In Uncoupled, Neil Patrick Harris can be seen as a man in his forties who goes looking for love in New York because he has been put aside by his partner Colin after seventeen years. In January, Netflix announced that there will not be a second season. The American channel Showtime is now changing that. The second season will also be ‘sharper and naughtier’.
Uncoupled was created by Darren Star, who was previously involved with Sex And The City and now with the Netflix hit Emily In Paris. Uncoupled was about successful real estate agent Michael Lawson (played by Neil Patrick Harris) whose perfect New York life takes an unexpected turn after his boyfriend Colin (played by Tuc Watkins) leaves him after seventeen years.
The synopsis read that Michael suddenly ended up in two nightmares at the same time: that he loses the man he thought was his soulmate, and that he had to enter New York dating life as a single man in his mid-forties.
In addition to Harris and Watkins, Tisha Campbell, Marcia Gay Harden, Emerson Brooks and Brooks Ashmanskas were featured in Uncoupled. In January, Netflix pulled the plug on the series, after which viewers started a petition to transfer the show to another channel or streamer.
Sharper and bolder
Whether that petition had anything to do with it, we don’t know. But the Uncoupled fans’ prayers have been answered. Film magazine Deadline announced that Showtime will broadcast a second season on one of its platforms. Deadline also announced that the new season will be “sharper and naughtier”.
When and where the second season will start, will be announced later. Season one of Uncoupled is still on Netflix. Not yet seen? View the trailer here.
