Neil Patrick Harris coming with a new comedy series on Netflix for more than a month. We have seen the actor return to a format that has made his career what it is today. Uncoupled has contained short 8 episodes for a single sitting.
The series has been helmed by Jeffrey Richman and Darren Star, the latter behind another Netflix juggernaut in the form of Emily in Paris. Before that, Star was best known for creating Sex and the City, Melrose Place, and Younger.
The most desired eight episodes of comedy has been landed on Netflix on July 29th, 2022, which followed a man living in NYC having to rediscover life after a long-term relationship suddenly ended.
Uncoupled (Season 2): Renewal Status
It’s a piece of great news that the official renewal has not yet been renewed or canceled. After a month on the service, Netflix has yet to officially announce whether the show will return for a second season. As time pass, it’ll be less and less likely that the show gets renewed and it’ll almost certainly be renewed or canceled based on its stats.
On giving the lukewarm performance of the show thus far. There is one of the best chances for any of the current crop of fledgling comedy series to get renewed also provided to Netflix’s track record in the space, it may not have the numbers it needs to justify a future season.
Uncoupled: Netflix Performance
The series didn’t manage to chart in Netflix’s global top 10 hourly charts in its first three days on the platform. This isn’t necessarily the end of the world, but it demonstrates that it didn’t hit the ground running.
Uncoupled would have needed above 20.17 million hours watched globally to chart between July 25th and July 31st beating out the second season of Stranger Things.
The show did go on to feature in the Netflix global top 10s for a single week between July 31st and August 7th. It picked up 26.52M hours and ranked 6th that week. It dropped out in the next week, where it would’ve needed 18.07M hours to rank.
|Week Period||Hours Viewed(M)||Rank||Week in Top 10|
|July 31st, 2022 to August 7th, 2022||26,520,000||6||1|
According to FlixPatrol, top 10 data suggests that the show had a familiar start but had dropped out of the top 10s after about 2-3 weeks. In important markets like the United Kingdom and the United States, the show only stayed in the top 10s for around 13-14 days likely suggesting it may not have the longevity to return for a future season.
Uncoupled (Season 2): Expectation
Should the show get renewed, we’ve already got a pretty good idea of where we’re headed.
At the end of the season, we saw Michael heading home to hear that Colin had actually been reconsidering the split that caused all the problems in the first place. Will Michael consider giving their 17-year-old relationship another shot?
Elsewhere, Stanley has been diagnosed with stage one breast cancer and has to undergo treatment. Kai’s father is still a big question mark given that Kai ducked out of a meeting at the last minute.
