Neil Patrick Harris’s new comedy series has been on Netflix for over a month. It sees the actor return to a format that made his career what it is today. Uncoupled’s short 8 episodes can be watched in a single sitting so if you’ve already binged through and looking news on season 2, here’s what we know.
The series is helmed by Jeffrey Richman and Darren Star, the latter behind another Netflix juggernaut in the form of Emily in Paris. Before that, Star was best known for creating Sex and the City, Melrose Place, and Younger.
Eight episodes of the comedy landed on Netflix on July 29th, 2022, which followed a man living in NYC having to rediscover life after a long-term relationship suddenly ended.
Uncoupled Season 2 Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Not yet renewed or canceled
Our Renewal Prediction: 50/50
After a month on the service, Netflix has yet to officially announce whether the show will return for a second season.
As time goes by, it’ll be less and less likely that the show gets renewed and it’ll almost certainly be renewed or canceled based on its stats.
Given the lukewarm performance of the show thus far (more on this below), we’re currently 50/50 on the show’s future. It has one of the best chances of any of the current crop of fledgling comedy series to get renewed but given Netflix’s track record in the space, it may not have the numbers it needs to justify a future season.
How well is Uncoupled performing on Netflix?
The series didn’t manage to chart in Netflix’s global top 10 hourly charts in its first three days on the platform. This isn’t necessarily the end of the world, but it demonstrates that it didn’t hit the ground running.
Uncoupled would have needed above 20.17 million hours watched globally to chart between July 25th and July 31st beating out the second season of Stranger Things.
The show did go on to feature in the Netflix global top 10s for a single week between July 31st and August 7th. It picked up 26.52M hours and ranked 6th that week. It dropped out in the next week where it would’ve needed 18.07M hours to rank.
