Peacock Not Moving Forward with Season 2 of 'Bupkis'

Peacock has today announced that it will not be moving forward with the previously planned second season of its original comedy series Bupkis. The decision was made by creator and star Pete Davidson.

Davidson starred in the comedy opposite Edie Falco and Joe Pesci.

Davidson co-created the series with Judah Miller and Dave Sirus. They executive produced with Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Erin David. Universal Television, Broadway Video and King for a Night Productions produced.

The 8-episode first season was released on May 4, 2023. The streamer renewed the comedy for a second season a month later in June.

"I've always seen Bupkis as a window into my life, since it is so personal and about my struggles and family," said Davidson. "After nearly a decade of my personal life being in the media I wanted a chance to tell my story my way. Of all the work I've ever done, Bupkis is by far what I'm most proud of. I am so grateful to Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video, Peacock, Universal Television and the amazing cast and writers for helping me create something honest, funny and heartfelt. I do also feel that this part of my life is finished. I'm very excited for this next chapter and for you guys to see the work. Thank you to all who support me for I am forever grateful."
