Amazon's sci-fi series Upload is ready for its second version. The Amazon Studios has renewed “Upload”, for a second season just a week after the arrival of its first season. "Upload" comes from “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation” creator Greg Daniels who was thrilled to announce it.
“Upload” takes place in the near future, where people can be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife of their choice. It follows a young app developer, Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell), who winds up in the hospital following a self-driving car accident, needing to quickly decide his fate. After a rushed deliberation with his shallow girlfriend Ingrid (Allegra Edwards), he chooses to be uploaded to her family’s luxurious virtual afterlife, the Horizen company’s “Lakeview.” Once uploaded in Lakeview, Nathan meets his customer service “Angel” Nora Anthony (Andy Allo), who at first is his charismatic concierge and guide, but quickly becomes his friend and confidante, helping him navigate this new digital extension of life.
Upload is executively produced by Daniels, along with Howard Klein. Kevin Bigley and Zainab Johnson also stars in the series.
“I am thrilled to continue a great relationship with Amazon Studios and this wonderful cast and find out what happens next to Nora and Nathan and Ingrid and their 2033 world. With this news I can stop drawing my season 2 flip book,” said Daniels.
"In ‘Upload,’ Greg Daniels delivered a smart, cinematic comedy crackling with intrigue and it has clearly delighted our customers who have spent a lot of time in Lakeview this past week," said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, in a statement. “We know our global fans want to see the next chapter with Nathan and Nora so we are greenlighting season 2 and are excited that Greg’s passion project has found such a devoted audience.”
The series is part of a roster of originals at Amazon that includes Hunters, Jack Ryan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Boys, the Chris Pratt-led The Terminal List, Tales From the Loop and a big-budget Lord of the Rings adaptation, among others.
