Will we see more of this comedy-drama series? Continue reading to learn more about UnPrisoned Season 2.
Attention readers! The entire first season of UnPrisoned is currently available to stream exclusively on Hulu. The fact that these episodes are half-hour comedies makes it clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that fans who haven’t already binge-watched them will do so by the end of the day or week.
UnPrisoned is a half-hour comedy inspired by Tracy McMillan’s life about a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.
The eight episodes fly by in an instant, and somehow they manage to be both timely and nostalgic which star Kerry Washington as Paige Alexander and Delroy Lindo as Edwin Alexander. Hence, it is evident that there will undoubtedly be a lot of inquiries about an early series renewal.
Therefore, if you have the same question, then you have come to the right place! We at Web News Observer have compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the current status of the series. Here’s everything we know so far about UnPrisoned Season 2.
Is UnPrisoned renewed for Season 2?
The second season of UnPrisoned has not yet been announced by the network as of March 2023. As mentioned above, we know that the first season premiered all the new episodes on Hulu a few hours ago, making it unreasonable to ask for any updates about a potential second-season renewal as it is evidently too soon for any major network to make such a significant statement in such a short period of time.
However, the fact that the series lacks any extravagant CGI or VFX might work to its advantage. In the meantime, the fans should wait for the network to acknowledge this information. We understand your anticipation of knowing what’s next in the tale, you should know that the network may assess its performance and reception before renewing the series for future seasons, and it takes some time.
The overall reception from the viewers and critics also plays a crucial role in renewing the series for additional seasons, which discloses its popularity in the genre of this streaming platform’s extensive catalog. Right now, the season has 90% on the Tomatometer with 10 critic ratings and 100% as an audience score with 13 user ratings, which is a good sign for a renewal.
If the show is greenlit, we can predict that the potential release date might happen sometime around 2024. We can anticipate it to have a similar time frame if the production moves along efficiently because the first season was released on March 10, 2023. The viewers may turn on notifications to get updates on when Season 2 debuts on Hulu. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on social media.

UnPrisoned Season 2: What to expect?
It’s way too early to guess about the plotlines, as the show’s creators haven’t even mentioned the second season, so receiving any confirmed details regarding the plot is way too early. But if we have to speculate, the new season is definitely going to pick up from the final episode, “It’s About Who You Want To Be.” In the episode, the viewers got to see that Paige battles her conscience.
Later, Finn battles his mother, and Edwin battles the system in the season finale that could change everything for the Alexander family. We advise you to stop reading if you haven’t yet streamed the season, which showcases, “A messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom’s life is turned right-side-up when her dad gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.”
On the other hand, UnPrisoned Season 2 will most likely have at least 8 episodes, just like the first season, even though the exact number of episodes has not yet been revealed. We want to emphasize that, if the show is expanded, the number of episodes may change based on the message the show wants to get across to the audience.
Here is the official episode guide to getting a glimpse into the season.
Episode 1: Repetition Compulsion: Straight off a 17-year stint in federal prison, Edwin Alexander crashes back into the lives of his daughter Paige, and her teenage son, Finn, just as Paige is attempting to achieve her lifelong dream of buying her own home.
