The Upshaws Season 3 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot
As the year ends in a few weeks, and many fans of this beloved TV series are returning, but the third season of The Upshaws won’t be one of them. The prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged. But if we have to predict the potential release date of The Upshaws Season 3, it might happen sometime around late 2023 or early 2024, just like the prior seasons.
The series was renewed for a third season ahead of the release of the second season on the streaming platform. The second part of the second season is set to premiere in early 2023 with the season’s remaining episodes. The renewal news comes after Hicks inked an overall deal with Netflix in 2021 to write, produce, and create projects for the streamer.
It is expected to air at the same time slot of 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET on the streaming platform. As stated above, a statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still pending verification by Netflix. So, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame if the network decides to go with the same schedule.

The Upshaws Season 3 Expected Plot
The remaining episodes of the second season are due to be released completely, so the exact plotline of the third season can not be predicted this early on. So, it is assumed to continue the tale as a multi-camera comedy centered on a working-class African American family in Indiana struggling to make it work and make it right without the blueprints to do it. In the series, Bennie Upshaw is the head of a Black working-class family in Indianapolis.
He is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family – wife Regina, their two young daughters and firstborn son, the teenage son he fathered with another woman – and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law, all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together.
The Upshaws Season 3 Cast and Crew
We would like to point out that the network has not yet revealed any new casting announcements. In the meantime, the main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles from the second season are as follows: Mike Epps as Bernard “Bennie” Upshaw Sr., Kim Fields as Regina Upshaw (née Turner), Wanda Sykes as Lucretia Turner, Diamond Lyons as Kelvin Upshaw, Page Kennedy as Duck, Jermelle Simon as Bernard Upshaw Jr., Gabrielle Dennis as Tasha Lewis, and Journey Christine as Maya Upshaw.
The recurring cast members of the series are as follows Mike Estime as Tony, Dayna Dooley as Sheila, Daria Johns as Savannah, Jessica Morris as Amy, Dewayne Perkins as Hector, and Leonard Earl Howze as Davis. The Upshaws is created by Sykes and Hicks, who also serve as showrunners and executive producers. Epps, Page Hurwitz, Niles Kirchner, Annie Levine & Jon Emerson also executive produce.
