Netflix has renewed the multicamera family comedy ‘The Upshaws’ for a second season. The series revolved around a blended family full of different personalities and different life struggles. Trying to avoid mistakes of the past, the family’s patriarch (Mike Epps) steps up to the mantle by becoming a better husband and father to his amazing family.

The first season turned out to be really successful for the streaming platform and fans were constantly talking about the title on social media. Season 1 of ‘The Upshaws’ consisted of 10 episodes whereas the sitcom will have 16 episodes this time around. It has been a rare breakout for Netflix, which has struggled to get traction with multi-camera sitcoms.

Series creator Regina Hicks shared her excitement by saying that she is really excited to have all the cast members back for another season. Hicks stated, “We are so excited we get to bring this amazing show back for a second season. And thankful that Netflix saw and felt all the love we got for this wonderful family. Looking forward to bringing more Upshaws’ joy to all who fell in love with them.”

Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger and people are curious to know what happens after that. In the ending moments of the finale, the Upshaw family is really happy that they have come together to overcome every obstacle that came their way. At the very exact moment, the doorbell rings and a small girl appears on the screen. When asked about her identity, she says that she is the daughter of Bennie Upshaw, the family’s patriarch.

“Bennie Upshaw (Mike 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 (Kim 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.”


All the original cast members are returning for Season 2. Mike Epps will be reprising the role of Bennie Upshaw while Kim Fields will be back as Regina Upshaw. Iconic comedian Wanda Sykes will once again be portraying the character of Lucretia and Gabrielle Dennis will be playing the character of Tasha. Diamond Lyons (Kelvin Upshaw), Khali Spraggins (Aaliyah Upshaw), Journey Christine (Maya Upshaw), Jermelle Simon (Bernard), and Page Kennedy (Duck) will also be returning for Season 2.

The show is created by the dynamic duo of Wanda Sykes and Regina Hicks. The duo has been working in the industry for a long time now and they have produced some of the finest comedy shows of all time.
