Netflix was an overwhelming success with this show and received widespread acclaim, yet they decided not to renew it after its initial run had finished. Luckily, Showtime came through quickly to rescue this gem of an entertainment series by signing on and picking it up immediately after Netflix announced they wouldn’t renew it.

Though there has been no official confirmation yet, fans remain hopeful for another season of Uncoupled. Star has become known as an accomplished creator of high-quality rom-coms such as this one and Uncoupled certainly fits that mold. Furthermore, its first season ended on an exciting cliffhanger so there’s a good chance it may return for more episodes!

Tuc Watkins

After its successful first season, fans are eager to know if Uncoupled will return for a second. Although Netflix has not given official approval of a renewal yet, it is expected. Neil Patrick Harris stars as Michael in this Netflix original series created by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman featuring Tisha Campbell, Brooks Ashmanskas, Emerson Brooks and Marcia Gay Harden among many others.

Harris remains hopeful that their series will soon return, even as production on it has been temporarily put on hold due to a writers’ strike. He recently expressed his wish to film in warmer temperatures as this would make filming more vibrant and lively; however, any delays could cost production dearly; hopefully it should return by late summer or early fall to give their fans hope!

Tisha Campbell

Uncoupled debuted last July on Netflix and quickly became an audience favorite. Starring Neil Patrick Harris as Michael, a gay New York real estate agent trying to navigate his dating life after being dumped by his partner of 17 years, Uncoupled was created by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman and also features Tuc Watkins, Tisha Campbell Brooks Ashmanskas and Emerson Brooks as regular cast members.

Uncoupled follows Michael as he navigates an unfamiliar world in search of love. As a single gay man in America, Michael learns all about dating as well as the changing landscape in his community over two decades.

Neil Patrick Harris may receive the spotlight for his portrayal of Michael, but Tisha Campbell truly steals the show as Suzanne Prentiss, Michael’s business partner and close confidante. Tisha, best known from How I Met Your Mother actress Tisha is an engaging performer whose performances never cease to make audiences laugh out loud!

Brooks Ashmanskas

Uncoupled was recently saved from cancellation by Showtime and is expected to return for its second season. Neil Patrick Harris stars as Michael Lawson, an over-40s gay male navigating single life alongside Tuc Watkins’ long-term partner Colin, Tisha Campbell’s Suzanne, Emerson Brooks’ Billy and Brooks Ashmanskas’ Stanley (all played by Tuc Watkins).

Production for Season 7 remains uncertain due to the ongoing writer’s strike; however, co-creators Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman have begun developing scripts for it.

One of the main mysteries from season one was who Kai’s father is; this would be great to explore in season two. In an interview with TVLine, star Darren Star teased that there could be some big surprises in store for fans this season and hinted at introducing a new character (presumably European) – giving no details but only saying they would appear.

Emerson Brooks

Uncoupled found its new home on Showtime after Netflix cancelled it after only one season, where Neil Patrick Harris stars as Michael, an LGBT New Yorker navigating dating after 17 years with someone else leaves him. Additionally, Tisha Campbell stars as Suzanne; Brooks Ashmanskas plays Stanley; Marcia Gay Harden plays Claire; all created by Sex and the City and Emily in Paris creator Darren Star.

Though production has been delayed by the writer’s strike, Harris remains hopeful that filming can resume soon. Recently he shared his experiences filming season one and revealed he prefers warmer temperatures when filming.

Brooks is best known for his role as Uncoupled’s leading man; however, he has also appeared in other television shows and films as well as voiced characters in popular video games. Additionally, the NAACP Image Award winner works as a stuntman trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Tai Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do and hand-to-hand weapons combat; as well as commercials and music videos.


Fans of Neil Patrick Harris and the delightful cast can look forward to more dating adventures and laughter as Uncoupled Season 2 continues the story, now on Showtime, after Netflix’s cancellation.
