Upload - Season 2



Upload is an American science fiction comedy-drama television series created by Greg Daniels.[1] The series premiered on May 1, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video and was renewed for a second season.[2] The second season premiered on March 11, 2022; it had seven episodes, three fewer than the first.[3] In May 2022, the series was renewed for a third season.[4]




Upload - Season 2



In 2033, humans can "upload" themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing. When computer programmer Nathan Brown dies prematurely, he is uploaded to the very expensive Lakeview, but then finds himself under the thumb of his possessive, still-living girlfriend Ingrid. As Nathan adjusts to the pros and cons of digital heaven, he bonds with Nora, his living customer service rep. Nora struggles with the pressures of her job, her dying father who does not want to be uploaded, and her growing feelings for Nathan while slowly coming to believe that Nathan was murdered.


On September 8, 2017, Amazon announced it had ordered a pilot for a new single-camera comedy series created by Greg Daniels.[9] On July 28, 2018, Amazon announced it had given the production an order for a first season of ten episodes. Daniels and Howard Klein are executive producers, and the series is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment.[10] On May 8, 2020, Amazon renewed the series for a second season, which premiered March 11, 2022.[2][3] On May 11, 2022, the series was renewed for a third season.[4]


Upload received positive reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season has an approval rating of 88% with an average score of 6.9 out of 10 based on reviews from 56 critics. The website's critical consensus is, "Though Upload at times suffers from tonal overload, witty writing and a winsome cast make it an afterlife worth living."[17] On Metacritic, the season has a weighted average score of 67 out of 100, based on 22 critics, indicating "generally favorable" reviews.[18]


After a long two years, Upload finally returns with a second and abbreviated shorter season. With more ridiculous and terrifying technical advancements and a deeper exploration of the world, the sophomore season of this sci-fi rom-com series is a bit too short but still just as sweet. Created by Greg Daniels, the second season picks up right where the first one left off with Nora (Andy Allo) leaving the city to live off the grid and Nathan (Robbie Amell) trapped in the 2 gig room after Ingrid (Allegra Edwards) has just told him that she uploaded for him.


While being a sort of twisted love triangle, the series has never shied away from pointing and laughing at the extremes that technology could lead to. The first season introduced the main concept of uploading, aka uploading your mind to a server after death. Nathan Brown, a former computer engineer, is uploaded to the very expensive afterlife called Lake View where he meets Nora, one of the customer service reps working there. The two develop feelings for each other, despite the fact that Nathan is technically still dating his living girlfriend Ingrid.


With commentary on privacy, politics, and socioeconomic imbalance, Upload is still as witty as its first season. The disappointing part is that it means we spend more time with Nathan and Nora apart than we do seeing them together. As the beating heart of the series, Amell and Allo have so much palpable chemistry it made me long for the days of their coy flirtation when she was just his angel and he was just a dead guy.


But the season also expands the role of Nora's co-worker Aleesha (Zainab Johnson) in an exciting way that serves both as a surprise and an intriguing conflict when it comes to the motivations of the protagonists. Her scenes with former army corporal and Lake View resident, Luke (Kevin Bigley), are just as comedic as they were before. It will always be funny to watch the two snap at each other and try to one-up each other.


The problem with the season is it feels like we've barely revved the engine and the race is already over. The seven episodes are hardly enough to tackle the essential mystery at hand and the season feels more like an interlude than a true full season. Indeed, the show reaches its quite literal climax at the end of the final episode, leaving us once again on another cliffhanger.


While the highlight last season was easily the pairing between Nathan and Nora, this season Allegra Edwards' manic and obsessive Ingrid Kannerman takes the cake simply for how far they've decided to push her character this season. The definition of a clingy girlfriend, Ingrid takes her toxic love for Nathan to new heights this season and every level up leaves us cringing and groaning, but at least it's effective.

Aleesha reckons with all that, and by the end of the season, she agrees to take the promotion. When asked about what made Aleesha choose to take the job, Johnson reveals that there was one scene they never got to shoot, which showed where Aleesha lives.


Season 2 of the show found Nathan (Robbie Amell) and Nora (Andy Allo) working together to stop a dastardly plan that would see lower-income people in swing states targeted for free uploading via Freeyond, which would subsequently disenfranchise poorer voters and swing those swing states towards the wealthy and powerful.


The new season, which premiered on Prime Video on Friday, March 11, introduces a whole range of new possibilities both for living people like Nora Anthony (Andy Allo) and the deceased whose consciousness has been uploaded to virtual world Lake View, like Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell).


While this is one possibility, it may also mean there's a second Nathan on the horizon as the finale also showed a back-up file of him was being uploaded into Lake View following his "download" into the real world.


With seven amazing seasons of Park and Recreation under their belt, the two creators took different paths, with one developing Brooklyn Nine-Nine while the other worked on Netflix's Space Force. However, as fate would have it, both Office contributors also had their hand in creating two of the most celebrated afterlife comedies in The Good Place and Upload.


While Schur's Good Place ended its four season run with rave reviews, Daniels is still working on Upload, with its second season releasing on Amazon Prime Video earlier this week, after the first season dropped almost two years ago.


At first glance, viewers might consider the two to be quite close to each other. However, while Schur's show tackled the idea of the actual afterlife, Daniels takes a more futuristic approach with the introduction of a virtual afterlife, where humans have a choice to be uploaded to.


The first season of the show tackled with the upload of Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell) to Lake View, who was the victim of a self-driving car accident. In the ten-episode run, the show revolved around Nathan's attempts to have a relationship with his possessive but alive girlfriend in Ingrid (Allegra Edwards), while also developing feelings for his human customer service rep at Lake View in Nora (Andy Allo).


The second season picks up right where Season 1 left off, with the sudden uploading of Ingrid into Lake View. Moreover, we also see Nora escape into the world of no technology after an attempt was made to kill her. Right from the first episode, we see where the show might head off, as Nora soon joins an anti-technology establishment, which is against the idea of uploading into the virtual afterlife.


Compared to Season 1's ten-episode run, Season 2 has a comparatively short run with just seven episodes, which takes away the need for any filler plots, with the show being straight to the point for the most part. However, this decision affects the show deeply as it takes away much of the first season's charm, which included some hilarious commentary on a future not too far away.


Along with that, it also prevented the creators from taking advantage of the show's biggest positive, which is the ensemble of characters that has been perfectly cast. The sophomore season of the show included many funny highlights from characters like service rep Aleesha (Zainab Johnson), Lake View resident Luke (Kevin Bigley) along with Aleesha and Nora's boss Lucy (Andrea Rosen), and there could have been more if the creators had created a slightly longer story involving ten episodes. 041b061a72
