Upload season 2 has finally arrived on Amazon Prime Video after nearly two years of waiting.
As a result, many fans have expressed their disappointment that the second season of the sci-fi comedy-drama is three episodes shorter than the first.
Although Robbie Amell has spoken out about why season 2 is only seven episodes following the release of the new season.
UPLOAD SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE AND PLOT PREVIEW
It was only a matter of time before the highly anticipated second season of Upload made its way to Amazon Prime Video after its debut in May of 2020.
Having been shaken by the events of the Season 1 finale, Nathan Brown finds himself in a precarious position as his domineering girlfriend Ingrid unexpectedly shows up at Lakeview, claiming to have uploaded herself.
Despite Ingrid’s arrival, Nathan yearns for Nora, the customer service angel he formed a close bond with during the chaos of season one.
Since she was attacked, Nora has gone into hiding with an anti-tech group known as “The Ludds,” which means “the lads.”
WHY UPLOAD SEASON 2 ONLY HAS SEVEN EPISODES
Season 2 of Upload premiered on Amazon Prime Video on March 11th, but it was three episodes shorter than the first season.
“It took the same amount of time to shoot seven as it would have to take to shoot ten,” Robbie Amell said in an interview with Digital Spy. Covid restrictions, testing, and having to divide people into different bubbles made the process take longer.”
Also revealed by Amell was that Greg Daniels had decided that the season should not be extended simply because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Greg, on the other hand, is just so clever and he said… Exactly how did he put it, though? This season’s best story had a seven-episode arc, Robbie said.
“He is correct. So, I mean, the ending is fantastic. That, in my opinion, is the best way to wrap up the season. Season 2 is going to be a real treat for anyone who thought there was a cliffhanger in season one.” However, it was just the best version of the story available.
Are there any more episodes we could have done? Sure. That was the best version of it that I could come up with. And Greg is far more intelligent than I am.”
SEASON 3 IS IN THE WORKS
Even though this year’s season of Upload was cut short, the show’s future remains bright.
Greg Daniels, the show’s creator, revealed to Collider ahead of the release of season 2: “I’m in the middle of writing season 3 with the [writers’ room],” he said. We’ve reached the midpoint of the game. So, I’m confident that that one will continue to progress.”
When asked about the second season episodes, Daniels said, “I mean, [Amazon Prime Video] are very excited about them, and that is one reason we’re deep in the writing of it.” Although we shot it before Space Force, we’re releasing it a month after that film because the post-production process is so lengthy due to the heavy reliance on visual effects.
Season three, he concluded, “is something they want to get started on right away,” he said.
