Lauren Tanner, and ultimately beats her for a spot in the top three alongside Payson Keeler and Kaylie Cruz at The Rock's national trials. Throughout the series, Emily's family is revealed to be in trouble financially. To help her mother and handicapped brother, she takes it upon herself to be the responsible figure of the household, working at The Pizza Shack whenever she is not in practice. At the shack, she meets Razor, a fellow employee who likes her. She begins to show feelings for Razor until Razor leaves to work as a concert roadie, asking his friend Damon to fill in for him while he was gone. Damon and Emily's relationship grows stronger each episode. Emily also shows feelings for Kaylie's brother Leo, but ultimately falls for Damon. She is not as good friends with Kaylie, Payson, and Lauren as those three are to each other, but eventually develops a friendship with the three. Emily ends up placing twelfth at Nationals after Sasha lets her do her original floor routine, and with support from her family and Damon. She breaks up with Damon, though, after finding out he was in jail for buying stolen equipment and neglecting to call her for days. It is shown throughout the next few episodes that Emily obviously still has feelings for Damon, but is trying to stay focused on her gymnastics so she won't admit them to him. In the episode "The Only Thing We Have to Fear ..." Emily finally works up guts to tell Damon that she loves him. The two share a kiss for the first time in months. Later in that episode Sasha finds out that Emily has a job, so when Damon calls to tell her his big news, Emily is upset and lies to him telling him that she never wants to see him again. After it is discovered that she has a job she loses her scholarship, but is later informed that a private sports endowment group is going to fund her to continue training at the Rock. (The group is really Steve Tanner secretly funding her) She is one of the Rock Rebels, after being left behind for the China meet she competes in a meet that brings China to the Rock. She goes to compete in France, but being caught after sneaking out to see Damon she is not allowed to compete. During Nationals practice Ellen Beals is extra hard on Emily, making her do two sets while everyone else does one. She is told by Marty, after he is fired, that she can do anything that she sets her mind too. She is one of the Top Ten of the Nationals team who will continue training for one of the six spots on the World's team. She also finds out that it is Steve Tanner who is paying for her scholarship after Lauren shows her the papers and check copies.


Make or Break is back for another season, continuing to follow some of the world's best surfers as they compete for the World Championship title. The show offers new levels of access to the sport's top competitors including 11-time champion Kelly Slater, 8-time champ Stephanie Gilmore, and 3-time championship winner Gabriel Medina. Make or Break not only strives to raise the bar for how the physical act of surfing is filmed, but also shine a light on the physical and mental obstacles faced by the athletes themselves.


Of course, surfing is much more than a sport; it's a lifestyle, complete with its own deep-rooted culture that helps Make or Break stand apart from other sports documentaries. Part of the unique culture of surfing is the music, which is why Make or Break turned to composer CJ Mirra. Mirra has contributed to a number of surf-related projects since he was first enlisted by director Chris McClean to score the 2013 documentary Beyond the Stars, using a unique blend of electronic and live instruments to reflect the ever-changing and flowing nature of the ocean itself. Now, just in time for the show's second season, Make or Break is releasing a soundtrack of Mirra's work on seasons 1 and 2. Screen Rant is excited to exclusively premiere "I Feel Alive" from the upcoming soundtrack.


Make or Break season 2 debuts February 17th on Apple TV+. Make or Break: Seasons 1 & 2 - Apple TV+ Original Series Soundtrack will be released the same day on digital platforms courtesy of Lakeshore Records, and can be pre-saved here.


The company will release four episodes of season two on Friday, February 17, followed by another four episodes on February 24. The eight-part season spotlights elite internationally-recognized World Surf League champions Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore, Filipe Toledo, and others.


"Make or Break" offers behind-the-scenes access to the world's best surfers as they compete for the top title at the Men's and Women's World Surf League Championship Tour. The new season takes viewers on location for the 2022 competition to surfing locations worldwide.


Season two will offer a look into the aspirations, challenges, accomplishments and personal lives of the surfers, and includes the first-ever mid-season cut, international rivalries, and record-breaking upsets.


In an attempt to make this desire into a reality, the front office made the rather strategic move of dealing for power forward Juan Hernangomez from the Minnesota Timberwolves for the low cost of Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards, and the right to swap second-round picks in 2026. 041b061a72
