For the most part, the series has been doing well amongst viewers, with most reviews applauding the show for its authentic way of portraying a Black family with not-so-typical familial issues.
Standing currently at a 60% on Rotten Tomatoes and a similar score on Metacritic, fans of the new show are wondering if this is enough acclaim to warrant a second season renewal. Here’s what we know so far.
Will there be a season 2 of The Upshaws?
Right now, there is no news on a renewal or cancellation for The Upshaws as the series is still really new and most likely, is still having its performance on Netflix evaluated.
As we mentioned above, the original series is going over well with both TV critics and audiences. But as we’ve seen before, Netflix usually needs a little more to give the thumbs up to a season two, like whether or not a second season is necessary.
Seeing that The Upshaws is your everyday slice-of-life comedy, a season 2 could potentially serve as a more in-depth dive into Bennie Upshaw’s (played by Mike Epps) difficult upbringing with the absence of his father.
Additionally, it would also be interesting to see more of Regina Upshaw (played by Kim Fields) balancing being a working wife and a mother to four.
A renewal of The Upshaws would be great but the ball is in Netflix’s court. Once we hear anything about a renewal, we will be sure to let you know. Until then, you can stream season 1 of The Upshaws on Netflix.Next: Best Netflix shows with new seasons coming in 2021
