Frustrated by Netflix’s cancellation of Uncoupled? Good news, Neil Patrick Harris’ series has just been saved by a competing channel.
This is good news for fans of the Uncoupled series with Neil Patrick Harris, which Netflix canceled a month after its release, attracting the wrath of many subscribers in the process. If we are to believe Deadlineit is the pay channel Showtime which has recovered the broadcasting rights and which will therefore broadcast season 2.
Co-created by Darren Star (Sex & the City, Emily in Paris), Uncoupled follows Michael, a fifty-something who sees his husband suddenly leave him after 17 years and who therefore finds himself in the shoes of a gay bachelor in New York. A series acclaimed by fans and critics (3.6/5 on its AlloCiné record) for its subject that is too little discussed on television.
It is not yet known what are the plans of Paramount – which owns Showtime – regarding the international broadcast of season 2 of Uncoupled. In France, series produced by Showtime are available via Canal+, for a few extra euros. But Neil Patrick Harris’ series could also be offered on the Paramount+ platform, which is developing its catalog with original productions. Whatever happens, we will have to wait before seeing Michael again on our small screens!
