Uncoupled has been renewed by Showtime for a second season and maybe beyond deadline. Following the recent combination of Paramount+ and Showtime, Netflix canceled the comedy series starring Neil Patrick Harris last month.
The show, developed by Darren Star, the man behind Emily in Paris, and Modern Family alumnus Jeffrey Richman, fits into the premium network’s current initiative to bring more shows with “culturally diverse viewpoints,” such as The L Word and The Chi.
In Uncoupled, Harris plays Michael Lawson, a middle-aged real estate agent in New York City. Michael must navigate a dramatically changed dating landscape after his 17-year-old boyfriend Colin dumps him, or he will be single for the rest of his life.
The first season’s dual themes of finding love and friendship were interspersed with some serious moments and plenty of comedic moments. Nevertheless, it was canceled by Netflix in January as MTV Studios looked for a new home for a show.
According to the article, compared to its Netflix counterpart, Uncoupled is expected to be edgier and racer in its new home. No doubt fans of the show will be happy to learn that the premium network will give their favorite show more freedom than Netflix.
The L Word and Fellow Travelers, a Showtime limited series starring Matt Bomer, Jonathan Bailey, Allison WilliamsLGBTQ+-themed Jelani Alladin and Noah J. Ricketts will be joining these types of films.
A lot has happened at Showtime over the past few weeks. It was revealed that the premium network will work with the Paramount+ streaming service. Showtime’s new president, Chris McCarthy, has outlined a new approach that emphasizes storylines with complex characters (like those in Dexter and Yellowjackets), powerful worlds (like those in Billions and Homeland), and metrocultural environments, which Uncoupled fits into .
While shows like American Gigolo, Let The Right One In, and Three Woman (now headed to STARZ) remain canceled, Showtime has already ordered numerous spin-offs from the Dexter and Billions worlds in an effort to expand into the first two categories.
The cast of Uncoupled’s first season includes Harris as Michael Lawson, Tuc Watkins as his 17-year-old partner Colin McKenna, Tisha Campbell as his business partner Suzanne Prentiss, Marcia Gay Harden as Claire Lewis, Emerson Brooks as Billy Burns and Brooks Ashmanskas as Stanley. James. André De Shields, Colin Hanlon, Jai Rodriguez, Stephanie Faracy and others round out the cast.
