We discuss whether there will be a Season 2 of the Netflix series Unstable and its renewed or canceled status.
Ellis (Rob Lowe) and Jackson (John Owen Lowe) are an estranged father/son forced to work on their relationship to save the company he built.
Unstable is an eight-episode series featuring comedy, drama, and everything in between. It stars the father/son combination of Rob Lowe and John Owen Lowe as Ellis and Jackson.
On the surface, I expected a binge-able and maybe even forgettable comedy series with little to no stakes with some good laughs that might make for a good time. However, I got a well-written, fun comedy show with real stakes.
Rob Lowe is someone that can be hit-and-miss for me in comedy shows. For instance, you have Parks and Recreation, where he played Chris Traeger and was a brilliant and funny addition to the cast.
Then, you have a show like You, Me and the Apocalypse, where you couldn’t pay me to laugh. That said, for the first time in a long time, Lowe seemed to be having the time of his life.
I am sure most of this was due to his ability to play the opposite of his son John Owen Lowe. As a result, we had some really fun scenes between the two that never felt forced.
Ultimately Unstable paid off throughout its brisk eight-episode 20-minute episodes that make for an easy binge. With the fun dynamic between the Lowes and the incredibly strong ensemble, you are quickly invested in the show.
Will there be a Season 2 of Unstable – renewed or canceled status
As of right now, there is no decision on whether or not we will get a season 2 of Unstable.
The audience’s response will be the biggest thing that will result in renewal. In the history of renewals/cancellations with comedies at Netflix, we’ve seen that audiences dictate whether or not more will come.
So if the audiences receive this well, it bodes well for its renewal. For this reason, I am actively rooting for the audience to love this show.
The show has so many places it can go that makes for an easily written delivery of another good season. In short, give me another season of Unstable, please, Netflix.

The Lowes absolutely smashed this show. Well written, so witty and quirky. All the amazing characters! Fred Armuson!? I will need to watch it a second time. I only wish it was an hour per episode! Netflix.., book several seasons now!
