Read the review of season 1 of Standing Up.

Gracing the streaming service of Netflix on March 18, 2022, was the dramedy Standing Up with its debut season. Releasing on a heavy day in the streaming schedule, the French series took its chance, bringing the reality of being a stand-up comedian.

Premise

Following three different stand-up comedians at various stages of their careers, Standing Up shows the sobering reality of making a career in comedy. From sinking in a stand-up set to trying to make it to the biggest stage, this dramedy brings joy, drama, and seriousness to the industry.

Critical reception

At Ready Steady Cut, we gave Standing Up a favorable review:

Standing Up is worth the time, even if to at least appreciate a problematic form of performing art.”

Will there be a season 2 of Standing Up – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC

At this moment in time, Standing Up has not been renewed for a second season by Netflix. The French series has potential, so let’s discuss the probability that this series will be renewed.

From a storyline perspective, Standing Up season 1 feels mostly conclusive with the ending. There was not anything nagging at the viewers when episode 6 closed. This is usually a sign that a second season will not be forthcoming, as writers typically like to entice viewers with a twist. However, the series could be renewed. The story does have continuation potential — the writers could easily continue to explore the life of a stand-up as they continue rising in the ranks.

Netflix is all about the watch hours, so regardless of the strength of the story, that will be the most significant factor.

However, we predict there will not be a second season. We’ll keep you posted.
