Here's How Much Money Navarro College Was Paid For Netflix's 'Cheer'

Navarro College is surprisingly not making all that much to be featured on Netflix‘s Cheer.

In a new report from Sportico, it was revealed just how much the college pulled in to be part of the inaugural season, as well as the upcoming season two, of the docuseries on the streamer.

In 2018, Navarro College reportedly signed a $30,000 deal with a production company to make a then-untitled cheerleading documentary, which then became Cheer.

For season two, Navarro is receiving the same amount, Sportico says.

“Everybody thinks we made a million dollars off of the show, and as you can see from the contract, we did not,” Stacie Snipes, director of marketing and public information at Navarro, told the outlet.

Season two of the docuseries will also feature Trinity Valley Community College, which is Navarro’s main rivals.

TVCC is also receiving the same amount – just $30,000 for their involvement in the show.

Despite the show being a massive hit for Netflix, Navarro isn’t exactly experiencing an enrollment overload.

“We have had declining enrollment,” Stacie added. “I could probably name four or five students that we heard came here because they heard about our college [through Cheer].”

She added that they weren’t expecting that though: “We just wanted to have a really good show produced about her program; we never really thought about having people flocking to our school.”

Cheer season two is streaming on Netflix now.
