This article discusses whether there will be season 3 of the Amazon original series Upload and its renewed or cancelled status.
When I reviewed the second season of Greg Daniels’ Netflix satire Space Force, I lamented that his new show made me lose hope that he could do no wrong. After a binge of the first season of his Amazon Prime Video series and its upcoming second season over the weekend, I have come to the conclusion he just had a bump in the road. It’s a genre of bending comedy that poses serious questions by satirizing technology, commerce, and power. The second season, shortened to seven episodes (just like Space Force, coincidentally), is just as sharp a satire as the first. It is now featuring stellar comedic supporting turns. That includes the wonderful Allegra Edwards, Kevin Bigley, and Zainab Johnson.
So, the question remains, will there be a third season of Upload? Or will the streaming series giant, Amazon Prime Video, pull the plug on the Horizon uploads for good?
Will there be a season 3 of Upload on Amazon Prime – renewed or cancelled status
As of now, Amazon Prime Video has not yet announced the third season. The streaming giant is playing the fate of its most popular genre-bending sitcom close to the vest. But hold on! That doesn’t mean we do not have news. The series creator Greg Daniels (The Office, Space Force) recently announced that he and his team are halfway through writing the show’s third season! After commenting how pleased the Prime studios were with the second season’s episodes, he appears to be anticipating a quick renewal. But does that mean an even speedier turnaround for season three?
I anticipate a quick renewal. There is little doubt that Daniels just happened to start the third season without getting a knowing nod from Prime executives. Amazon, like HBO, often does renewals early to maximize viewership. Also, they are known to announce them much earlier than their rival, Netflix. Considering Upload is the streamer’s number one rated sitcom, and their shelf in the genre is bare at the moment, Upload will be coming back sooner rather than later.
Prediction: Look for a quick renewal by Amazon Prime coming soon.
