The critically-acclaimed series Upload has unveiled its return for season 2 on Amazon’s streaming service, Prime Video— Shadow and Act has confirmed.
The series, from Greg Daniels, is set in “a technologically advanced future where hologram phones, 3D food printers and automated grocery stores are the norm. Most uniquely, humans can choose to be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife.”
Prime Video also dropped a season 1 recap video for viewers to catch up. In season 1, “fans were introduced to the digital afterlife, near-future technology (i.e. a “hug-suit,” a scuba-looking suit that a human can put on to physically feel things or have sex in the metaverse), a complex love-triangle, and were left with more questions than answers surrounding a potential murder.”
Season 2, consisting of seven episodes, will debut on March 11.
Here’s the official descripton for season 2:
Nathan is at a crossroads in his (after) life… his girlfriend Ingrid has unexpectedly arrived to Lakeview hoping to strengthen their relationship, but his heart still secretly yearns for his customer service angel Nora. Meanwhile Nora is off the grid and involved with the anti-tech rebel group “The Ludds.” Season Two is packed with new near-future concepts, including Lakeview’s newest in-app digital baby program called, “prototykes,” and other satirical glimpses of the technological advances and headaches to come.
The series stars Robbie Amell as “Nathan,” Andy Allo as “Nora,” Kevin Bigley as “Luke”, Allegra Edwards as “Ingrid,” Zainab Johnson as “Aleesha,” Owen Daniels as “A.I. Guy,” and Josh Banday as “Ivan,” and Andrea Rosen as “Lucy.”
