Showtime Revives 'Uncoupled' for Season 2 After Netflix Cancellation

Showtime has today picked up a second season of the original comedy series Uncoupled - which aired its first season on Netflix and was cancelled by the streamer a month ago. 

The comedy stars Neil Patrick Harris, Tuc Watkins, Tisha Campbell, Marcia Gay Harden, Emerson Brooks and Brooks Ashmanskas.

Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman created the comedy. They executive produce with Harris, Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns. MTV Entertainment Studios and Jax Media produce.

The move to Showtime has been in the works for several months. A deal was not yet finalized when Netflix made the official cancellation last month. However, Showtime quickly became a desirable outlet for the show to continue as it operates under the same Paramount Global corporate umbrella as MTV Entertainment Studios.
