Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Upload’ Renewed for Season 2. Here’s All That We Know.
Greg Daniels’ futuristic dramedy which premiered recently on Amazon Prime Video, Upload, has already been renewed for a second season as per a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
The show stars Robbie Amell and Andy Allo and takes place in 2033, where technology has made it possible for people to ‘upload’ their consciousness into a virtual afterlife as per their choice. People are talking to each other almost only through AI, food is prepared by 3D printers, and everything is commercialised.
When Robbie’s character Nathan dies in a freak car accident, he winds up in the afterlife with one customer support executive Nora to guide him via virtual communication. The two find themselves falling for each other in the first season itself. While the show opened to mixed reviews, plenty of viewers enjoyed the show enough for the studio and the streaming partner to take the call for renewal.
At the moment, the date for the second season to premiere is given as May 2021. However, since most television and film shooting is stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is still unconfirmed whether that would be the final release date. We presume that even with a little delay, the show would return in and around that period.
Adding to the news of the renewal, showrunner Daniels said, “I am thrilled to continue a great relationship with Amazon Studios and this wonderful cast and find out what happens next to Nora and Nathan and Ingrid and their 2033 world. With this news, I can stop drawing my season 2 flipbook."
Other major cast members like Allegra Edwards, Zainab Johnson and Kevin Bigley are sure to return. We hope that the second season reveals the mystery behind Nathan’s death.
