This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the Hulu series Reboot and its renewed or cancelled status. 

Reboot is an American comedy series created by Steven Levitan (Modern Family), who himself is no stranger to the sitcom format, having produced and created many successful TV shows within this genre over the years. Levitan brings his decades of expertise to this Hulu original series, which focuses on the topical reboot of a fictionalized, early noughties sitcom called Step Right Up. The original cast members are all eager to return for this money-grabbing opportunity, as well as the original creator, Gordon Gelman (Paul Reiser), who brings in his own, equally outdated writing staff.

The cast members struggle with festering rivalries, modern advances in the business and their own egos. Which is also mirrored in the writer’s room, where half the staff writers are young and edgy comics, whilst the other half are ancient, provocative has-beens. This juxtaposition of ideals and writing styles leads to lots of comedy. And Reboot is a hilarious TV show, one that effortlessly mimics and satirizes the sitcom formula.

The cast are clearly having a lot of fun with this one as well, especially when it comes to comedy actors, Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), who plays the pretentious Reed Sterling, and Paul Reiser (The Boys and Stranger Things) playing the grouchy, wise-cracking Gordon. Reboot also stars Judy Greer, Johnny Knoxville, Rachel Bloom, Calum Worthy and Krista Marie Yu. With a recurring guest spot from Fred Melamed, who you may recognize from A Serious Man, Barry or countless other film and TV roles.

The show has gotten off to a promising start thanks to its laidback style, lovable cast members and consistent humor. But it still remains to be seen whether Hulu will renew the comedy series for a second season.

Will there be a season 2 of the Hulu series Reboot – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC

There hasn’t been any word yet from Hulu on whether they will be renewing Reboot for a follow-up season. The streaming platform has renewed quite a lot of comedy shows over the last few months, most notably: The Bear, Only Murders in the Building, and The Great. Reboot seems to be an easy options in my opinion and I can’t see why they wouldn’t renew it promptly. The series has an adequate budget, the cast members seem to be having a riot and the storylines are downright hilarious. The viewing figures are also looking good and the critics have responded favorably. I would expect a decision to be made within the next few months on this one, maybe even sooner.

The first season has only really scratched the surface of these characters and this showbiz setup. There is so much more to be explored. I can imagine this series running for a couple of years and I wouldn’t be surprised if Hulu were to commission more than one follow-up season when they eventually make an announcement. As always, we’ll keep you posted on any updates in the pending renewal of Hulu’s Reboot.
