Attention Fans! The American romantic comedy television series has found a new streaming home! Continue reading to find out more about Uncoupled Season 2.

If you recall, amidst the series being featured in the Netflix “Top 10” list at number six for one week, Uncoupled was officially canceled by Netflix on January 13, 2023. Despite the overwhelmingly positive feedback, Netflix pulled the plug on the show last month due to its failure to make a mark with an audience like many other series on the platform. To say the least, we have some good news to share as the fans are finally overjoyed because Showtime, whose parent company Paramount owns both MTV and Showtime, has finally picked up “Uncoupled,” for a new season on Netflix.

It is not a surprise that the show was greenlit, as the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 75% based on 48 reviews, with an average rating of 6.70/10. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “While Uncoupled struggles to integrate the comedic thrills of modern dating with its more serious concerns, the uneasy mixture makes for a surprisingly mature evolution of the Darren Star formula.” On Metacritic, Uncoupled has a score of 63 out of 100 based on 24 professional reviews, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”

So, if you’re one of those people who wants clarification about the renewal status, plot, and cast among other details, then look no further! To find all of your answers, keep reading until the very end. Here is everything we know so far about Uncoupled Season 2.
