Uncoupled is an American romantic comedy television series created and written by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman that premiered on Netflix on July 29, 2022.
Uncoupled Season 2 Potential Release Date: Will the Series Return for More?
We certainly hope so! Season two, however, has yet to be officially approved by Netflix.
The show is billed differently than other Netflix original series. While most are labeled as seasons or “limited series” (meaning one and done), Uncoupled is labeled as “eight episodes” on the site, implying that the future is unknown.
Season one’s performance, unlike that of other Netflix shows, does not bode well for its renewal. Typically, Netflix waits 28 days before making a decision, weighing the amount of viewership with the cost of production.
Uncoupled did okay, but not outstanding, staying in the top ten of Netflix’s most-watched for an average of 14 days before dropping out (according to stats aggregate FlixPatrol). Iceland had the best performance, lasting 24 days. The US and UK were 14 and 13 days, respectively, with the rest of the major territories following suit.
However, given how season one ended, it would be surprising if Michael and his friends did not continue to navigate the dating scene in New York City for a little longer.
Uncoupled Season 2 Cast: Who Will Be Back?
Uncoupled revolves around Neil Patrick Harris’s newly-single Michael, so if there is a season two, he will almost certainly return.
Tuc Watkins, who plays Michael’s long-term love, Colin, may also be present, based on the events of the finale. After all, can you really cut each other out of your lives after 17 years together?
Thankfully, Michael has his best friends to help him navigate singledom, primarily Billy (Emerson Brooks) and Stanley (Brooks Ashmanskas), as well as his right-hand lady in work and life, Suzanne (Tisha Campbell).
Finally, the ever-fabulous Marcia Gay Harden will most likely return as newly divorced and ready-to-take-on-the-world, Claire.
Depending on how things go, we can expect another group of single people to enter Michael’s life.
Any updates will be posted here as soon as they are available!
Uncoupled Season 2 Plot: What Will Happen?
Season one ended on a cliffhanger, with Colin reconsidering his split from Michael.
Colin went to Michael’s apartment after a sweet reunion at the Jonathans’ wedding to ask him to reconsider their 17-year relationship. Will Michael want to go back to someone who broke his heart now that he’s finally finding his feet and figuring out life on his own? Is it simply too late?
Meanwhile, Billy received a rude awakening when a guy he had grown to like confronted him with his promiscuous lifestyle. When his old habits died hard and he got the number of a waiter at the wedding, a heartbroken Wyatt scolded him, and now he’s questioning whether casual sex is enough for him.
But they’ll all have to put their fears aside for the most difficult challenge of all: Stanley being diagnosed with stage one breast cancer and having to go through treatment.
The diagnosis shocked him, and even brushed-off jokes couldn’t hide how shaken everyone was by the heart of the group receiving such a concerning diagnosis.
