It feels as though it was only a moment ago that Upload was on our screens. Upload, a sci-fi romantic comedy, premiered on Amazon Prime Video in 2020 and quickly gained a following.
The show, created by Greg Daniels, is set in the year 2033, where people can transfer their consciousness to Lakeview, a virtual afterlife resort, instead of dying. Who knows where we’re heading. All we know is that we adore the series and are eagerly awaiting the next installment.
Nathan and Nora are the show’s two central characters. Nathan is portrayed by Robbie Amell and is a young man who works in technology before dying under unusual and mysterious circumstances. Then Nora, played by Andy Allo, works at Lakeview as a customer service representative for Nathan. They get closer during the episode, and then the manner in which Nathan dies is progressively revealed… we won’t tell more.
However, with season 1 ending on a cliffhanger, how long must we wait for season 2? Here is what we currently know.
What will the second series be about?
Filming has concluded. There isn’t much information about Upload season 2’s plot yet, but we can anticipate it picking up where season 1 left off.
Season two, according to Amazon Studios president Jennifer Salke, will similarly be a “smart, cinematic comedy crackling with suspense.” “We know our global fans want to see more of Nathan and Nora, so we have greenlit season two and are thrilled that Greg’s passion project has gained such a committed audience,” she says.
According to Robbie Amell: “I believe you’ll see a little more of the supporting cast this season, which is fantastic. I believe that Zainab (Johnson, who portrays Aleesha), Kevin (Bigley, who portrays Luke), and Allegra (Edwards, who portrays Ingrid) are all quite talented and amusing. I’m looking forward to seeing more from them, and the show finished on a high one for a lot of the characters, so I’m intrigued to see where it goes.”
Creator Greg Daniels also promised fans a slew of new technology at a virtual session for Comic-Con@Home 2020. “We’re going to learn more about the ‘Luds’ and their community,” he continues. We’re going to watch Nora and Nathan alter the landscape of Lake View.” Additionally, he believes, “we’re going to see more of New York.”
Season 1 spoilers are on their way!
Thus, Nora and Byron are in the Poconos, Nathan is ‘2G,’ and Nathan’s ex-girlfriend Ingrid has just uploaded to be with him. Season 2 is likely to address the following issues: How did Ingrid pass away? What will become of Nora’s friendship with Nathan now that she is there? What about the ‘Beyond’ initiative? And how exactly did Nathan die?
Daniels stated in a season 1 finale interview with Collider: “Well, it could have been a mistake. I’m not sure. At the time, the show had a mystery element, which I was not interested in solving.
There’s also the romantic side, which I didn’t want to conclude. Those are the two things I wanted to carry on into a possible future season. I understand that not having perfect closure on anything might be irritating, but consider how Voldemort remains an issue at the end of Harry Potter’s first film.”

Who will appear in Upload’s second season?
Both Robbie Amell and Andy Allo will reprise their roles as Nathan and Nora in series 2.
Allegra Edwards will reprise her role as Ingrid, Kevin Bigley will reprise his role as Luke, Zainab Johnson will reprise her role as Aleesha, Josh Banday will reprise his role as Ivan, and Barclay Hope will reprise his role as Oliver (Ingrid’s father).
Otherwise, much of the specifics remain a mystery.
When will Upload season 2 be released?
Amazon Studios stated in May 2020 that Upload has been renewed for a second season, which will also air on Amazon Prime Video.
However, we are now at a crossroads – no one knows when the series will return. If not for the pandemic, the show would have premiered in July this year. Unfortunately, that will not be the case this time.
Although filming began late, Robbie revealed in a photo titled “Upload Season 2. Day 1” that it began on 25th January 2021.
We now know that filming has concluded, and it’s simply a matter of time.
However, the wait may be lengthy given that not even the month of release has been specified. It may fall later in the year.
Thus, while we do not yet have a release date for season 2, we can be quite certain that it will occur (yay! ), albeit not anytime soon (soz).
Is there a trailer for the second season of Upload?
Not yet, but we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Meanwhile, you can watch Upload season 1 on Amazon Prime Video.
Additionally, the show’s Instagram feed is brimming with clever memes and stills of the cast to keep you entertained in the meantime.
