Cast your mind back to the beginning of the pandemic. Remember what it was like in May of 2020? No one knew what we were in for, but we knew we had a whole lot of time on our hands. Perhaps you, like me, binged the Amazon Prime Video series “Upload.” If you didn’t, I’m telling you to go do it now. It’s the story set in a future where we can be uploaded to a virtual world after we die. The thing is, death no longer frees you from having to spend money. In this virtual afterlife, you can still see and talk to your loved ones and you can “live” a cushy existence, as long as you and your family have the cash to make that happen. Does the concept fill you with dread? Put that aside. It is dreadful, but the show is really funny. It also has a great love story, and characters who don’t quite turn out the way you think they will.
Today, we not only have a recap video for season 1 (because by my calculations, 2020 was approximately 40 years ago), but also a premiere date for season 2. By the way, the show was renewed for that second season a mere seven days after its premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
Get Your Hug-Suits Ready!
“Upload” comes to us from creator Greg Daniels (“The Office,” “Parks and Recreation”) and 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,” Josh Banday as Ivan, and Andrea Rosen as Lucy. Here is the official synopsis for “Upload” season 2:
In Upload Season Two, Nathan is at a crossroads in his (after) life… his ex-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.
Was there a murder? Can someone who is alive have a relationship with someone who isn’t, all while his girlfriend’s family is funding his life in the great beyond? Are “hug-suits” the future of sex? Ponder that until the new season comes out.
“Upload” season 2, which consists of seven episodes, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, March 11, 2022.
