‘Uncoupled’ Saved By Showtime Following Netflix Cancellation

The Neil Patrick Harris rom-com has been saved by Showtime and renewed for Season 2 after Netflix cancelled it…

Uncoupled is coming back for a second season after it was canceled by Netflix on January 13. The show was picked up by Showtime as part of its new content strategy amid its integration into Paramount+ later this year, according to Deadline.

Ahead of the move, Showtime is working to refocus on content around three areas: Complex characters, franchises and metro cultures or diverse programming, the last of which Uncoupled would fall under.

Uncoupled premiered on Netflix on July 29, 2022, and was well received by critics during its debut, earning a 73% critic score and 76% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, though it only snagged a top 10 spot in the Netflix Top 10 English chart for one week before falling off. Deadline cited sources saying that the show’s producer MTV Entertainment Studios had been searching for a new home for the series.

However, Uncoupled might evolve into something a little different than people remember, as Deadline reported that with the new move, the show is likely to be more “edgier and racier” than its Netflix season 1 counterpart.

The show — created by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman — follows Neil Patrick Harris’ character Michael as he gets blindsided by his partner of 17 years, and his subsequent exploits as he reenters the dating scene as a single gay man in his mid-40s.
