If you loved the first season of Netflix‘s comedy series Uncoupled last year, then you must have been wondering if you will get to see another season of the series or not. With an interesting plot that deserves to be explored, Uncoupled, starring Neil Patrick Harris, revolved around the life of a man who is living in NYC wanting to reconnect with life after overcoming a long-term relationship.

Directed by Modern Family veteran Jeffrey Richman and Emily in Paris creator Darren Star and spanning over eight episodes, Uncoupled was released on Netflix on July 29, 2022. Richman, Starr, and Harris have also been executive producers of the series along with Lilly Burns.

Now if you want to know if the series has been renewed for another season or not then you have come to the right place. Read on to find out.

Uncoupled season 2: Is it renewed or canceled?

Well, it seems Netflix isn’t interested in going ahead with another season of the comedy series anymore thus bringing an early end to Neil Patrick Harris’s search for love. We hear that Netflix has officially canceled Uncoupled.

What was the reason behind canceling season 2 of Uncoupled?

The news of the cancellation was not really surprising since post its release last year, the series was barely able to gain a spot for one week in Netflix’s Top 10 weekly rankings, and appeared only once at the number 6 position on the rankings list.

Uncoupled had failed to create a significant impact on its viewership even though it managed to receive solid reviews upon its release. Rotten Tomatoes reviewed the first season of the series with a 73 percent critical approval.  Apart from this, the series could also garner a 75 percent audience approval rating.

Moreover, according to Deadline, speculations had started last year itself that Uncoupled would not continue at Netflix when sources associated with the series indicated that there has been an effort by series producer MTV Entertainment Studios to find a new production ground. The plan to move the series to a Paramount Global network, possibly Showtime, may have fallen through.

What will happen to Uncoupled creator Darren Star’s association with Netflix?

Darren Star’s association with Netflix will continue despite the cancellation of Uncoupled. This is because he is also the creator of the streaming platform’s hit series Emily in Paris, the third season of which had released back in December 2022 and has since then impressed the audience the world over. Moreover, it has already been given the green signal for a fourth season.
