Amazon Renews ‘Upload’ for a Second Season a Week After Premiere
Amazon Prime Video has renewed “Upload,” the afterlife comedy from writer Greg Daniels (“The Office”) for a second season.
The series debuted last Friday. Set in the year 2033, it focuses on a young guy (Robbie Amell) who dies in a car accident and gets uploaded into the virtual afterlife of his choice. In this case, it’s a luxurious one. However, this digital afterlife belies his expectations.
“With this news I can stop drawing my season 2 flip book,” Daniels said.
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, added that Daniels delivered “a smart, cinematic comedy crackling with intrigue and it has clearly delighted our customers who have spent a lot of time in Lakeview this past week.”
“Upload” also stars Kevin Bigley and Zainab Johnson.
Daniels executive produces with Howard Klein.
