The Upshaws Season 3 Release Date and Time Slot
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. 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 Plot
As of October 27, 2022, no one knows how the current season will commence or what Season 3 will be about. It is expected to continue the tale as a multi-camera comedy centers on a working-class African American family in Indiana struggling to make it work and make it right without the blueprints to do it. Bennie Upshaw (Epps), the head of a Black working-class family in Indianapolis, is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family – wife Regina (Fields), their two young daughters (Khali Spraggins, Journey Christine) and firstborn son (Jermelle Simon), the teenage son (Diamond Lyons) he fathered with another woman (Gabrielle Dennis) – and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law (Wanda Sykes), all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work and make it to the next level together.
