Amazon’s techno-comedy series ‘Upload’ premiered in May 2020, and achieved critical acclaim for its fascinating premise. Created by ‘The Office’ creator Greg Daniels, the science fiction series showcases the after-life adventures of Nathan, who meets with a fatal car accident but receives an opportunity to continue his existence by transferring his consciousness into a visual paradise. Audiences found the show to be an appealing concoction of dark humor, philosophy, sci-fi, mystery, and a quirky romance. It was also likened to hits like ‘The Good Place’ and ‘Black Mirror’ (San Junipero). Naturally, the question arises, if and when will ‘Upload’ season 2 release? Here’s everything we know.
Upload Season 2 Release Date
‘Upload’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on Prime Video on May 1, 2020. It consists of ten episodes with a runtime of 30-45 minutes each.
Although it’s primarily a comedy series, the first season ends on a surprisingly intense cliff-hanger with the future of Nora and Nathan’s relationship, up in the air. The finale leaves ample room for a potential season 2. Also, the show received a thumbs up from both the audiences and critics for its light-hearted yet relevant depiction of late-stage capitalism. Considering everything, it is quite likely that Amazon will renew the series for another season. Whenever that happens, we can expect ‘Upload’ season 2 to release sometime in 2022 on Prime Video.
Upload Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?
Almost all the members from the main cast of season 1 might return to reprise their respective characters in season 2.
‘The Flash’ fame Robbie Amell will undoubtedly return as Nathan Brown, the coder who is stuck in a swanky after-life “midtopia.” Singer and actor Andy Allo (‘Chicago Fire’) will re-join Nathan as his helper/angel Nora. Allegra Edwards will also come back to play Nathan’s clingy and filthy rich girlfriend, Ingrid Kannerman. Zainab Johnson will return to portray Nora’s co-worker Aleesha, while Kevin Bigley will reappear as Nathan’s best friend in the after-life, Luke.
The other returning members can include Chris Williams as Dave Anthony, Owen Daniels as A.I. GUY, Christine Ko as Mandi, Elizabeth Bowen as Fran Booth, Chloe Coleman as Nevaeh, Yvetta Fisher as Batia, Barclay Hope as Oliver Kannerman, Matt Braunger as Brad, Hilary Jardine as Mildred, Rhys Slack as Dylan, Jessica Tuck as Viv, and Scott Patey as Josh Pitzer, among others.
Upload Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In the finale of Season 1, Nora finds out the actual truth about Nathan’s death. She learns that Nathan got himself killed to cover up for betraying his best friend Jamie by agreeing to Ingrid’s father’s business proposal. Nora is disappointed in Nathan for sacrificing his dreams for money. She conveys the same to her father, who advises her to give Nathan a chance to explain himself. But it’s too late as Nathan has exhausted all is data while saving Nora from the assassin. Therefore, when Nora confesses her feelings for him, he doesn’t respond. A heartbroken Nora leaves the city. Ingrid uploads herself to be with Jamie forever. She adds a GB to his account but he gets shocked and angry on seeing Ingrid, and loses his data again.
Season 2 might pick up from the ending of the first season. Nathan might find himself in a pickle after Ingrid’s entry to Lakeview. We can expect Nathan to pull out all stops to mend his relationship with Nora and to unravel the conspiracy behind Kammerman’s shady business.
