Showtime Picks Up Uncoupled for Season 2 After Netflix Cancelation

Uncoupled producer MTV Entertainment Studios, where Star is under an overall deal, reportedly tried to find a new home for the series at Paramount Global’s Showtime in late 2022, according to sources, which sparked rumors that the Neil Patrick Harris-starring series would not be continuing at Netflix.

When such discussions failed to result in a pickup at the time, Uncoupled was formally canceled by Netflix on January 13. Since then, a lot has changed at Showtime.

As part of its parent company Paramount Global’s announced plan to incorporate the premium network into the streaming service Paramount+, Showtime has canceled two series in addition to American Gigolo and Let The Right One In and decided not to air the new drama Three Women (which will air on Starz).

Powerful Worlds (High-stakes series like Billions & Homeland), Complex Characters (Subversive Antiheroes like Dexter & Yellowjackets), and Metro-Cultures are a few. (In the first two categories, Showtime has approved the espionage thriller The Department and is expanding the Dexter and Billions universes with several spinoffs.)

Also recently added to Netflix is the upcoming Showtime limited series, Ripley. In actuality, Showtime and Netflix were negotiating Ripley simultaneously with the network’s discussions for the previous Netflix series Uncoupled.

Showtime Picks Up Uncoupled for Season 2 After Netflix Cancelation

With shows like Brothers (1984), Queer as Folk (2000), The L Word (2004) and its current relaunch, as well as Soul Food (1999) and Resurrection Boulevard, Showtime hopes to continue its success in the field with Diverse Cultures (2000).

There are also pragmatic justifications for expanding the category. The Chi and The L Word, two of Showtime’s current programs, have some of the network’s most devoted viewers, but they also have high viewer churn because the network lacks complementing programming to keep those viewers throughout the year.

Look at this official Tweet from Pop Base, in which Netflix decided to pull the plug on the show, ‘Uncoupled’ has been spared and renewed for a second season on Showtime:

Uncoupled is anticipated to be rougher and racier on Showtime than on Netflix. Along with The L Word, it will also be a part of the upcoming LGBTQ+-themed Showtime limited series Fellow Travelers, starring Matt Bomer, Jonathan Bailey, Allison Williams, Jelani Alladin, and Noah J. Ricketts.

In the movie Uncoupled, Harris plays a gay guy in his mid-40s adjusting to life on his own in New York City after being abruptly dumped by his 17-year partner. Tisha Campbell, Brooks Ashmanskas, Emerson Brooks, and Marcia Gay Harden are the prominent cast members.

Star is one of the top developers on the MTV Entertainment Studios talent roster and co-executive produces Uncoupled with Richman, Jax Media, and Star. The company’s smash TV Land comedy Younger, which recently concluded its run on Paramount+, was also created by him. He is also the creator of the hit Netflix comedy series Emily in Paris.
