The Upshaws has been renewed for a second season on Netflix.

Sykes is the show’s creator, executive producer, and showrunner, alongside Regina Hicks.
Since its premiere, The Upshaws has garnered awards attention as well as critical acclaim for its adept portrayal of a blended family. The project is another another triumph for comic Sykes, who is best known for his roles in Curb Your Enthusiasm and Black-ish.
According to Deadline, Netflix has renewed The Upshaws for a second season. The sitcom has been renewed for 16 half-hour episodes, which will be broadcast in two batches of eight. The original 10-episode order has been increased to 15 episodes.
Tracey Pakosta, Netflix’s Head of Comedy, remarked, “Wanda and Regina have produced a fresh entry in the tradition of Black sitcoms.” “We’re excited to see where they take the Upshaws in season two, along with their terrific cast.”
